The Bulls have covered in four straight games entering today against a Miami team that has failed to cover in three straight. Miami is also just 4-10-1 against the spread in their last 15 games following a loss. Don’t overlook Buffalo making its second straight tournament appearance. Last season it lost by just 6 to West Virginia in the program’s first March Madness showing. That should help a lot today for a Buffalo team that has covered in five straight on neutral floor. Expect the Bulls to give Miami all it can handle.
