Toledo Rockets vs Ball State Cardinals Predictions 3/3/2023


Ball State is not competing for anything on Friday night, including the conference championship, as the Cardinals already clinched the No. 4 seed in the conference tournament that will take place the following week.

With an effective field goal percentage of No. 57, the Cardinals also relied on their offense to win games this season. They are ranked No. 20 due to their 37.7% 3-point shooting rate.


Their free-throw percentage, which sees them miss 68.3% of their efforts from the charity stripe, is one of their main offensive problems.


Toledo’s defense, which is ranked 274 in adjusted efficiency and 271 in field goal percentage, will be tested by Ball State.


Jarron Coleman, a junior guard, is the top scorer for Ball State averaging 14.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per contest. 


  • The total went OVER in 5 of Ball State’s last 6 matches.
