The Toledo Rockets (12-14, 4-9 CONF) and the Western Michigan Broncos (11-15, 4-9 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 22nd for a MAC matchup at the University Arena in Kalamazoo, MI. The game will be played at 2:00 PM eastern time. 

Toledo is coming off an 83-67 home loss to Buffalo in their last game. Toledo has now lost four of their last five overall, as the Rockets have struggled recently in MAC play. Western Michigan is coming off a 71-67 home loss to Akron in their last game. Western Michigan has now lost three games in a row, as they have also had a rough patch of conference action or MACtion. 

Toledo scores 75.0 points per game on 43.7% FG shooting this season. The Rockets leading scorer is G Marreon Jackson, who scores 19.4 PPG. The Rockets leading rebounder is F Willie Jackson, who averages 11.9 RPG. Toledo allows 70.8 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have +4.2 scoring differential so far this season.

Western Michigan scores 67.0 points per game on 41.5% FG shooting this season. The Broncos leading scorer is G Michael Flowers, who scores 17.3 PPG. The Broncos leading rebounder is F Brandon Johnson, who averages 7.9 RPG. Western Michigan gives up 73.3 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a -6.3 point differential so far this season. Western Michigan also earns 34.0 rebounds, 10.6 assists, 2.1 blocks, and 5.0 steals per game as a team. 

Toledo is 6-18-1 ATS this season and 2-7-1 ATS in their last ten games. Toledo is also 5-7-1 ATS on the road so far this season. Western Michigan is 11-12-1 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS in their last ten games. Western Michigan is also 6-3-1 ATS at home so far this season.

I am going to take Western Michigan as the home dog in this spot. Neither of these teams has impressed at all this season. I am not really sure as to why Toledo is even favorites in this game, other than the fact that Toledo beat WMU by 8 at home well-earlier in the season. I will stick with the Broncos at home +2.5, as I think the Broncos win this game outright.
