The Chippewas are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Rockets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Chippewas last 7 games overall. The over is 7-2 in Rockets last 9 games overall. The Chippewas are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Toledo and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 meetings.
The Central Michigan Chippewas have the passing attack to give themselves a fighting chance here, but I've seen their defense get rocked time and time again this season, and those issues don't go away on the road. The Toledo Rockets are easily the more balanced team in this spot, and back to back road games against Ohio State and San Diego State should make them better. We're laying just under a full touchdown. I'll grab Toledo.
