Buffalo vs. Cincinnati Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Buffalo vs. Cincinnati 11/20/17

Can No. 12 Cincinnati take care of business against unbeaten Buffalo when the two meet up tonight at 7:30PM ET in the Cayman Islands Classic?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Cincinnati is favored in this game, as the Bearcats are getting odds of -16 points against Buffalo. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 154.5 points. These two meet from John Gray Gymnasium in George Town, Cayman Islands.

Cincinnati is off to a 3-0 start following a win over Coppin State this past weekend. The Bearcats are 1-0 against the spread, covering a 28.5-point spread against Western Carolina. Cincinnati is putting up 102 points per game thus far while allowing 60.7 points per contest. The Bearcats are led by Jarron Cumberland, who is averaging 16.3 points and 6 rebounds per game while Jacob Evans is adding 13 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists per contest.

Buffalo is off to a 2-0 start with wins over Canisius and Jacksonville State. The Bulls are 1-1 against the spread, but are playing in their first game as an underdog. The Bulls are putting up 80.5 points per game while allowing 75.5 per contest. Nick Perkins is putting up 21 points and 5 rebounds per game to lead the team while CJ Massinburg is adding 16.5 points and 6 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Buffalo vs. Cincinnati

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.
