This line has already dropped from 62 down to 59, so if you are going to bet it, do so quickly. It’s dropping for a reason. Cincinnati is known as a great offensive team, as they have finished each of the last 5 seasons averaging over 32 ppg. They aren’t the same offensive team in 2016, as they don’t have the experience or talent at wide receiver to run their pass-happy attack. The Bearcats lost their top 6 pass catchers from 2015. Head coach Tommy Tuberville has came out and said they are going to run a more possession based attack this year. The offense certainly didn’t look great in the opener, as they only scored 28 points against Tennessee-Martin. That’s the same Tennessee-Martin team that gave up 76 to Ole Miss and 63 to Arkansas last year and 59 to Kentucky and 45 to Mississippi State the year before. I don’t think it was just a bad game for the Cincinnati offense in the opener. The defense is improved and while Purdue scored 45 in their opener, they are not going to be a great offensive team. I think this is going to be a defensive battle that comes no where close to the 60 points needed for this to go over the total. Cash the UNDER 59 on Saturday!

I’m recommending a play on South Florida plus the big number over Cincinnati. The Bulls have been “money” as a double digit underdog this season, cashing seven of eight times. While they’re not at full strength, that fact has been baked into the line as far as we’re concerned, with the spread hovering just short of 20 at the time of this post. South Florida plays well on the defensive end where they rank 44th in FG percentage allowed (40%) and 25th defending the 3-point line (30.5%). When you play that well on the defensive end, you’re a tough team to beat by such a big margin, which is why this team has fattened bankrolls when getting double digits. One of those double digit covers came in January in a 54-51 home loss against the Bearcats. The Bulls frustrated Cincy all night long, holding them to 30.9% FG shooting, including 27.8% from behind the arc. Cincy is not bad, but nothing special on the offensive end and they’re off a one-point win at UConn, with a game at Memphis coming up in just two days. It’s much easier getting the competitive juices flowing against UConn & Memphis than it is against the 5-18 Bulls. And besides the 7-1 ATS run mentioned above, South Florida is on a 5-0 ATS run against teams playing better than .600 basketball, while Cincinnati enters on a 1-6 ATS slide against teams playing lower than .400 basketball. I’m recommending a play on South Florida plus the points on Thursday. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
