St. Bonaventure is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home games, 1-6 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 2-6 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. Buffalo is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight road games, 11-2 against the spread against the A-10, and 20-7 against the spread in their last 27 games.
This one should be tight and I look for Buffalo to get the cover on the road.
