The Line: Bowling Green Falcons -9
The Bowling Green Falcons and the Toledo Rockets meet on Tuesday night at Doyt Perry Stadium in Bowling Green, Ohio.
The Falcons are attempting to reach a 9-2 overall record for the first time in 12 years and a 7-0 mark in the MAC for the first time since 1994. They’ve already wrapped up their third consecutive MAC Eastern Division championship and a trip to Detroit, but they’re also looking to end a five-game losing streak to Toledo. Virtually ending Toledo’s hopes for a division title of their own would also be nice.
The Rockets seek their ninth win of the season and a 9-1 overall record. It would be the fourth time in five seasons that Toledo has reached the nine-win plateau. They’d also move one step closer to their first 10-win season since 2001. With a win, Toledo would improve to 6-1 in the MAC and be just a win over Western Michigan away from the MAC West title. A loss would all but eliminate the Rockets from the Western race.
The Rockets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 conference games. The Falcons are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games.
Bowling Green has been on an absolute tear as of late and with their convincing victory on the road against Western Michigan, are arguably the favorites in the MAC. Toledo had a tough loss against Northern Illinois but still are one of the best teams in the MAC. To be able to beat Bowling Green you need a solid defense and a good running game to control the clock and as Toledo has both of these
