USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bulls are 1-0 this season after beating Niagara by a score of 76-66 in their last game. Buffalo trailed at halftime but was able to score 45 points in the second half for the win. Willie Conner led Buffalo with 20 points and 3 rebounds, while Nick Perkins added 11 points and 8 rebounds in this game. Buffalo shot 52.7% on field goals, while shooting 40% on three pointers. Buffalo out rebounded their opponent by a total of 35-33, while adding 20 assists in their win. Buffalo forced 16 turnovers in their win, but also committed 17 turnovers themselves.

Buffalo is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 Monday games. The over is 6-1 in Buffalo’s last 7 Monday games. Xavier is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against the MAC and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The over is 9-2 in Xavier’s last 11 home games.

Xavier comes into this game as a double-digit favorite at home after surviving a scare in their first game of the season. Buffalo won their first game of the season, but better be prepared to a play a much tougher opponent in this one. I like Bluiett and Sumner to have big games and for Xavier to pull away in the second half.
