Toledo on a skid
The Toledo Rockets have lost two straight and three of their last four to fall to 3-4 on the year and 1-2 in the MAC. Toledo is 2-5 against the spread and 5-2 with the over. The Rockets have hit the under in their last two games.
Toledo has a great offense, putting up 39.3 points and 416.4 yards per game. The Rockets have struggled to lock in a starting QB as both Mitchell Guadagni and Eli Peters are seeing time and have been alternating who sees the majority of the snaps. Combined, they have thrown for 1,477 yards and 17 touchdowns. On the ground, three players have over 300 rushing yards for Toledo. Guadagni is the team’s leading rusher with 378 yards and three scores. Defensively, Toledo is allowing 34.3 points and 455.3 yards per game. Their run defense is allowing nearly 200 yards per contest.
Broncos on a hot streak
Western Michigan has won six straight following a 35-10 win at Central Michigan last week in its big rivalry game. The Broncos are 6-2 on the season and 4-0 in the MAC. They are 3-5 against the spread and 5-3 with the under.
The Broncos are putting up 36.4 points and 467.1 yards per game on offense this year.

College Football Betting Trends
Toledo is 4-1-1 with the over in its last 6 Thursday games, but 8-3 with the under in their last 11 games following a loss.
Western Michigan is 12-4 with the over in its last 16 home games and 8-1 with the over in its last nine following a win of more than 20 points.
This game has the potential for plenty of fireworks but 68 points is a lot to hit. These two have only reached that mark once in their last six meetings. It will be a short week for both, so it could lead to some sloppy play on offense. While the Rockets are great defensively, Western has a reasonable pass defense that could make it tough on Toledo, which hasn’t settled in on a QB. I expect plenty of points, but a lot needs to go right for both teams for 68 points to be scored.
College Football Prediction: Toledo/Western Michigan Under 68
