Staff Prediction

Buffalo should have no problem against this lousy Zips defense. The Bulls defensive strength is their secondary which should also play to their advantage as the Zips to not showcase much of a run game. On offense, Akron averaged just 21.7 PPG. Buffalo is playing for one more game so I expect them to blowout Akron.

Pick: Buffalo -11.5
