Toledo @ Eastern Michigan
Current Records: Toledo 18-6; Eastern Michigan 6-18
What to Know
The Eastern Michigan Eagles haven't won a game against the Toledo Rockets since Feb. 1 of 2020, but they'll be looking to end the drought Saturday. EMU and Toledo will face off in a Mid-American battle at 7:30 p.m. ET at George Gervin GameAbove Center. The Rockets should still be riding high after a win, while the Eagles will be looking to get back in the win column.
EMU was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Tuesday as they fell 102-97 to the Buffalo Bulls.
Meanwhile, Toledo was able to grind out a solid victory over the Akron Zips on Tuesday, winning 84-74.
EMU is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a five-game streak of ATS wins.
The Eagles are now 6-18 while the Rockets sit at 18-6. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: EMU has allowed their opponents to shoot 49% from the floor on average, which is the 360th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. Toledo has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 349th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 77.4 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
