Saturday college basketball pits the Toledo Rockets at the Marshall Thundering Herd.

The red hot Toledo Rockets have won six straight following a 101-57 rout of Detroit on Wednesday as a 15 point home favorite. Toledo carried a 22 point lead in to the break and never looked back with a 51.6%-31.9% shooting edge and 16 more makes at the charity stripe.

Spencer Littleson gave Toledo 14 points on 5-8 from the field while Marreon Jackson and Willie Jackson tossing in 13 and 12 points respectively with Willie Jackson hauling in 15 rebounds.

The Marshall Thundering Herd are out to avoid a third straight defeat after falling 93-82 at Duquesne on Wednesday. Marshall faced a ten point deficit after 20 minutes but could not stop the Dukes who owned a 57.9%-45.9% shooting edge.

CJ Burks carried the Thundering Herd with a contest high 26 points and five helpers on 10-15 marksmanship followed by a 12 point effort from Rondale Watson. Jon Elmore gave Marshall ten points and four assists with Taevion Kinsey adding eight points and four pulls.

Toledo Rockets are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Conference USA and Toledo Rockets are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Marshall Thundering Herd are 38-17-1 ATS in their last 56 home games and over is 6-1 in Marshall Thundering Herd last 7 vs. Mid-American and over is 5-1 in Marshall Thundering Herd last 6 overall.

Marshall is a solid team but the Rockets are no slouch and playing well which has me looking at the points…

Pick:
Toledo +4

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.
