Buffalo vs. Bowling Green Prediction
The 2-0 Buffalo Bulls will look to stay unbeaten in the MAC when they take on the currently winless Bowling Green Falcons at 7:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Is 30.5 too many points to lay with the road favorite or is there a better bet on the board tonight in this conference matchup?

Buffalo Bulls Game Notes
Buffalo redshirt junior QB Kyle Vantrease completed 17-of-27 passes for 353 yards and four touchdowns in Tuesday's 42-10 win over Miami (OH). In typical fashion, Vantrease (6'3/220) vanquished the Miami (OH) defense with a barrage of deep passes. The Buffalo offense relentlessly attacked down the field and looked for the big play, and often got it. Three different receivers had one play over 30 yards, and two of them had a reception over 75 yards. Vantrease's ease of arm strength and willingness to attack down the field is perfect for the talent disparity Buffalo's wide receiver corps poses to much of the MAC.
Bowling Green Falcons Game Notes
Bowling Green redshirt junior QB Matt McDonald completed just eight-of-30 passes for 128 yards and two interceptions in Wednesday's 38-3 loss to Toledo. McDonald hit a few throws down the field, but he was mostly throwing at dirt all night long. He failed to complete even 30% of his passes, which is a rare feat in the worst way possible. If anything, it is a miracle he only coughed up the two picks. To his defense, BGSU's offense was so bad that McDonald led the team in rushing with only 41 yards. Neither of the team's two backs earned more than 3.5 yards per carry. Bowling Green need to turn things around next week versus Kent State.
Buffalo vs. Bowling Green Betting Prediction
The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these two teams and has cashed in the last four series meetings in Bowling Green. The under is also 11-5 in the Falcons’ last 16 games as an underdog, is 26-12 in their last 38 games played in the month of November and is 14-5 in their last 19 games overall. The under has also cashed in eight of Bowling Green’s last 10 games after allowing more than 40 points in its previous game. While Buffalo should have no problems scoring tonight, I don’t see how this putrid BGSU offense contributes enough to push the score over the total.
