College Basketball Betting Trends

Ohio

The Bobcats are 6-19-1 ATS in their last 26 road games. Ohio is 7-20 ATS in its last 27 games overall. 

Buffalo

The Bulls are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games. Buffalo is 3-8-1 ATS in its last 12 Tuesday games.

Prediction:

The Bobcats have dropped five straight and haven't beaten a top-100 team all season. Their biggest struggles are offensively, where they are ranked 316th nationally in adjusted efficiency. There is no way they can keep up with Buffalo here. The spread is large, but this is a game where the Bulls can really show how dominant they are capable of being.
