Buffalo Bulls vs Akron Zips 3/10/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Buffalo Bulls will go against the Akron Zips in a Mid-American Conference Quarterfinal clash in Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, Cleveland, OH, Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 1:30 PM (EST).

 

Buffalo had a hit-or-miss season in 2021-22, culminated by a two-game losing streak after a nine-game winning run when they were defeated by Kent State on the road on Friday.

 

The Bulls come into this one with a 19-13 overall record and a 13-6 MAC record, looking to regain some of the magic that propelled them to repeated NCAA Tournament appearances in previous years.

 

Buffalo led 11-6 early against Kent State but gave up a 10-0 run to go down 16-11 and never recovered. The Bulls were behind by eight points at halftime and by ten points many times in the second half.

 

With 3:54 remaining, they trimmed the advantage to one point at 62-61, only to be held to two points for the next 3:40 before hitting a meaningless bucket to narrow the final margin.

 

In the defeat, Buffalo shot 45 percent from the floor, including seven of 25 from the three-point range, and committed 17 turnovers. In a losing effort, Jeenathan Williams topped the Bulls with 18 points.

 

  • The University of Buffalo Bulls is 8-2 SU in their last 10 matches against Akron.
  • Buffalo is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 matches this season.
  • The Bulls are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 matches in the Mid-American Conference.

Buffalo Bulls vs Akron Zips Predictions 3/10/2022

 

Akron finished the season with a five-game winning streak, edging Central Michigan in the regular-season finale at home. On the year, the Zips are 21-9 overall and 14-6 in the MAC. Akron scored the game’s first six points against Central Michigan but trailed by three at halftime.

 

The Zips went on a 14-5 run in the second half to take a six-point lead, only to lose it with 3:24 remaining. Akron came back to win the match with a 9-2 run that was completed by two Greg Tribble free throws with 32 seconds left.

 

With 10 seconds left, Tribble had a steal and an opportunity to increase the advantage, but he missed a pair of free throws. To win the game, the Zips had to survive a missed layup in the final seconds.

 

Akron won by shooting 38 percent from the field, including six of 22 from the three-point range, and by making nine of 22 free throws. In the victory, Xavier Castaneda led the Zips with 17 points and seven rebounds.

 

  • The University of Akron Zips is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • Akron is 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches in the Mid-American Conference.
  • The Zips are 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches this season.

Buffalo Bulls vs Akron Zips. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Buffalo Bulls. This game will be a battle of styles, as Buffalo prefers to run and gun while Akron excels on defense. Each side has a quartet of capable scorers to choose from, but they both suffer at the charity stripe.

 

Buffalo’s biggest edge in this game is their ability to crash the glass and cause havoc, especially on offense, where Mballa and Skogman can’t be disregarded. Having said that, Akron is a very strong defensive team, and they won the rebounding battle 35-26 in the first matchup.

 

It’s worth noting, though, that neither Mballa nor Fagan played in that game, indicating that Buffalo will have a deeper rotation for this matchup. Mballa’s return is a huge boost for Buffalo, and it benefits them on both ends of the field. The Bulls should be able to eke out a win and progress in this game. The Buffalo Bulls will win to a predicted score of 73-69.
