Free NCAA Pick Wednesday

#651 Canisius +9 over Buffalo 6:00 PM CT

Buffalo has been a force with 59 wins the past two season combined and two NCAA Tournament wins. Last year’s team lost three senior starters however in addition to head coach Nate Oats who is leading Alabama. Under Jim Whitesell the Bulls are 6-4 but with some inconsistency including a win over DePaul but a 13-point home loss over Army in the past two games. The tempo is ultra-fast but this year’s team has lousy shooting numbers, especially from the 3-point arc and the free throw line.

Canisius lost by 15 hosting Buffalo last season and this year’s has rallied to 5-4 after starting 0-2. Wins over Bucknell, St. Bonaventure, and Illinois-Chicago stand out while three of four losses have been single-digit results. This is a great interior scoring team and a defense that excels at defending the 3-point shot and creating turnovers, which could play well in a high-possession game against Buffalo’s pace given a total in the 150s.

Nelly’s has won seven consecutive rated picks in college basketball. We went 2-0 last night and our service plays are 6-0 since Saturday! Don’t miss tonight’s 2-for-1 offer as we add to an already big December coming off a 29-11 December in 2018!

Free NCAA Pick Friday

#124 Buffalo +6.5 over Ohio 12:00 PM CT

The Bulls have won back-to-back games to reach 5-6 with a bowl bid possible with a win in this finale. Ohio is a formidable team but this is a tough spot for the Bobcats as they surrendered the top spot in the MAC East with last week’s loss to Akron and then watched the Zips lock up the division title Tuesday night. Ohio won 34-10 last season but Buffalo won in a blowout two years ago in the last home meeting.

Much more is at stake for the Bulls at home while a demoralized Bobcats team could arrive in chilly Buffalo where the Bulls are 18-10 ATS at home since 2013. The host has won seven in a row in this series and the yardage in last season’s game was nearly even with the Bulls out-rushing Ohio 156-105. Both teams defend the run effectively and the yards-per-play numbers are nearly identical despite Ohio being given road favorite status.

Ohio was -15 net yards in the three road wins they have with those wins all coming against losing teams and it has been over a month since Ohio won a road game. Buffalo beat Florida Atlantic at home in September and the home losses this season came by one-point against Northern Illinois and in multiple overtimes against Western Michigan with both of those teams rating stronger than Ohio.
