The Bobcats are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Bulls are 36-16-2 ATS in their last 54 home games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Bobcats last 7 games as an underdog. The under is 4-1 in Bulls last 5 home games. The Bobcats are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Buffalo. The home team is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams, especially in the favorite role. However, Ohio is one of the worst teams in the country offensively and can't stop the run defensively. The Buffalo Bulls have their issues on defense as well, but the offense has potential and is 27th in rushing offense. Buffalo is the better team here and needs this game in the worst way. If forced to pick, I'll take Buffalo and the somewhat reasonable line.
