Northern Illinois is looking to move up in the standing but in the MAC but it is going to be tough on the road.
By most measures Buffalo is the top team in the MAC this season. Not really a surprise and they should defend their home court.
Northern Illinois Huskies
The Huskies are off to a simple start in MAC play. Two home wins and covers, two road losses and noncovers. They might repeat that pattern all season long.
Eugene German is the top scorer in the conference at just about 20ppg. The speedy guard has really blossomed as a sophomore.
Lacey James, who transferred from Rider give the Huskies some size but a lot of times they are basically playing with five guards.
Dante Thorpe is one of the best frosh in the league, he is third in scoring and makes 41% of his three. His future in the MAC is bright.
The Bulls are having a good season. They are not going to win the title but if you are into KenPom ratings they are ahead profile programs like Indiana and UNLV so far.
Buffalo has the second leading scorer in the MAC in CJ Massinburg, who also leads the team in rebounding at just 6’3″. He is probably the player of the year.
This is a team that also plays with a mostly guard lineup. However, their big, Nick Perkins can score. So they probably win the battle in the paint.
Buffalo likes to play at a better pace than most teams in the MAC. They likely have a better roster and thus creating more possessions is to their advantage generally.

Free Northern Illinois Huskies vs. Buffalo Bulls NCAAB Prediction:
The Bulls will win but if they are no at their sharpest covering could be a stretch. Don’t overreact to last years 65-45 win over NIU.
Buffalo is just 2-2 ATS this season at home and has a big road game at Western Michigan later in the week. They will be content to just win.
