PICK: I’m probably going to take a stab on Buffalo. The Bulls have had a few shaky outings this year against better teams—the only real blowouts were versus James Madison and UConn, though. Otherwise Buffalo has been fairly competitive. The Bulls should be able to hang a pretty solid points total on Canisius as well: the Griffins have given up 79 or more points in three of their five games so far. If Buffalo can get their offense going early here I think they’ll be fine.
