The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, — From this week’s PLAYBOOK Football Newsletter: We’ve highlighted some MAC teams that will likely get drilled in Week 1, but here’s a possible exception.

Jason Candle returns with a Rockets squad that’s a pre-season MAC favorite to at least win the West, if not the whole thing. Toledo is 14th overall in returning production and expects to be favored in every game after this one in 2023.

Meanwhile, Illinois turns to a relative stranger to take the QB job, with Ole Miss transfer Luke Altmyer set to take over and try to match Tommy DeVito’s 2022 output.

Toledo makes this decision much easier with an 8-3-1 ATS road opener mark and a 5-1 ATS log in their last lined six openers.

Toss in Illinois’ 0-6 ATS mark as single-digit non-conference chalk in season openers and you know the deal.
