Toledo vs. Buffalo Football Prediction and PreviewOur college football experts predict, pick and preview the Toledo Rockets vs. Buffalo Bulls game, with kickoff time, TV channel and spread. https://athlonsports.com/college-football/toledo-rockets-vs-buffalo-bulls-prediction-preview-2019
The Buffalo line opened at 6.5 but was quickly bet up 8.5.
Last week Toledo lost to Northern Illinois last week and NIU looked awful last night against Eastern Michigan. And Buffalo blew a three-touchdown lead to lose late against Kent State. But I think the late collapse (and loss) to Kent State last game has devalued Buffalo in the eyes of Vegas....hence the -8.5 and not -10+.
Toledo statistically owns the 13th best run game in the country but Buffalo is ranked and impressive #5 in run defense. I think Toledo runs into a wall here tonight against the Bulls #5 defense.
The Under 54.5 is worth a look too - we've got two run first teams and again, the Bulls have a run stopping defense.
The Kent State game is a big of a concern for Buffalo bettors, as Buffalo somehow lost to Kent while Toledo beat Kent. But I still think Buffalo is the superior team should win this game by double digits.
I think this is going to be good game, both of them have an amazing rush offense, Buffalo also have a tough run defense. I think buffalo wins but dont cover. I just like the points with Toledo, but wait until game time because the line might get higher so you could get a better number with Toledo.
Toledo's pretty good at putting points up at home but when it comes to road games in the MAC they've flopped scoring 14 and 7 on those two occasions. They also have a problem stopping other teams from scoring. After last weeks catastrophic meltdown against Kent State I think Buffalo is going to come out with their heads on fire and cause real problems for the Rockets. With Buffalo scoring a good amount of points their last few times out and being at home I think they get it done and actually hold on to this one for the cover.
