Score: 72 - 65
Point Spread: -4/-110 Buffalo
Today's winner is Buffalo over Toledo. This is my MAC Game of the Month.
It seems the MAC East is having their way with the MAC West this season. The Bulls are red-hot, winning and covering 5 straight, by an average of 12.6 PPG. In their current 5 game win streak, Buffalo is shooting "lights-out", hitting 52% from beyond the arc, averaging 9 triples per game. McCrea, Watt, and Filzen are teaming up for 43.6 PPG, 17.8 RPG, tallied 104 assists, 49 steals, and 72 blocks. The Buffalo front court of 6'10" Watt, 6'7" Robinson, and 6'7" McCrea dwarfs their Toledo undersized counterparts. The Rockets don't have a starter taller than Matt Smith who lists as 6'7". Toledo will get manhandled down low in this matchup. They rank 136th in FG%. The team has dropped 11 of their L15 SU, failing to cover their L2, being blown-out by 16 and 14 points. Buffalo has taken the L4 meetings over Toledo by a combined 60 points. The Bulls are 5-0-1 ATS their L6 games played overall, 5-0-1 ATS their L6 games vs. the MAC, and 4-0 ATS their L4 games following a SU win. Take Buffalo. Thank you.
