Bet on Toledo vs. Ball State

Ball State has been a train wreck on offense in recent weeks. Scoring just 15 points isn’t going to help hitting an over, usually, but the Cardinals have hit it in two of those three games. Toledo is very capable of putting up a big number and if the Ball State defense is on the field most of the game. I can definitely see the Rockets getting into the 50s in this one and leading these two to another over.
