The Golden Flashes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games, 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games in November and 1-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games following a bye week. The home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the favorite is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The under is 6-0 in Rockets last 6 Tuesday games. The over is 5-2 in Golden Flashes last 7 games in November.
The Kent State Golden Flashes are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as a road underdog. The Toledo Rockets are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games as a home favorite. The Kent State Golden Flashes have been held to 16 or less points in four of their eight games this season and some of their worst performances have come on the road. The Toledo Rockets have been in a ton of close games this year, but there's a clear talent gap between these clubs and there's a long history of beating up on the Golden Flashes. A win here also makes Toledo bowl eligible for the fifth time in the last six years. I'll eat the chalk.
