The Toledo Rockets go on the road to take the floor with the Miami (OH) Redhawks in a MAC college basketball tilt.

The Toledo Rockets have proven to be the most consistent team in the MAC West and their reward is first in the division. Toledo comes in off of an 82-77 victory versus the visiting Northern Illinois Huskies where the team was outshot 50%-44.2% but survived on a 25-5 advantage at the stripe.

Jaelan Sanford topped the Rockets offense with 22 points on 6-14 from the floor and 8-10 at the strip followed by Tre’Shaun Fletcher with 20 points, six boards and five assists on 7-10 accuracy. Luke Knapke gave Toledo 14 points on 3-7 from the field with Marreon adding 13 points and six rebounds on 3-6. 

The Miami (OH) Redhawks will be looking for consistency going forward as the team positions themselves for the conference playoffs. Miami (OH) was heading in the right direction with consecutive wins before falling at Western Michigan by a 68-64 count. The box score was even throughout with the Broncos hitting an extra long ball.

The Redhawks received 13 points, three yanks and three assists from Mike Sibande on 4-8 from the floor followed by Dalonte Brown with 12 points and eight rebounds. Miami (OH) saw Logan McLane and Jalen Adaway toss in nine points apiece with Isaiah Coleman-Lands chipping in with seven points. 

Under is 15-6 in Toledo last 21 vs. Mid-American. Under is 15-5-1 in Miami (OH) last 21 Friday games and under is 14-6-1 in Miami (OH) last 21 vs. Mid-American and under is 11-5 in Miami (OH) last 16 home games. Toledo are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. 

Toledo has enjoyed quite a bit of success n this matchup and they are playing well so I’ll lay the points…

Pick:
Toledo -2.5

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.
