The under is 7-1 in Toledo’s last eight games played on a neutral site. Toledo is 7-18 against the spread in their last 26 games overall.

Both of the previous matchups between these two teams this year were high scoring and there should be no shortage of that in this game. Look for Bowling Green to push the pace early and for Toledo to keep pace. Both teams should finish with around 80 points which will push this well over the total.
