Ohio vs. Buffalo Prediction and Pick

Buffalo is one of the highest-scoring offenses in the country, averaging 77.9 points per game, ranking 28th. They’re even more impressive at home. In their home stadium, Buffalo averages 82.8 points per game. They aren’t the most efficient team in the country with the 66th-ranked adjusted offensive efficiency, but they are fast. Their pace is the 24th-fastest. 

The Bulls also clean up on the glass, averaging 40.7 rebounds per game, 10th-best. However, for a team that rebounds so well, they do give up a ton of points — Buffalo allows their opponents to score 74.9 points per game, which ranks way down at 291st. They allow an effective field goal percentage of 48.3%. Opposing teams can score on them, and they have to in order to keep up.

Ohio can score, but not quite like Buffalo can. They average a respectable 73.1 points per game, and are kinda just in the middle of the pack in pretty much everything. Effective field goal percentage ranks 151st, field goals attempted per game ranks 110th, three pointers made per game 63rd — they do everything decently well, but nothing greatly. 

Buffalo is 8-1 straight up in their last 9 home games, and with how many points they rack up in their home arena, I’m betting that that trend continues tonight.

Pick: Buffalo -3.0 (-105)
