Liberty vs. Buffalo Line Movement
4* Free Week 3 NCAA Betting Prediction: Liberty -3.5
My money is on Liberty to cover the spread at -3.5 for this matchup. Liberty had a solid performance in their last game, especially in the running game against New Mexico State.
It’s quite surprising to witness such a strong beginning for Liberty. Their offense showcased an impressive performance against New Mexico State, and it appears they’re set to maintain that momentum in their upcoming game against Buffalo.
I believe they’ll maintain that form this week, so I’m betting on Liberty to cover before kickoff.
I’m leaning heavily towards betting on the under, as our statistical model predicts that Liberty and Buffalo will only produce a combined total of 52 points.
