The Ohio Bobcats and the Buffalo Bulls meet in college basketball action form UB Alumni Arena on Tuesday.
Ohio enters this one at 9-7 so far. The Bobcats are 1-3 in their last four games, beating Eastern Michigan while otherwise falling to Campbell, Western Michigan and Bowling Green in that time.
In the loss to the Falcons, Ohio’s Ben Vander Plas led the way on 25 points with eight rebounds. Jason Preston managed 15 points and five assists there, and Jordan Dartis chipped in 12 points with two boards.
Over on the Bulls’ side, they’re 10-6 so far. Following consecutive losses versus Northern Illinois and Ball State, Buffalo managed a win 83-78 versus Miami-OH in their last game.
In the win over the RedHawks, Buffalo’s Jayvon Graves put up 25 points with three rebounds and three assists. Davonta Jordan (13 points; 10 rebounds; five assists) and Josh Mballa (12 points; 13 rebounds) each doubled up in that one as well.
The over is 6-1-1 in the Bulls’ last eight home games and 5-1-1 in their last seven overall. Buffalo is 0-4 ATS in their last four Tuesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last six after an ATS win.
Meanwhile, the Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in their last five Tuesday games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 after an ATS loss. Ohio is 7-20 ATS in their last 27 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six overall.
Ohio was getting a little choppy offensively there for a few games, with just 51 points versus Purdue and 55 versus Campbell, but they’ve put up 74 points in each of their last two outings. They’re still just 1-1 in that time, though.
As for Buffalo, they’ve been pretty consistent on the offensive end, though they’ve had a few lapses defensively. That said, I still like the Bulls on the cover here.
