Akron Zips vs. Toledo Rockets Prediction

As we have argued previously, it is very difficult for any outfit to beat the same team twice in the same season. However, the quality between both sides is certainly a large enough difference to override this narrative. As a result of previous successes, it is very likely that Rockets are spotting inflated points because no one would even consider backing Akron on any other circumstance. Whilst an upset is unlikely, this game has a lot of meaning for the Akron program. Thus, you can expect this team to hang around. Akron’s moxie will be enough to get them to come in under a likely overlay.
