Buffalo

The Bulls are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. Buffalo is 5-1-1 ATS in its last seven road games.

Eastern Michigan

The Eagles are 0-6 ATS in their last six games overall. Eastern Michigan is 7-0 ATS in its last seven games versus the Mid-American Conference.

Prediction:

I can't seem to pick a side here, so I'm instead more interested in the total. The Bulls play at a fast pace and are better on the offensive end than defensively, while the Eagles are an average defensive team at best. I think both teams do their fair amount of scoring here to send the total over its projection.
