On the other side of this matchup is the Toledo Rockets who come into this game with a 10-3 record overall and coming into this game they have won seven games in a row. Each of the last six games, Toledo has also covered the spread. In the last game against Ohio, Toledo’s offense was elite putting up 95 points and that led to a victory.
