CFB (305) BALL STATE at (306) TOLEDO* 7:30 ET* ESPN2* (side and total)

MACtion continues tonight with an East Division contest. Toledo has skyrocketed from -17 to -19 and taken the total for a ride also, as that number has gone from 61.5 to 65. This Rockets club is not what we are used to watching at only 4-4 and the problem is the defense, which is permitting 33 PPG. Ball State only gains 15 fewer YPG than Toledo, but has scored 23.8 PPG compared to their 40.7. The Cardinals will also be without their normal starting QB, which makes matters worse. If you figure the Rockets get their normal scoring average and Ball State just reaches 20, that's a cover for Toledo. The total seems high, but this home team is 17-4 OVER in their stadium after a win by 17 or more points.

NBA (701) DETROIT at (702) BROOKLYN* 7:35 ET* FSD, YES

Detroit has played well and lost to Boston on the road by only three last night and opened as a one-point favorite at Brooklyn. Despite the fact Brooklyn is just 2-5 and losers of three straight, the Nets have been flipped from dogs to -2.5 point faves. What gives, the Pistons might be 4-2, but they have a -1.6 score differential. Here are two hidden gems that favor Brooklyn. First, they average four more three-pointers per contest than Detroit, while allowing the same amount. Also, the Nets are 15-4 ATS versus teams averaging 88 or more shots a game the last three seasons.*
