Toledo over BALL ST by 28

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

With the World Se­ries tak­ing cen­ter stage on Wed­nes­day, it’s no sur­prise to find the NCAA be­gin­ning their Week Nine fes­tiv­i­ties a day later. It’s a good thing as this ‘mis­match Thurs­day’ finds mostly con­fer­ence lead­ers clash­ing with cel­lar dwellers. It be­gins in Mun­cie where the MAC West co-lead­ing Rock­ets (6-1, 3-0) fig­ure to touch­down plenty of times against a Gonad (2-5, 0-3) squad that has been noth­ing more than low-hang­ing fruit, es­pe­cially in con­fer­ence play, log­ging a 0-3 SU, ATS and ITS mark – with the av­er­age spread loss com­ing by 35 points per game. That cer­tainly hasn’t been the case for a Toledo team that is 3-1 ATS on this field since 2009, 7-1-1 ATS away in week­day af­fairs, in­clud­ing 4-0 SUATS against aveng­ing foes, and whose only loss this sea­son came at Mi­ami Florida (ac­tu­ally led, 16-10, at the half). Now while we can’t com­pletely burn the mid­night oil with Ja­son Can­dle’s crew with next Thurs­day’s visit from co-lead­ing NIU on their radar, we still can only look one way. Lay it or leave it.
