COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take the road team. According to latest college football trends, Florida is 2-6 against the spread in its last 8 games against Mid-American Conference opponents and 0-4 ATS in its last 4 home games. Toledo is also 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games on grass. Florida will win this game, but the Gators aren’t quite the offensive power you’d expect them to be. They averaged just 26.5 points per game last season, and that includes just a 27-point effort at home against Bowling Green. Toledo may be a MAC program, but it has been a solid MAC program over recent seasons and that is largely due to its talented offense. The Rockets may struggle on defense, but it should be able to find a way to score enough to cover this lofty spread.
