The Kent State Golden Flashes are a tough team to figure out, as they scratch out wins here and there, but nothing is consistent. Kent State is horrible defensively, ranked 114th in total defense and 96th in scoring defense. The Buffalo Bulls have had a couple of weeks to rest up and prepare, given that their meeting against Akron was postponed. Buffalo is decent enough offensively and is slightly more trustworthy on defense. The Bulls should win this game at home. I’ll lay the small number.
