YESTERDAY 4:30 PM

This is a paint-by-numbers selection. Toledo is 8-1 straight-up at home, with an impressive 18-point margin per game. Ohio has been outscored by an average of almost 10 on the road. The visiting Bobcats have covered once in the seven previous efforts and on five occasions in the last 21 away. The Rockets, on the flip side, are riding a 5-1 ATS streak at home and 7-2 overall. They claim an 11-3 edge going back seven seasons in the series. Too many numbers here, but they add up to a home-team lean.
