Canisius Golden Griffins at Buffalo Bulls Prediction

There is a lot of appeal in backing the Golden Griffins here be that they shocked the Bulls last year on their own court. However, some argue that the Bulls won’t get caught napping again. Buffalo is on a mission this year to get back to the MAC Championship and take back what it feels was rightfully theirs until Kent State shocked the conference. However, they must first get past a team that has had their number. While Buffalo has their eyes on greener pastures, it is likely that Canisius is focused strictly on this game. Thus, there is a chance that the Bulls will bite the bullet yet again. Canisius has plenty of breathing room to come in under this number but they likely won’t need them.
