(877) Buffalo vs. Toledo (878)
PICK: pinnacle @ 2.5 TOL (-108)
DATE: February 15, 2019 - 7:00 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Will Rogers
EVALUATION: Loss (-1080) - Final Score BUFF 88 at TOL 82
The set-up: Both teams are red hot, but I don’t think that the home floor advantage can be overlooked as a very real deciding factor in this particular matchup. Buffalo enters at 21-3 and on two straight victories, while Toledo is 20-4 and in the midst of a five-game win skein. This however is a “revenge” game for Toledo after it was smoked 110-80 at Buffalo back on January 8th. The Rockets have played exceptionally since that setback and with a chance to avenge that pathetic effort, I do indeed expect the home side to step up and answer the call. From a situational stand point, this one definitely sets up well for the home side in my opinion.
The pick: Take it for what you will as well but Toledo is 7-2 ATS In its last nine at home, while Buffalo is just 1-4 ATS in its last five on the road. For all the reasons listed above, grab the points.
