Kent State vs Toledo Betting Prediction

Toledo comes into this matchup as the #1 seed in the MAC and they finished the regular season with a 14-4 conference record. The Rockets are scoring over 80 points per game, but their defense isn’t great, as they allow 76.4 points against per game. Kent State was only 8-10 in conference play and they finished the season with two straight losses. Toledo won both of the regular season meetings by scores of 89-75 and 86-71, and I expect a similar outcome here. Kent State is not as good as they normally are this year and the Toledo offense is rolling right now. Take the Rockets here.
