The Toledo Rockets and Bowling Green Falcons meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Stroh Center.
The Toledo Rockets need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Toledo Rockets are averaging 76.9 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 67.1 points on 39 percent shooting. Marreon Jackson is averaging 16.5 points and 6.1 assists while Luke Knapke is averaging 15.9 points and 1.8 assists. Spencer Littleson is the third double-digit scorer and Keshaun Saunders is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Toledo Rockets are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 71.1 percent from the free throw line. The Toledo Rockets are allowing 32.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.9 rebounds per game. The Toledo Rockets have lost five of their last seven road games.
The Bowling Green Falcons look to stay hot after winning eight of their last nine games. The Bowling Green Falcons are averaging 75.7 points on 42.3 percent shooting and allowing 71.8 points on 41.3 percent shooting. Justin Turner is averaging 17.6 points and 5.1 rebounds while Dylan Frye is averaging 14.5 points and 4.2 assists. Daeqwon Plowden is the third double-digit scorer and Caleb Fields is dishing 1.2 assists. The Bowling Green Falcons are shooting 33.1 percent from beyond the arc and 73.8 percent from the free throw line. The Bowling Green Falcons are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.2 rebounds per game. The Bowling Green Falcons have won four straight home games.
The Rockets are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games, 1-8 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Falcons are 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 home games and 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Falcons last 5 home games.
Neither of these teams have been profitable ATS this season and the Bowling Green Falcons are a brutal 1-7-1 ATS at home. However, there's no doubt that Bowling Green is playing the better basketball heading into this contest, and the Toledo Rockets have lost four straight while shooting just 43.2 percent from the field in their last five games. I'll lay the chalk with Bowling Green at home, but I'm not thrilled about it.
