Toledo Rockets

Toledo junior QB Mitchell Guadagni (shoulder) is unlikely to be ready for next Saturday's game against Northern Illinois. Toledo coach Jason Candle said Guadagni's shoulder injury is a "wait and see" thing, and the team is prepared to move on without him for this Wednesday's game against Northern Illinois. When Toledo took the field against Ball State last week, Eli Peters drew the start and threw for 327 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions.

Northern Illinois Huskies

Northern Illinois extended HC Rod Carey's contract through the 2021 season. Carey's extension fell through the cracks -- on seemingly all of your typical college football news outlets -- due to the fact that NIU never announced it. Thus, this is very, very old news in actuality. The extension first kicked in back in early January. Carey and his Huskies crew are sitting atop the MAC West with a 6-3 record (5-0 in conference). For his career with the program, he has built up an overall record of 50-27 (37-8 in conference).

Betting Trends

Toledo

The under is 12-4 in the Rockets’ last 16 games played in the month of November.

Northern Illinois

The under is 4-1 in the Huskies’ last five games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.

Prediction

The under has been an excellent play when these two teams meet, cashing in all six of the last six meetings and going 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings in DeKalb. The under is also 25-12-1 in the Rockets’ last 38 games when facing a team with a winning record and is 8-1 the last nine times they’ve played on Wednesday. On the other side, the under is 4-1 in the Huskies’ last five games overall, is 9-4 in their last 13 home games and 4-1 in their last five conference matchups.
