Odds: Toledo vs Liberty Props
- Team To Score First, TOL -130, LIB Ev
- Race To 40 Points, Neither -320
- Will There Be A Defensive TD, Yes +225
Team To Score First, TOL -130, LIB Ev
Toledo certainly seems to be the best option when looking at which of these teams might be able to get on the board first. Much of this is because Liberty has been going through countless headlines over the past few weeks.
The Flames were blown out in their last regular-season game 49-14, their third straight defeat, and they lost head coach Freeze to Auburn.
On top of that, Toledo looks to be having Dequan Finn ready to play at quarterback. He returned from injury to help the Rockets beat Ohio 17-7 in their final regular-season game.
Finn and company have broken the 50-point barrier three times already this season, and have shown potential to score early and often.
- Pick: Toledo -130
Race To 40+ Points, Neither -320
It’s hard to imagine either of these squads putting up 40 points considering the strengths of their defenses.
Liberty is inside the top 30 when it comes to opponent yards per play and is 13th in opponent red zone touchdown rate.
They are inside the top five in sack percentage and top 20 in takeaways. This group knows how to handle their business and leave it in the hands of the offense.
The same goes for Toledo. The Rockets are ranked sixth in the nation when it comes to opponent quarterback completion rate. They’re 11th in yards per pass as well.
Each of these units knows how to keep an opponent under wraps and they do it on all three levels. The chances of either team dropping 40 on the other seem very hard to believe.
- Pick: Neither -320
Will There Be A Defensive TD: Yes +225
It’s hard to really gauge where Liberty’s heads are at and for that reason, it feels like this prop is worth adding to your college football picks. Typically, defensive touchdowns or special teams scores come when a team loses their focus. Liberty clearly is struggling with that.
Liberty has seven turnovers in its last three games, coughing it up at least two in each contest. One of those could lead to a score, which makes this +225 payoff possibly juicy.
- Pick: Yes +225
