Bet The Bowling Green Falcons at -7 Because…
They are the toughest opponent the Rockets will face all season!
The Falcons have won seven straight games including their 41-27 blowout over the Western Michigan Broncos this past Wednesday while easily covering the spread as a 3-poin t road fave in the process.
Quarterback Matt Johnson completed 23 of 41 passes for 269 yards with three touchdowns and one interception while running back Travis Greene rushed for 170 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries.
The Falcons improved to a perfect 6-0 in the MAC East by racking up a whopping 505 total yards and forcing the Broncos into two turnovers in the victory. The Falcons are ranked fourth in scoring, averaging a whopping 45.4 points per game while ranking 74th in points allowed (27.9 ppg).
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
60 percent of public bettors like the Bowling Green falcons to win and cash in, but I don’t! I’m going with the 40 percent of bettors that like Toledo to cover the spread, mostly because I love the Falcons’ outstanding defense and I believe they’re going to force the high-scoring Falcons into at least two costly turnovers in this huge matchup.
The Rockets are 7-0 ATS in the last seven games, 10-1-2 ATS in their last 13 games overall and a near-perfect 7-1 ATS in their last eight conference games.
While Bowling Green has gone 5-0 ATS in their last five conference games and an identical 5-0 ATS in their last five home games, the Falcons are also just 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games against Toledo.
I like Toledo to control the clock and keep the Falcons offense off the field by rushing Kareem Hunt early and often, thereby limiting Bowling Green’s chances of turning this contest into a high-scoring shootout.
I think this contest is going to be an absolute thriller that is decided by a few points at most!
