The red hot Buffalo Bulls are looking to shock again Saturday versus a number 5 Kentucky team that is not among the greatest that have been part of this program in modern times.  The Bulls pay $20 for every $10 bet on the money line and are a +5.5 underdog Against The Spread.

The Wildcats just squeaked by Davidson with a final score of 78-73.  Fifth-seeded Kentucky all but ignored the arc Thursday night and failed to make a 3 for the first time in nearly 30 years.  The 0-for-6 effort snapped the program’s nation-best streak of 1,047 games with a 3 that began Nov. 26, 1988.

Kevin Knox led the Wildcats (25-10) with 25 points, as they pulled away after 12th-seeded Davidson (21-12) tied things at 54 with 8:01 remaining.

Number 13-seed Buffalo didn't just win against Arizona.  Much like another big underdog UMBC did Friday night against number one seed Virginia, the Bulls destroyed their favored opponent.

Heading into this week's Big Dance, Gambling911.com believed Buffalo was among the strongest of the potential Cinderella teams playing in the tournament.

Junior guard C.J. Massinburg and junior forward Nick Perkins had been averaging at least 16 points per game, plus they have an all-MAC second-teamer in 6-foot-7 junior wing (Jeremy Harris) who led all MAC players during conference play by draining 46.3 percent of his 108 three-point attempts.  The Bulls make 9.6 threes a game, the 31st most in the NCAA.

All the ingredients are in place for this Bulls team to excel over a Wildcats squad that has had some success covering the current spread over their last ten, though they were unable to win by more than five points in their last two victories.  Kentucky has, however, covered the posted spread in eight of their last ten.  They are clicking at just the right time.

For Buffalo, this city is no longer just about the Bills and the Sabres.

“People were running outside with their shirts off. It was snowing. People were just going crazy. It’s insane,” UB Student Athlete, Max Michel said of the excitement surrounding the Bulls.

Buffalo would pay $150,000 on a $100 bet if they were to somehow go onto win the Championship.
