Buffalo Gets the Win
Buffalo comes in at -8.5. The Bulls have been ranked all season long and are just a class above all the other teams in their conference. They have been solid on the road and should put up a ton of points against this Miami OH team that doesn’t play incredible defense. Also, the Redhawks have not been incredible on offense this year and could have trouble scoring on the Bulls. Buffalo should get out to a fast start in this one en route to a double-digit victory. Take Buffalo -8.5.
