Can BYU keep Toledo limited on offense when the two teams meet tonight at 10:15PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, BYU is a slight favorite at home in this game, as the Cougars are getting odds of -3.5 points against Toledo. The over/under total for the contest is currently listed at 53 points. These two have no recent meetings to consider.
Toledo hasn’t been stopped thus far in 2016, going 3-0 with three covers while hitting the over in two of three contests. The Rockets are averaging 42.7 points and 563.7 yards per game on offense this season while allowing just 10 points and 251.7 yards per contest. Logan Woodside has led this MAC power by throwing for 939 yards and 11 touchdowns while Kareem Hunt has run for 267 yards and two scores. Cody Thompson has 361 receiving yards on just 11 catches with three touchdowns.
BYU has had a tough schedule of high-powered offenses thus far in 2016 and managed to hit the under in three of the games while going 1-3 in the process. All of BYU’s games this season have been decided by 3 points or less. They are giving up just an average of 22 points this season while the offense is putting up 20.8 points and 385 yards per game. Taysom Hill is struggling right now at QB. Though he has thrown for 869 yards and four touchdowns, he has six interceptions in the four games. Jamaal Williams has led the offense with 417 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
The Rockets have been rolling over weak opponents while BYU has been grinding with some good teams out West, and West Virginia. With this game being in Utah, look for Utah to really experience some bumps in the road on offense and be put to the test. BYU may not find a lot of answers on offense itself, though, so look for this to be a classic BYU football game.
