Why Bet On Northern Illinois to Beat #20 Toledo (-7)
NIU has scored 40+ ppints in three straight wins.
After losing 13 to 20 to Ohio State, the Huskies ended up losing 14 to 17 to Boston College on the road and losing 19 to 29 to Central Michigan on the road. But, since the 3 straight losses, the Huskies have been awesome.
Northern Illinois dominated Ball State 59 to 41. The Huskies destroyed Miami-Ohio 45 to 12. They put a decent beat down on Eastern Michigan 49 to 21. The key for Northern Illinois is their defense. If they can control Toledo’s offense, they could upset the Rockets straight up on Tuesday night. That will be easier said than done.
Why Bet On #20 Toledo (-7) to Beat Northern Illinois
The Rockets don’t have any undefeated or one-loss opponents left on their schedule.
The Rockets aren’t just undefeated straight up this season. The Rockets are also close to perfect against the spread in 2015. Toledo has gone 6-0-1 ATS this season. That’s impressive.
Toledo has been winning straight up and against the spread by playing both tough offense and tough defense. The Rockets are averaging a terrific 471 total yards and 37 points per game. What’s more impressive is that Toledo is allowing only 16.3 total points and a total of 367.1 yards per game on defense.
With an offense that can score against anybody and a defense that has the ability to dominate opposing teams, it’s going to be difficult for Northern Illinois to upset Toledo straight up in this game. But, the Huskies could keep it close. Northern Illinois is playing very well. Expect Toledo to eke out a close win. My final score prediction is Toledo 28, Northern Illinois 24
