The Mid-American Conference (MAC) continues to play football games early in the week, and there is a big set to take place on Tuesday. The Toledo Rockets are set to visit the Bowling Green Falcons, and both of these teams are coming into this game with momentum.
Toledo has gone 9-1 so far this season, and they are getting close to moving into the AP Top 25 rankings. The lone loss for Toledo came in a Week 1 game against the Illinois Fighting Illini as they have been on a roll ever since.
Bowling Green is doing all that they can to keep pressure on Toledo, and they have now rattled off four wins in a row. The Falcons are still just 6-4 on the year, but they are hoping to finish the season on a high note.
The Toledo Rockets are 10-point betting favorites over the Bowling Green Falcons on Tuesday night.
Toledo Can Really Score
The Toledo Rockets are coming into Tuesday night scoring 35.9 points per game, and they just continue to light up opposing defenses in the MAC. Most of the offense has come on the ground in this game as they are averaging 214 rushing yards per game.
Quarterback Dequan Finn is having a huge season for the Rockets as he has thrown for 2,008 yards and 18 touchdowns. Finn has thrown seven interceptions this season, and taking care of the football is going to be a big key.
Not only have the Rockets been a great offensive team in the MAC, but they have held three of their last four opponents to 17 points or less. There just don’t appear to be any weaknesses on this roster.
Bowling Green Must Defend
The Bowling Green Falcons want to score points, but that is not the strategy that will help them win this game. Bowling Green will need to shut down Toledo with it’s defense, and being great on the defensive line will be a key.
The Falcons have held four straight opponents to 21 points or less, and that has also helped their offense look better as well. Bowling Green is scoring just 26.2 points per game this season, but that number has been going up of late.
Running back Terion Stewart will have to be great in this game as he is averaging 6.1 yards per carry this season. The Falcons have had an issue with turnovers and that would cost them in a big way.
Rockets Roll to Blowout Win
Bowling Green is coming into this game with some momentum, but it’s going to take more than just momentum to win this game. The Falcons have been great on offense in recent weeks, but they can’t outscore Toledo in this game.
There has been no stopping this Toledo team since the first weekend of the year, and that offense can score in a variety of ways. Toledo will also get the necessary stops to take care of business on Tuesday night, and they will pull away.
Bet on the Toledo Rockets -10.0 as they roll to another blowout win over the Bowling Green Falcons on Tuesday night.
