Toledo vs Central Michigan Trends

TOL is 6-0 against the spread, with a 4-2 O/U record. 

CMU is 3-2-1 ATS, with a 1-5 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Central Michigan’s inability to push the ball through the air may put themselves at a disadvantage here at home. With bowl eligibility on the line, we should see CMU come out with some energy, but it still may not be enough for a physical Toledo team. The Rockets have won ten straight games since a season-opening loss to Illinois, and despite the close finishes, they’ve been the most reliable team in the MAC this season. Back Toledo this Friday.
