The Miami (OH) RedHawks could use a win after splitting their last eight games. The Miami (OH) RedHawks are averaging 71 points on 42.4 percent shooting and allowing 70.6 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Nike Sibande is averaging 15.5 points and 1.2 assists while Dalonte Brown is averaging 12.1 points and 5.4 rebounds. Jalen Adaway is grabbing five rebounds and Bam Bowman is grabbing 5.1 rebounds.

The Bulls are 19-9-1 ATS in their last 29 games following a straight up win and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Friday games. The Red Hawks are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Mid-American and 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The home team is 5-0-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the over is 13-4 in the last 17 meetings in Miami (OH). The over is 4-1 in Red Hawks last 5 overall. The over is 34-16-2 in Bulls last 52 road games.

The Buffalo Bulls beat the Redhawks by 24 points earlier this season and enter this contest outscoring teams by an average of 19 points in their last five games while shooting 46.9 percent from the field. Buffalo is also winning games on the road by an average of 6.2 points and are a solid 9-5-1 ATS on the road. The Miami (OH) RedHawks are hit or miss, and while they're winning at home by an average of 7.6 points, they don't have the consistent offensive firepower to keep up with Buffalo when it plays to its potential. We saw this in the first meeting, and that was with the Bulls shooting just 41.5 percent from the field. Buffalo wins by an average of 15.9 points when a favorite. I have to eat the chalk. 

Buffalo -9.5
