Northern Illinois vs Toledo (53) – 8:00 PM
It’s time for some more mid-week MAC action as Northern Illinois (3-6) takes on Toledo (6-3). Yesterday’s Eastern Michigan spread against Akron was an easy one but the spread on this one is a little tougher. If there is one thing I can say about MAC football it’s that it is one of the toughest conferences to bet on in terms of the spread. So let’s avoid the spread in this game and instead focus on the total.
The Northern Illinois offense ranks 105th in points scored per game in the country. They have a decent pass offense (51st) but a terrible rush offense (118th). The Huskies don’t have a very big-play style offense (98th in yards per play). Defensively, the Huskies are about an average unit as they are 70th in points allowed per game.
For Toledo, their offense ranks 68th in the country in points scored per game. They are a very good rushing team as they rank 12th in the nation. Their passing attack is not as potent as it ranks 98th. The Rockets’ defense is certainly their weak spot. They are in the middle of the pack allowing 28.5 points per game but they are near the bottom of the country in passing (115th) and rushing (101st).
Both of these defenses allow a good chunk of yards but actually do well to limit scoring considering how many yards they allow. The offenses aren’t the most potent in the country so I don’t expect us to see a ton of points in this game. The Huskies only scored 10 points in their last game which was against Central Michigan. That was the least amount of points the Chippewas allowed all season. Toledo does have back-to-back games scoring in the 30s. However, prior to that they only scored 21 points in their two previous games. I expect this to be one of those games where the Rockets’ offense has a down day. A total of 53 gives us a seven touchdown and one field goal cushion (52) to hit the UNDER. I’m leaning that way in this one. The total has gone UNDER in the last seven meetings between these two teams.
