The Ohio Bobcats (9-7) will travel to Buffalo, New York to take on the Buffalo Bulls (10-6). Ohio has started conference play 1-2 after losses to Western Michigan and Bowling Green and a win against Eastern Michigan. Ohio forward Ben Vander Plas scored 25 points on 10 of 15 from the field along with eight rebounds but it wasn’t enough to overcome a 50-point second-half from Bowling Green. Ohio uses three key players on offense including Jason Preston, who averages 15.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 7.6 assists per game. Preston, Jordan Dartis, and Vander Plas average about 45 points per game while as a team, Ohio averages 71.6 points per game. Buffalo snapped a two-game losing streak in conference play to defeat Miami Ohio, 83-78.

Buffalo guard, Jayvon Graves scored 25 points in the win as Josh Mballa tallied 13 rebounds in the win. Buffalo trailed by seven at the half but stormed back for 47 points in the second half to get the win.

Ohio’s Preston is doing it all

Ohio is averaging 71.6 points per game but allowing 68.4 points against on the year. The Bobcats are shooting 45.6 percent from the floor and rebound 34.8 times per game. Ohio is what Jason Preston is. Preston has played all 16 games this season with an average of 37.4 minutes per game and averages a team-high in points, assists, and steals.

If Buffalo can contain Preston and force him into making bad mistakes or committing fouls, Buffalo will be on its way to a victory. Preston handles the ball the most and averages four turnovers per game this season, which also leads the team.

Buffalo looks to build off Friday’s win

Buffalo is averaging 79.6 points per game but allowing teams to score 76.9 points per game. The Bulls shoot 44 percent from the field but bring down a total of 41.5 rebounds per game. In the win against Miami Ohio, Buffalo reeled in 43 rebounds which helped propel the Bulls to victory.

Although the Bulls allow more points offensively, they are still the better defensive team when it comes to takeaways, thanks to extra possessions from Buffalo’s faster pace of play.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This battle comes down to pace of play and rebounding. Buffalo will dictate the pace and play faster, forcing Ohio to take rushed shots and turn the ball over more than their average. With rushed shots, come missed shots and Buffalo is far and beyond the better rebounding team. Ohio brought down 31 rebounds in their loss to Bowling Green last time out while Buffalo brought down 43 rebounds in their win. Buffalo has strengths inside and will use them against Ohio.

Prediction: Buffalo -6.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This game will be a fast paced game, just how Buffalo likes it. While Ohio will struggle to make many of their shots, there will still be enough possessions in this game to allow Ohio the opportunity to score enough points to push this game over. Bowling Green shot 50 percent against Ohio last time out. Buffalo will enjoy high quality shooting in their home building. Ohio went 12-16 from the line their last time out while Buffalo averages a ton of free throw attempts on a regular basis. Buffalo and Ohio are both 1-2 on the year in conference play. Both teams want this game to peak up the standings a little.

Prediction: Over 152
