College Football Betting Preview: Buffalo Bulls vs. E. Michigan Eagles

November 21, 2023

Two MAC teams will face each other on Tuesday evening in week 12 of the college football season when the Eastern Michigan Eagles travel to Buffalo, New York to face the Buffalo Bulls at UB Stadium with the game scheduled to start at 7:30 PM ET and will air on ESPN2. 

This is the last chance the Eastern Michigan Eagles have to become bowl eligible this season as they enter this game with a record of 5-6, a win they will have six wins which is the requirement to make a bowl game, and with a loss they finish with a losing record for the first time in three seasons. The Eagles ended their three-game losing streak with a double-overtime win at home against the Akron Zips last week by a score of 30-27 and Samson Evans was one of the main reasons for the win as he ran for three touchdowns and 71 yards against Akron. The 30 points were the most points scored since week 1 by the Eastern Michigan Eagles.

Buffalo will not make a bowl game this season after making a bowl game last year as they enter this game with a record of 3-8 and have a record of 3-4 in the MAC which puts them in 4th place in the East Division in the MAC Conference. The Bulls have also lost their last three games including a 10-23 loss on the road against the Miami Ohio RedHawks last week. Their offense has struggled during their losing streak as they are averaging 11 points per game during the current losing streak. However, the offense has been a disappointment for the Buffalo Bulls this season as they are only averaging 21.82 points per game and will be hosting one of the better teams in the conference, the Eastern Michigan Eagles, on Tuesday night and will be looking to not end the season on a four-game losing streak.

BookMaker has the Buffalo Bulls listed as 6.5-point favorites at home against the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Tuesday night in week 13 of the college football season. Eastern Michigan has won six of the last ten, however, Buffalo has won three in a row against the Eagles. The teams are 5-5 ATS in the last ten while the Bulls are 3-0 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Eastern Michigan Eagles are 5-5-1 ATS overall, 3-2 ATS on the road, 3-3 ATS as an underdog, and 4-2-1 ATS in conference games this season while the Buffalo Bulls are 5-6 ATS overall, 1-4 ATS at home, 2-2-1 ATS as a favorite, and 3-4 ATS in conference games on the year.

Eastern Michigan enters this game with a better record this season, however, they have lost three straight games in the series against Buffalo while the Bulls are 3-0 ATS in the last three games in the series. I look for the Bulls to avoid losing their 4th game in a row this season with a win and cover against the Eagles on Tuesday night which is why I am buying the .5 point and laying the points with the Buffalo Bulls when they host the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Tuesday night.
