The Buffalo Bulls have been trying to adjust to 1st-year coach Jim Whitesell which has led to an inconsistent start to the season, but they are still one of the top-scoring teams in college basketball. The Bulls are averaging 79.6 PPG, and they have an abundance of guys who can make a difference on any given night as 4 different players are averaging at least 10 PPG. The Ohio Bobcats have struggled on the defensive side of the court through their 3 conference games as they are allowing an average of 76 PPG, and that could cause problems for them on the road. I believe Buffalo has the best player on the court with junior guard Jayvon Graves as he is averaging 17.2 PPG and 5.4 RPG, and he should take advantage of a shaky Ohio defense. Final Score Prediction, Buffalo Bulls win and cover ATS 78-69.
