#107 EASTERN MICHIGAN (+20) over Toledo at 7:30 PM EST
In a bad mood off a pair of straight up losses to Northern Illinois and Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan will travel to The Glass Bowl and give Toledo fits on Wednesday evening. The Eagles are ranked fourth in the MAC in scoring defense allowing an average of just 22.3 points per game and they’ll be able to keep the Rockets high-octane attack in check. Let’s break down the numbers.

The history in this series is certainly noted. EMU owns a rough 3-20 SU and 8-15 ATS record in the last 23 battles. However, in the last seven matchups, head coach Chris Creighton’s crew has been a little more competitive posting a profitable 5-2 ATS record. Also, in their last 54 games priced as an underdog, the Eagles have been worth the wager notching a respectable 37-17 ATS mark including a powerful 26-8 ATS in this run provided they are lined up against a foe that enters with steam off a straight up win. With those two parameters in play and Eastern Michigan taking the field off a straight up loss of four points or more, this team trend explodes to a stunning 12-0 ATS.

It’s never easy fading the Rockets in Toledo. Thankfully, in their last 64 lined games, UT has struggled a touch posting a weak 27-37 ATS tally including a disturbing 12-30 ATS provided head coach Jason Candle and his crew carry a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better. With those two parameters in play and the Rockets taking the field off the comforts of a home game, this team trend falls to a weak 4-19 ATS including an ugly 1-15 ATS if they check in off a conference war. Finally, with those four parameters cranking away and Toledo fighting a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .201 or better, this trend bottoms out at an ugly 0-13 ATS.

Holding a soft 3-8-1 ATS record in their last 12 on Senior Night, the Rockets will get the straight up win but not the cover. The Eagles soar in this primetime MAC battle. Take Eastern Michigan. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
