These two have no recent meetings to consider for tonight’s clash. Cincy is just 6-13 against the spread in their last 19 neutral-site games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games against a winning team. Buffalo is 7-2 ATS in its last 9 following a win and 7-2-1 ATS in its last 10 at a neutral site. Cincinnati is certainly the better team in this matchup, but the Bulls have been a tough mid-major program in recent years. I think the Bulls put up a fight. The public betting is with Cincinnati, but I am going to take Buffalo and the points.
