After a pretty epic hoops weekend, we are now in the calm before the real March storm. Tonight is a very light college hoops card, but we at least have MACtion!

Buffalo is the favorite to win its third MAC Tournament in the past four years. However, Toledo’s outstanding offense and Eastern Michigan’s effective 2-3 zone lurk on other side of the bracket in what should be a very wide-open tourney.


Let’s dive into the bracket to identify any potential sleepers and then finish up with ATS predictions for each of the following first-round matchups tonight:

  • Bowling Green at Central Michigan (-8.5) – 7 p.m. ET on ESPN3
  • Northern Illinois at Kent State (-6.5) – 7 p.m. ET on ESPN3
  • Ohio at Miami Ohio (-3) – 7 p.m. ET on ESPN3
  • Akron at Western Michigan (-8) – 7:45 p.m. ET on ESPN3
