TOLEDO over E Michigan by 8
Sure, the Rockets – with their 16-1 SU and 13-4 ATS series mark since 2000, including 8-0 SU and 7-1 ATS in the Glass Bowl – have been on the EMU’s like Crystal Harris was on Hugh Hefner just before the publishing mogul departed for the pearly gates. The only difference is Hef died with a smile on his face while the Eagles have suffered a century-long torture. And though we don’t think Eastern will get the last laugh today in Toledo, the ‘Glass’ may be more than half full (as in cover) for an Eagles group that owns the nation’s 18th ranked defense (302 YPG), 123 YPG stingier than that of the Rockets. And don’t forget: two of the EMU’s three losses came in overtime while the third was a 4-point loss at Kentucky (a game in which the Eagles outstatted the Wildcats, 312-228). In fact, Chris Creighton’s crew is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games when taking points. Homecoming in Toledo is just icing on the cake for this moneymaking MAC dog. And like Hugh, you know what to do.
