College Basketball Betting Trends
The underdog is 5-2-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. Miami is 9-3 ATS in its last 12 games following an ATS loss.
The Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Buffalo is 6-0 ATS in its last six games versus the MAC.
Buffalo is ranked 17th nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency after its awesome showing against the Rockets and now stay at home to face a Miami squad that is brutally bad defensively, ranked 287th in the nation. The RedHawks are better offensively, but still just inside the top 100 nationally. I don’t see Miami sticking in this contest and I’ll gladly bet on the Bulls winning in blowout fashion again.
