Bulls ease past Eagles

Buffalo rolled to a 77-65 home victory Saturday afternoon over Eastern Michigan to keep its strong season going cruising along. The Bulls led 41-29 at halftime en route to the win. C.J. Massinburg paced Buffalo with 31 points on 10-of-16 shooting including 6-of-10 on 3-point tries plus 5-of-6 at the free throw line. He also had five rebounds and two assists.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Buffalo

The Bulls are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games versus the MAC. Buffalo is 6-2-1 ATS in its last nine road games.

Northern Illinois

The Huskies are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games. Northern Illinois is 5-2 ATS in its last seven MAC games.

Prediction:

Northern Illinois is tough at home and Buffalo has seen the best out of Western Michigan plus Eastern Michigan lately, not covering the spread in either game. I like NIU to keep it close tonight as Buffalo had a lengthy travel schedule and will be facing a Huskies squad that struggles defensively, but is very talented on the offensive end. Look for the hosts to stay within the number.
