Matchup History

Ball State’s 90-83 win over Toledo back on January 3rd, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for the Cardinals in this head-to-head matchup.


Toledo is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a win while the over is 11-4 in their last 15 Friday games. Ball State is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 home games.


I’m backing the over here. I like Toledo in this spot, but their defense continues to be an issue and that concerns me in a head-to-head matchup that’s always been high-scoring, with 5 of the last 6 meetings going over the total, including 4 that went over the number by double-digits. Give me the over here.
