NCAA football betting has not gone well with the Buffalo Bulls this year as they have had a steep fall with the college football odds after winning the MAC title last year. Buffalo has a NCAA football betting record of 3-6 straight up and 4-5 with the college football odds.
The Bulls are coming off one of their toughest NCAA football betting losses of the season last week on Tuesday night football as they were beaten in the final seconds by Bowling Green 29-30 as 3-point favorites with the college football odds.
Buffalo now has the tough NCAA football betting task of having to run the table to make a bowl game. Buffalo had a 29-16 4th quarter lead over Bowling Green before a stunning NCAA football betting collapse. After rolling up 21 points and 301 yards in the first half the Bulls were held in check with just 8 points and 109 yards.
Beyond that the Bulls allowed 2 blocked punts in the game. Coach Turner Gill knows that is not a recipe for NCAA football betting success. “Offensively, you have to get some points in the second half,” said Gill. “Special teams hurt us. Just some simple things where we didn’t execute what we were told to do on the football field. That cost us to have two blocked punts.”
The Ohio Bobcats are one of the top special teams units in all of NCAA football betting with 4 blocked punts and 2 touchdown punt returns along with a redshirt freshman kicker, Matt Weller, that is 15-20 on field goals.
Ohio has a NCAA football betting record of 6-3 straight up and 5-4 against the spread. The Bobcats are coming off a 20-17 win at Ball State in which they failed to cover the NCAA football betting board as 5.5-point favorites.
Buffalo has covered the NCAA football betting line in 6 out of their last 9 games against Ohio including the last 2 consecutive meetings. The Bulls beat Ohio last year 32-19 as 1.5-point road dogs.
