Ohio vs. Buffalo Prediction

I’m on Ohio here. Buffalo’s been one of the worst teams in the country this season and that hasn’t really changed over the course of conference play. Ohio hasn’t been the same dominant program out of the MAC that they’ve been in past seasons, but they’re the far better team here and I think they snag the win and cover on the road here. Give me Ohio.
