College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bulls are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games versus the MAC. Buffalo is 7-3-1 ATS in its last 11 road games.
The Falcons are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Bowling Green is 13-3 ATS in its last 16 home games.
The Falcons are enjoying their best season since the 2014-15 campaign and will be at home tonight looking to pull off the upset against the powerful Bulls. While Bowling Green might not win outright, I like its chances to keep it close here as it has been exceptional lately at home plus its defense can give opposing teams fits. I think the spread is a couple points too wide here. Take advantage.
