College Basketball Betting Trends

Buffalo

The Bulls are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 Tuesday games. Buffalo is 2-5 ATS in its last seven road games.

Ohio

The Bobcats are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games. Ohio is 5-12 ATS in its last 17 MAC games.

Prediction:

Buffalo hasn't been quite the same team on the road, but regardless it has won three in a row away from home straight up. Additionally, the Bobcats are the weakest team the Bulls have seen on the road since mid-January. Buffalo already has a dominant 114-67 win over Ohio on its record February 19 and I don't see Ohio mustering up a huge fight here against the rolling Bulls.
