Bulls clinch MAC regular season title

Buffalo won the MAC regular season title Tuesday night with an 82-79 win at Ohio to improve to 27-3 overall and 15-2 in conference action. The Bulls led 41-35 at halftime and held on from there.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Bowling Green

The Falcons are 0-5 ATS in their last five games overall. Bowling Green is 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings. 

Buffalo

The Bulls are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 home games. Buffalo is 1-4 ATS in its last five games following an ATS loss.

Prediction:

Bowling Green is the last team to beat Buffalo, coming back on February 1 by a score of 92-88. While the Bulls did lock up the MAC regular season crown, they'll have revenge on their minds plus the chance to go into the conference tournament riding a strong performance. I don't see the Falcons hanging with a Buffalo squad that has won every conference home game by at least 12 points.
