College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bulls are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall. Buffalo is 1-4 ATS in its last five road games.
The Rockets are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games overall. Toledo is 1-4 ATS in its last five Friday games.
In its last three games, Buffalo has lost at Bowling Green while trailing at halftime at home versus Central Michigan plus not having an easy time of it at Akron. While the Bulls dominated to the tune of 110-80 last month at home over Toledo, this is a solid Rockets squad that has won its last three games by double digits and is just outside the top 50 nationally. With revenge on their minds against a ranked team on a national broadcast, I think Toledo gets it done here to at least cover the short spread.
