Buffalo was expected to be the best team in the MAC this season and so far there is every reason to believe it. They have been really good.
Eastern Michigan was the consensus next best team but they have struggled so far. Maybe they can use this game as a spring board to better results.
The Bulls have just one loss, at Marquette, and to be honest with just MAC games to go they might not lose again this season.
This team is deep with three players averaging 13ppg or more. At the top is CJ Massinburg at 18ppg. He has been hot shooting the ball all season.
Nick Perkins is a beast at 6’8″ and 250 pounds. His scoring is down a bit this season but not so much to be concerned. EMU has the size to get him in trouble though.
If they are going to lose this seems like a bad spot. First conference, game on the road against a team that had underperformed and has lots of length. One of the Bulls weaknesses.
The Eagles played a tough nonconference slate so it was no surprise that they took some losses – they played both Duke and Kansas.
Perhaps the most concerning outcome was scoring only 36 points against a hardly fearsome Rutgers team. Still the start of conference play gives them a chance for a reset.
Much was made of how James Thompson IV did not grad transfer out. He has seen his number dip across the board though and they need him to pick it up.
The same goes for Paul Jackson, another senior, who has seen his percentages drop (and they weren’t great to begin with). It is hard to pinpoint the source of the struggles too.

Free Buffalo Bulls vs. Eastern Michigan Eagles NCAAB Prediction:
The preseason line for this one would have been a lot different than what we should see which Buffalo by a solid margin.
It might create a value opportunity ON EMU but I don’t see an upset happening here.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: EMU ATS
If you get the Bulls at something lie -7 then that is very playable. Maybe even all the way up to -10. After that there is not a ton of value in this road game.
