Liberty-Toledo Boca Raton Bowl Odds, Lines, Spread and Betting Preview

A best bet for the Boca Raton Bowl between favored Toledo and Liberty.

The Boca Raton Bowl features Liberty and Toledo clashing at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Fla., on Dec. 20.

Liberty is staggering into this game. Coach Hugh Freeze bolted for Auburn and left a sour taste on the way out with three straight losses, capped by a complete flop against major underdog New Mexico State. The Flames’ third-leading tackler, linebacker Ahmad Walker, has exited via the portal. The Flames will have to prove that they haven’t checked out on the season.

The Rockets showed up big in Detroit to beat Ohio for the MAC championship, and should have some pep in their Midwest step when they get to South Florida. Quarterback Dequan Finn, who has passed for more than 2,100 yards and run for more than 600 this season despite being slowed by injuries at varying points, looked healthy in the MAC title game and could have a big night.
