The Toledo Rockets will make the short trip to face the Ohio Bobcats Tuesday night in MAC action at Peden Stadium in Athens, Ohio. Toledo is 5-5 on the year while Ohio is 3-7. Both of these teams are 3-3 in MAC play.
Toledo dropped three in a row before putting on a clinic against Bowling Green in their last contest. Against the Falcons, Toledo led 14-0 midway through the first quarter only to see Bowling Green climb back within 14-10. The Rockets blew the game open by scoring three touchdowns in the final4 minutes of the first half to go up 35-10. Toledo outgained Bowling Green 539-196 in total offense.
On the year, the Rockets are 56th in the nation in passing offense with 244.5 yards per contest. Dequan Finn is 100 of 171 passing for 1,448 yards with 11 touchdowns to one interception and is second on the team in rushing with 378 yards along with eight scores.
For the season, the Ohio Bobcats are 110th in passing offense with 185.3 yards per game through the air. The Ohio Bobcats are 36th in rushing offense as they put up 193.6 yards per game on the ground. The Bobcats are 99th of the 130 teams that have played in the FBS in scoring offense as they average 23.8 points per contest this season. Ohio is just 101st in scoring defense as they allow 30.8 points per contest.
Ohio won their second in a row in their last game where they were on the road and beat Eastern Michigan 34-26. QB Kurtis Rourke is 137 of 201 passing for 1,481 yards with 10 touchdowns and four picks this season. He has 234 yards and three scores on the ground.
The Toledo Rockets are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. The Rockets are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a road favorite. I like the Rockets to cover this spread, as it is just one touchdown against a much weaker team.
