TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST
#604 BUFFALO (-11′) over Central Michigan at 7 PM EST
On a dismal 0-3 SU and ATS run and locked into a same season revenge mode, Buffalo will get after it when Central Michigan visits on Tuesday evening. The Chippewas stumble into Alumni Arena off a 17-point home loss to the Bobcats and head coach Tony Barbee and his boys are going to get spanked again here.
Back on January 14th, the Bulls (-5′) traveled to Mount Pleasant and got rocked 87-78. Counting that blemish, UB still owns a dominant 12-1 SU and 7-4-2 ATS record in the last 13 meetings. Equally impressive, at home hitting the hardwood without confidence off a straight up loss, head coach Jim Whitesell and his players hold a lucrative 31-13 SU and 29-15 ATS mark provided their opponent arrives off a SU and ATS loss. In this situation fighting a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage of .500 or less, Buffalo improves to a solid 26-6 SU and 25-7 ATS including an elite 23-1 SU and 21-3 ATS provided it is priced as a favorite of -1.5 or more.
Holding a poor 25-66 SU (38-45-3 ATS) tally in its last 91 games, Central Michigan has obviously experienced a number of issues on the court lately. In this run facing a foe that played in a true road game last, the Chippewas have been at their financial worst inking a stiff 6-30 SU and 9-22-3 ATS mark. Also, when going into revenge, CMU has hit rock bottom notching a pitiful 4-17 SU and 6-15 ATS record in its last 21 tries including a horrible 1-11 SU and 2-10 ATS provided its opponent enters without confidence off a straight up loss. Finally, as a guest fighting a foe that enters off a straight up loss, the Chips hold a rough 31-88 SU and 39-65-7 ATS mark including a disturbing 21-40 SU and 17-36-2 ATS provided their opponent holds a team won/loss percentage less than .500.
You have to go all the way back to the 2002-03 season to find the last time the Bulls lost four straight conference games. Rest assured; Coach Whitesell will have his kids ready to go in this revenge situation. Take Buffalo. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
