TOLEDO over E Michi­gan by 8

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

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.
