Fade Toledo as ATS Pick vs Eastern Michigan

The Toledo Rockets look to remain undefeated in Mid-American Conference play when they take on the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Wednesday night in Ohio. Winners of eight in a row, the Rockets have a chance to run away with the MAC, but they aren’t necessarily a good week-to-week bet based on recent results.

EMU may be 0-4 straight up in the last four road games, but the Eagles are a profitable team in the NCAA football score predictions and should not be overlooked with a spread this vast.

EMU 3-1 against the spread (ATS) on the road with a return on investment of 43.18%. Meanwhile, Toledo is 2-3 ATS at home with an ugly 24.32% ROI. While I like the home/away splits for the Eagles, they have struggled this season to cover college football spreads of 13 points or greater with a 2-4 record when heavily favored.

Furthermore, EMU is 2-0 ATS in the last two meetings with Toledo and 5-2 in their previous seven. Each of those NCAA football betting ATS wins by Eastern Michigan came as underdogs, and the last two were earned on the road in Toledo.

Two Top Pass Defenses Battle

While the spread suggests that this is going to be a challenging game for Eastern Michigan to compete in, it won’t be because of any lack of pass defense. The Eagles enter this game with the 14th-ranked passing defense in terms of yards allowed per game (181) and 16th in opponents yard per pass (6.2).

The matchup should be intriguing, considering Toledo, despite being 8-1, has the nation’s 110th-ranked passing offense regarding yards per game (183.6). Toledo’s one saving grace may be allowing the second-lowest QB sack rate in D1 football at 1.47%.
