Juwan Howard and the Michigan Wolverines are set to get their 2021-22 college basketball campaign started tonight when they take on the Buffalo Bulls.

The No. 6 ranked team in the country has a lot of hype behind them heading into the season, and both myself and Reed Wallach have high hopes for them. I placed them near the top of my preseason power rankings, and Reed singled them out as one of his best bets to win the National Championship.

Hunter Dickinson decided to come back to the Wolverines for another season, which immediately made them championship contenders. We'll if they can start their year off with a statement win over a feisty Buffalo team.

Here are the odds for the game, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.

Buffalo vs. Michigan Spread, Odds, and Total


  • Buffalo: +13 (-115)
  • Michigan: -13 (-105)


  • Buffalo: +600
  • Michigan: -900


  • 152 (Over -110/Under -110)

Buffalo vs. Michigan Prediction and Pick

Back the Wolverines until further notice. With Hunter Dickinson and Eli Brooks back in the mix, they should be a force to be reckoned with. Not to mention DeVante' Jones, who transferred from Coastal Carolina after winning Sun Belt Player of the Year.

Buffalo certainly isn't a bad team by any stretch of the imagination. Jeenathan Williams and Josh Mballa will lead the squad as senior forwards, but they're a far stretch away from being a national contender like Michigan.

Dickinson should be able to do his part in slowing down Williams and Mballa, and the Wolverines' offensive prowess should be able to do the rest. It's time for Michigan to announce their presence to the college basketball world.
