The Buffalo Bulls (18-9, CONF 9-5) and Ohio Bobcats (13-14, CONF 5-9) face off in a MAC showdown at The Convocation Center. Buffalo knocked off Ohio 76-73 earlier in the middle of January.
Buffalo looks like they are getting hot at the right time, and coming into this game they have won four games in a row. In Buffalo’s last game game against Kent State it took overtime but they were able to get the job done on the road.
Away from home this season, Buffalo is averaging 79.2 points per game, but their defense hasn’t been great giving up 77.4 points.
Guard Jayvon Graves is the star of Buffalo averaging 17.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. Graves is shooting 42.9 percent from the floor and 36.5 percent from deep.
Ohio can move back to .500 with a win in this game, but it’s going to quite the test to get that done. At home this season Ohio has a 9-5 record and the biggest reason has been the offense that is averaging 74.6 points per game.
Guard Jason Preston is the Bobcats best player averaging 16.2 points, 7.4 assists, and 6.5 rebounds per game. Preston has scored at least 15 points in each of the last five games. As good as Preston has been, Ohio also needs other players on the team to step up, or they won't get back to the .500 mark.
The under is 7-1 in Buffalo’s last eight overall. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between Buffalo and Ohio. The underdog is 14-6-2 against the spread in the last 22 meetings played between Ohio and Buffalo.
If you like scoring, much sure to tune into this game because there is going to be plenty of scoring by both teams. Look for both teams to get to at least 75 points, and that will lead to the over being cashed.It wouldn't be shocking to see both of these teams to finish with over 80 points. Either way this game is going to clear the over with the ease.
