College Basketball Betting Trends

Akron

The Zips are 6-17 ATS in their last 23 Tuesday games. Akron is 5-0 ATS in its last five games overall.

Buffalo

The Bulls are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 home games. Buffalo is 21-10-1 ATS in its last 32 games overall.

Prediction:

The Bulls won by a count of 76-70 at the Zips back on February 12 and have been awesome at home over the last week. This is an uphill battle for an Akron team that was playing poorly before taking down the RedHawks. Akron can hang defensively, but its porous offensive production is bound to hurt against a Buffalo squad ranked in the top 30 nationally in both adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency. Go with the hosts to cover.
