HUGE PLAY TONIGHT ON TOLEDO ROCKETS FOR ME --- Top play of the day on the Toledo Rockets over Miami, Oh in the first round of the MAC Conference tournament.
The MAC, unlike a lot of confcrences, allows teams to host games in the early stages before going to a neutral site. The funny thing is I forgot this fact and I thought Vegas was listing Toledo as a two-point favorite because the game was on a neutral court. Wrong!!
It's in Toledo's back yard and they're still only a two-point favorite. I'm not sure why, but I'll take it. For starters, Toledo is a lot hotter than Miami, Oh recently, winning six of their last seven games with the only loss coming at Northern Illinois. Miami, on the other hand, has dropped three straight, five of their last six and six of their last eight. And the only games they're winning are home games.
The Redhawks are a pathetic 2-13 SU on the road, scoring just 58 points per game while allowing 67. And while Toledo is only 9-8 at home (they're actuaclly decent on the road), but they score 72 points per contest while allowing around 69. No, it's not a large margin of victory on average, but because Miami is so bad I really like my chances.
Like I said... I like how Toledo is playing right now and I don't like what I've seen most of the year from Miami. Unless they have a major meltdown, I see Toledo winning this game 65-56.
I posted on my page! Thanks Puck
