Fearless Predictions Results So Far

SU: 44-16
ATS: 32-26-3
O/U: 25-32-1

Michigan (18-1) at Indiana (12-7)

Game Time: 6:30 ET
TV Network: FS1

Nothing would stop a slide for Indiana like handing Michigan its second loss of the season. The Wolverines lost to Wisconsin and needed a buzzer-beater to get by Minnesota. But the Hoosiers have fallen off the cliff with five straight losses – including a 74-63 defeat in Ann Arbor.

IU isn’t doing anything from three, but the bigger issue against Michigan will be when it comes to making mistakes. For all of the Wolverines’ issues over the last two weeks, they’re still not turning the ball over – IU won’t have a slew of easy points. The Hoosiers will shoot just well enough to stay in the game, but Michigan’s defense will step up when it has to.

Prediction: Michigan 74, Indiana 65
Line: Michigan -3.5, o/u: 133


Buffalo (17-2) at Kent State (15-2)

Game Time: 6:30 ET
TV Network: CBS Sports Network

Buffalo finally played too close to the fire. It was good over the last several games, but it needed a bit too much of a push at times. Northern Illinois rose up and got the Bulls on Tuesday, and now a strong Kent State team – that beat NIU by ten last Saturday – gets its shot.

The Golden Flashes don’t make the mistakes the UB usually lives on, and they’re fantastic at pressuring from the outside and taking the ball away on their own. This should be a dead even game, but the Bulls will get that shot to fall this time around in the final moments.

Prediction: Buffalo 77, Kent State 73
Line: Buffalo -9, o/u: 160.5
