Kent State vs. Buffalo Betting Trends: Sports insights is reporting that over 82% of the betting public is on Buffalo, which is not surprising considering that the public loves betting the favorites on the early midweek games. It is a bit surprising that the line has shifted form the opener of 3.5 to as low as 3 in some places.
Secondly it’s important to know more about the teams that are playing. It is a big mistake to bet on teams that you know nothing about.
The ESPNU contest marks the 2012 conference opener for both programs, who are each off to a 1-1 start. Despite being in the same division, the Golden Flashes and Bulls will be facing off for the first time since 2009 and the first time at UB Stadium since 2008. Both teams have an early-season home victory over an FCS opponent and a road setback against a Southeastern Conference opponent.
The Golden Flashes (that’s Kent St for those that don’t know) play great in conference. The Golden Flashes have won their last four games against teams currently in the Mid-American Conference and five of their last seven games overall.
The Golden Flashes have a strong leader at the helm. Senior quarterback Spencer Keith made his seventh straight start without throwing an interception and having a signal caller that does not turn over the ball is huge.
They also have some talent in the backfield with junior Dri Archer scored four touchdowns in his first five quarters of play this season, including a career-long, 47-yard run at Kentucky. They also have a turnover prone, ball-hawking defense that gets the ball back for the offense.
Thirdly it’s important to look at some Kent State vs. Buffalo trends. The road team is 4-1-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 7 meetings and the underdog is 4-0-1 ATS In the last five meetings. The Bulls are 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a bye week and they lose this game outright.
Kent State vs. Buffalo Prediction: Kent State +3.5
