Toledo has covered spread in six of last seven going into MAC title tilt


The Toledo Rockets enter the MAC championship game on the heels of a 6-1 SU and ATS run over their last seven games. The Rockets will take on the Akron Zips on Saturday at Ford Field in Detroit.

  • Akron is 2-7 SU in its last nine games against Toledo.
  • Toledo is 7-1 SU in its last eight games against its conference.
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of Akron’s last 11 games against its conference.

The senior quarterback has passed for 3,451 yards and 24 touchdowns with only three interceptions this year, bringing his career totals to 10,092 passing yards and 89 passing touchdowns. The Rockets are 9-0 SU and 6-3 ATS in their last nine games as a double-digit favorite.

Ranking 120th in the nation in total yards per game on offense with 324 and 105th in scoring offense with 23.3 points per game, the Zips have relied heavily on their defense to go 7-5 SU and 7-4-1 ATS this season. Akron’s 421 yards allowed per game ranks 88th in the nation, but the 24.8 points per game surrendered is tied for 50th. The Zips are 7-2 ATS over their last nine games.
