6* MAC Game of the Week on Toledo +3
The Key: This is a huge game for both teams in terms of the MAC West title, but I give the edge to Toledo at home. The Rockets are 11-1 in their last 12 at home, including 6-0 in their last 6. They are also 6-2 in their last 8 home games against the Huskies with one of those defeats coming by only 3 points. Toledo should also benefit from the return of star running back David Fluellen, who is second in the MAC with 133.4 rushing yards per game and first in all-purpose yardage with 159.0. He and Kareem Hunt, who has 595 yards and six TDs on the ground in the last four games, form a formidable one-two punch that will be tough to stop. Toledo is 53-33 ATS at home since 1992, including 41-22 ATS against conference opponents during this span. It is also 16-4 ATS in home games after allowing 37 points or more last game since 1992 and 13-3 ATS after leading in their previous game by 24 or more points at the half since 1992. The Huskies are 4-10-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings, including 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings at Toledo. The underdog is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings. Take Toledo.
