Toledo Rockets vs. Northern Illinois Huskies NCAAF Free Pick
Play On: Toledo Rockets +5
Huge game for both teams tonight as the winner is on the fast track to a MAC West title. Northern Illinois had some kinks that it needed to work out early in the season, but they’ve now hit their stride. NIU has consecutive wins over Miami, Eastern Michigan, and a strong Ball State team. They’re getting it done with the ground game, leading the MAC in rushing. Last week the Huskies rushed for 148 yards against Ball State.
That being said, this Toledo squad has an even better offensive attack than the Huskies. They rank 2nd in rushing, but can also get the job done throwing the football. They have the top total offense in the conference. They’ve won 5 of 6 and have had no trouble going on the road to win as well, as evidenced by their 30-20 road victory at Kent St.
So with the offenses essentially a push, this game is going to be won on defense. Toledo ranks 1st in run defense in the conference, which is exactly what NIU is looking to do, run the football. Look for the front seven of the Rockets to shut down this Huskies running game and make it very difficult for them to score. They may very well win this game outright, but getting more than a field goal gives us a nice cushion to cash this ticket. Take Toledo.
