Toledo is coming off a 31-26 loss against Ohio at home last week to fall to 6-2 on the season and 3-1 in the MAC. The Rockets are now 5-3 against the spread on the season but just 1-3 ATS in conference play. Toledo has a tremendous offense, as the Rockets are averaging 39.4 points and 544.4 yards per game.

Toledo is coming off a bad loss last week and the Rockets should rebound. Following their last at BYU, the Rockets came back with a 15-point win over a decent Eastern Michigan team. Akron has been struggling lately, getting blasted by Western Michigan and losing by 21 to a bad Buffalo team. The Zips won’t be able to stop Toledo and I don’t see them being able to keep pace on offense.
