Bowling Green vs. Toledo Pick
The Rockets need a win over Bowling Green to clinch the regular-season Mid-American Conference title. I’m backing them to satisfy the odds and cover a huge spread along the way. The Rockets are a very dangerous offensive team, and the Falcons will have a mountain to climb in this clash.
As I’ve mentioned above, Bowling Green is a bad defensive team. The Falcons will struggle to cope with the red-hot Rockets, who shoot 48.2% from the field (19th in the nation) and 36.0% from beyond the 3-point line (72nd).
Pick: Take Toledo -16.5 at -110
Although the line has been set sky-high, I have to take the over on the totals. The Falcons love to play at a furious pace, and the Rockets won’t mind joining the party. I wouldn’t be surprised if the hosts hit a 100-point mark in this one.
The over is 8-4 in Toledo’s last 12 games overall and 16-4 in Bowling Green’s previous 20. Also, ten of the last 12 encounters between the Falcons and Rockets have gone over the total.
Pick: Go over 165.0 points at -110
