College Basketball Betting Trends

Buffalo

The Bulls are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall. Buffalo is 18-7-3 ATS in its last 28 road games. 

Marquette

The over is 7-1 in the last Golden Eagles games on Fridays. Marquette is 4-1 ATS in its last five home games.

Prediction:

This should be a fantastic game and it's hard not to believe in the Bulls after their decisive win at Syracuse. Expect this one to go down to the wire and with the confidence Buffalo is playing with, I think they can find a way to lose by two or less, or possibly even record another huge win for its program and the Mid-American Conferece.
