MAC college basketball continues with the Kent State Golden Flashes hosting the Toledo Rockets.

The Toledo Rockets are riding a three game winning streak after downing Ohio 75-52 on Friday as an 8.5 point home favorite.

Toledo jumped to a 14 point lead at the halfway point and continued to press the issue over the final 20 points behind 48% shooting.

Luke Knapke was the Rockets top offensive option with 16 points and nine rebounds with Marreon Jackson adding 14 points, five pulls and five helpers.

Jaelen Sanford gave Toledo another 14 points and five helpers followed by Willie Jackson and Chris Darrington with a combined 15 points.

The Kent State Golden Flashes have won back to back contests after defeating Northern Illinois 78-68 as a 2.5 point home favorite on Saturday.

Kent State took control late behind a 50-38 second half run with a 47.4%-42.9% shooting edge and a 17-20 effort at the line.

Jaylin Walker was the Golden Flashes go to scorer pouring in 31 points and hauling in eight rebounds with Antonio Williams adding 13 points and five helpers.

Kent State saw 12 points and three yanks from Akiaen Frederick followed by Philip Whittington who chipped in with eight points and five helpers.

Toledo Rockets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and Toledo Rockets are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Kent State Golden Flashes are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and Kent State Golden Flashes are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. Underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and road team is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

Toledo looks scary but I believe Kent State won’t go down easy at home…

Pick:
Kent State +3

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
