The Central Michigan Chippewas take the floor with the Buffalo Bulls in the MAC college basketball semifinals.

Central Michigan Chippewas are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win and are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall and are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 vs. Mid-American.Buffalo Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Mid-American.

Favorite is 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings and over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and Central Michigan Chippewas are 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

It's obvious Buffalo will win the conference tournament easily if they play as capable. I really have no interest in taking or giving the points...

Pick:
Central Michigan +12.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
