Miami (OH) Red Hawks (9-7) at Buffalo Bulls (11-5)

When and Where: Saturday, January 13, Buffalo, New York, 2 P.M. ET

Line: Buffalo -15.5

Total: 149

The Miami Red Hawks are traveling to the Alumni Arena to face the Buffalo Bulls who have been playing very well at the moment and are without a defeat in the conference matches. Miami didn’t have plenty of luck in Buffalo in recent years and is considered as an underdog on this one, while the hosts are fully expected to record another victory and stay at the top of the Mid-American Conference.

The Redhawks are looking for the third win in four games

Miami won two out of the last three matches, including the latest one over Kent State thanks to the fantastic showing in the opening half, which the RedHawks won by 23 points (48-25). Darrian Ringo sparked the 18-0 run in the first half and Miami never trailed in this game, and although the Golden Flashes cut the hosts’ lead to eight points with minute and a half to go, Jack Owens’ side knew how to end the tilt with steady hands from the free-throw line for the 80-69 win. The RedHawks shot 51.8% from the field and hit ten out of 25 attempts from downtown (40%), while they dominated in the assist segment thanks to a great Darrian Ringo, the fourth-best dish-maker in the country.

Nike Sibande led Miami with 17 points, six rebounds, and a couple of steals, while Ringo had 16 points and game-high seven dimes. Their teammates finished the clash in single digits but almost all of them chipped in with points; only Darius Harper was scoreless in five minutes on the floor. Sibande is the team’s top scorer with 13.9 ppg and 4.1 rpg, while Ringo is following him with 10.0 ppg, 8.0 apg, 3.3 rpg, and 2.6 spg. The RedHawks are scoring 73.0 points per contest on average (216th), while they are allowing 69.9 points in return (115th).

The Bulls are hoping to record the fifth consecutive victory

Buffalo is in a good form of four straight wins and is returning home after two matches on the road where they beat Ball State and Akron. The 87-65 victory over the Zips as the Bulls destroyed them by 21 points in the first half (38-17) to secure the third conference win in that many games. Nate Oats’ side got to an early 11-0 run and they never trailed, while Akron failed to cut the lead to under 20 points throughout the entire second half. The Bulls hit just seven triples on 31 attempts (22.6%), but they had 49.3% from the field and dominated in boards (35-27), assists (14-5), steals (9-6), and blocks (5-1).

Jeremy Harris led Buffalo with 17 points, four rebounds, and game-high three thefts; Nick Perkins also scored 17 points with four boards, Montell McRae and Jayvon Graves added 11 points apiece, while CJ Massinburg posted a double-double of ten points and game-high 12 rebounds. CJ Massinburg is the team’s leading scorer with 19.0 ppg, 8.1 rpg, and 1.3 spg; Wes Clark has 17.2 ppg, 5.7 apg, and 1.8 spg, while Nick Perkins averages 15.4 ppg and 6.2 rpg. The Bulls are scoring 83.0 points per contest on average (36th), while they are allowing 77.4 points in return (289th).

Trends:

Miami (OH):

  • 3-5 on the road
  • 4-1 ATS in their last five matches on the road
  • 5-2 ATS in their last seven matches after an ATS win

Buffalo:

  • 7-2 at home
  • 4-0 ATS in their last four matches after a straight-up victory
  • 4-1 ATS in their last five matches in total
  • 5-2 ATS in their last seven games played on Saturday

Buffalo won three out of the last five H2H duels, while they were victorious in four out of the previous five at Alumni Arena, so I consider them to be closer to the victory on this one. Miami won in just two out of ten matches in Buffalo and is 3-7 ATS in the past ten meetings. For those who like to play on points, under is 4-1-1 in the previous six encounters in Buffalo.

The Pick: Buffalo
