Toledo vs Bowling Green Prediction

BGSU is coming into this game as a 9.5 point underdog with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. BGSU played really well in their last game winning against Buffalo and every time the Bulls tried to come back in that game, BGSU just kept adding on to the score. They have had an extra week to prepare for this game as well. Toledo is coming off of a bad loss in their last game and they did not play well in that one, they have not really played well in their last few games now. BGSU has been getting better each week and they will play hard in this game looking for a strong finish to their season. The best bet to place in this game is BGSU to cover the spread here.

Notable Quotes

 
“We’re in a unique situation. We’re No. 1 in the league in yards per play and dead last in number of plays run. I haven’t been in that situation before. That means that every play matters, especially in the red zone and third down. Those plays become heightened, and when you don’t have a lot of success in those situations, there becomes more pressure and anxiety.” - Jason Candle on his team this season.
 
 
“So, we’re ready to make a change. It’s tough but at the same time football players, when you have a bad play, you’ve got to forget that play before the next play. The next play is more important than the last. That’s how we have to look at things.” - Jordan Murphy on turning the tide in their program moving forward.
