    Can the Bulls bag you some dollar bills? Is your bank balance about to rocket backing Toledo? If you’re going to take advantage of the Toledo vs. Buffalo odds, consider some of the following factors before you part with your hard-earned cash.

    Buffalo comes into the game as an underdog against Toledo, but the Bulls have won the last three games between the two MAC rivals. However, let me tell you a little thing about winning streaks. Jason Candle’s Rockets team is on an absolute heater. After losing narrowly to Illinois in Week 1, they’ve won the last seven including four in the MAC.

    While we expect the streak to continue, there’s a little caution to be urged around the (currently) 15.5-point spread. Toledo has been a double-digit favorite against the spread five teams this year and hasn’t covered against an FBS opponent — including three times against MAC opposition. Buffalo has covered four times out of five as a spread underdog.

    Wrapping up the Toledo vs. Buffalo odds, the two teams have combined to hit the over nine times in 16 games. Although Buffalo has come under the line in each of their last four, there should be enough points on the table to cover the 52.5-point line. Six of the eight games between the two this millennium went over the line that’s available right now.

    There are two college football games on Tuesday to compile your DFS team from in Week 10. If you’re new to DFS, Fanduel Superflex contests require you to select a quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, and a “superflex” that can be any of the above. Or you can also select a tight end for the Superflex spot.

    You’re going to want to make several Toledo vs. Buffalo picks for your DFS lineup, but the value is likely to restrict you to who you can and can’t have. Whatever you do, however, make sure that you stick DeQuan Finn straight into the lineup and thank us later. The Toledo quarterback is as dangerous through the air as is he is on the ground — and that is really, really dangerous.

    There isn’t a player in the MAC who comes anywhere close to the Toledo quarterback, who has 179.96 fantasy points coming into this Week 10 clash. The second-highest-scoring player in the conference? Well, that just happens to be running back Peny Boone, who is nearing 1,000 yards for the season and leads the MAC in touchdowns, yards, yards per carry, and yards per game.

    It’s extremely unlikely that you can afford the Toledo trifecta, but Jerjuan Newton is a slam dunk at wide receiver. Death. Taxes. Toledo touchdowns for number one. Although Marlyn Johnson hasn’t had a TD since Week 4, he’s coming off the most productive game since Week 2 and the 6’4″, 200-pound pass catcher might be a good low-value add should you need one.

    Prediction for Toledo vs. Buffalo

    Okay, so we’ve furnished you with the Toledo vs. Buffalo odds and some DFS picks. Now, it’s time to close this thing out with our prediction. Are the Bulls built to beat Toledo on Tuesday night? Or are the Rockets just too explosive as they continue on their trajectory toward a date with the MAC Championship Game?

    While there’ll be a lot of focus on Finn and the Toledo offense, his opposite number out there on Tuesday is not too shabby himself. Cole Snyder has the ability to hit all field levels, and particularly excels spreading the ball outside the numbers.

    He might not be on pace to eclipse last season’s stats, but he’s a driving force behind the fourth-ranked scoring offense in the MAC. Giving the offense the opportunity to thrive will be a key component for Buffalo having any chance of success on Tuesday night. Thankfully for the Bulls, they’re one of the top teams in the MAC for turnover margin.

    They rarely fumble the ball on offense, and the defense — led by Devin Grant and Charles McCartherens — is one of just three in the MAC with double-digit interceptions. Linebacker Khalil “Red” Murdock and defensive end Max Michel will hit you in the mouth with murderous intentions.

    And yet, Toledo has a clear offensive advantage with a MAC-high 34.9 points per game. They have the rushing talent to expose a Buffalo defense allowing the most yards per carry in the conference, not to mention the damage the Finn to Newton connection can do to any defense — let alone one allowing the highest completion percentage to opponent QBs in the MAC.

    Then, from Judge Culpepper at the front, through Dallas Gant and Dan Bolden at linebacker, to Quinyon Mitchell and Maxen Hook in the secondary, the defense is stacked. The Rockets have allowed just 20.1 points per game this season. They haven’t allowed 30+ since September, and won’t have done in October by the end of a comfortable win on Tuesday night.

    Prediction: Toledo 34, Buffalo 21
