Toledo over BOWL­ING GREEN by 21

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

De­spite last week’s set­back in Athens, the Rock­ets (8-2, 5-1) still con­trol their own destiny in the MAC West and we can’t see a Bowl­ing Green team that is al­low­ing al­most 38 PPG this sea­son to teams not named Kent State stand­ing in the way of Toledo’s first con­fer­ence ti­tle ap­pear­ance since 2004. We’re also not overly con­cerned with lay­ing the lum­ber on the road as the value ap­pears to be with the vis­i­tors, con­sid­er­ing the se­ries host is 0-3-1 ATS of late and the Bee Gees were 33-point road un­der­dogs in this matchup just last sea­son. Fac­tor in the Rock­ets’ 8-2 ATS week­day road log, as well as BGSU’s re­cent 0-3 ATS mark in LHG’s, and you can see why Toledo still fig­ures to hold all the West cards head­ing into next week’s sea­son-en­der in Kala­ma­zoo. And though we should point out that the Fal­cons, who were 1-8 SU at the time, reeled off three straight vic­to­ries to close out the 2016 cam­paign, it still won’t stop us from glar­ing in the Rock­ets’ di­rec­tion with so much at stake. An easy lay.
