Miami Florida vs. Cincinnati Over-Under Pick from Steve Janus: October 11th 2014

Steve Janus - College Football PickMiami Florida Hurricanes vs. Cincinnati Bearcats
Football Betting Pick: Over 57.5 points (October 11th 2014)

I think we are catching a favorable total here due to both of these teams coming off a bad offensive performance last week. Cincinnati scored just 14 points at home to Memphis and Cincinnati managed just 17 points at Georgia Tech. I look for both teams to get back on track and have this game flying over the total.

Those that have watched Cincinnati this season, are well aware of how bad they are defensively. The Bearcats actually rank 144th against both the run (255.3 ypg) and the pass (306.5 ypg). This should have Miami scoring at will and should lead to a lot of quick scores.

The Hurricanes have a lot better defensive numbers and there could be some concern with them ranking 6th in the country against the pass but a lot of that is due to who they have played. Four of their six opponents have attempted 40+ rush attempts against them. Even with starting quarterback Gunner Kiel not expected to play, I still think this Bearcats’ offense has a lot of explosive players, plus they have an experienced backup in Munchie Legaux, who has 13 career starts.

It’s also worth noting that these two teams haven’t played each other since 1998 so neither team is going to be familiar with the opposing offense, which is a big disadvantage for the two defenses. BET THE OVER 57.5!

Cincinnati vs. Ohio State Football Betting Pick from Jesse Schule: September 27th 2014

Jesse Schule - College Football PickCincinnati Bearcats vs. Ohio State Buckeyes
Betting Pick: Cincy +17.5 (September 27th 2014)

It didn’t take long for the public to jump back on the Ohio State bandwagon. After the Buckeyes failed to impress against Navy in their opener, they lost outright to Virginia Tech following week. But a 66-0 blowout win over Kent State has bettors backing the Buckeyes once again. They opened as a -13 point favorite at home versus Cincinnati, which would be a fair number in my opinion. Public money has since pushed the line up to -17.5, and I think that’s asking too much of a Buckeyes team that isn’t as strong as it was last year.

Cincinnati is undefeated, with wins over Toledo and Miami (OH). Sophomore QB Gunner Kiel has burst onto the scene throwing for 689 yards and 10 TDs in the first two starts of his college football career. He’s face an OSU defense that surrendered 52 points against Navy and VT in it’s first two games of the season.

Cincy’s senior RB Hosey Williams is averaging six yards per carry through the first two games of the season, and he ran for over 100 yards in the win over the Rockets. He may be able to find some holes in a Buckeyes defense that surrendered 495 yards on the ground in it’s first two games.

The Bearcats won nine games last year, and they only faced one ranked opponent. They lost in overtime by a score of 31-24 to the Louisville Cardinals. Cincinnati is 2-4 against Top 25 teams dating back to 2009, but the average margin of defeat in those four losses is less than five points.

I expect to see a competitive game here in Columbus tonight.

Jack Jones Betting Pick for the Toledo vs. Cincinnati game on September 12th 2014

Jack Jones - Betting PickToledo Rockets vs. Cincinnati Bearcats
Betting Pick: Cincinnati -9.5 (September 12th 2014)

Toledo (1-1) got off to a great start this season with a 54-20 victory over New Hampshire as an 11-point favorite. Many gave it a good chance to upset Missouri last week as it was just a 3.5-point underdog at home, including myself, but it fell by a final of 24-49.

Cincinnati must be chomping at the bit to get its season underway. It was the only team in the country to open with two straight byes to start the season. The Bearcats will only get one more bye the rest of the way as they now play eight straight weeks before receiving it.

One of the biggest reasons I picked Toledo to win the MAC this season was Alabama transfer Phillip Ely. He is a tremendous quarterback, but unfortunately the Rockets lost him to a season-ending knee injury in the loss to Missouri last week. This team is going to struggle without him out there calling the shots.

Quietly, Cincinnati has one of the best home-field advantages in the country. It has gone a combined 48-13 at home over the past 10 years. It has gone 5-1 or better at home in five of the past six seasons. Tommy Tuberville’s bunch won nine games last year and returns 13 starters this year. I actually have the Bearcats winning the AAC in 2014.

Just as I was high on Ely for Toledo, I’m even bigger on sophomore Gunner Kiel of Cincinnati. He was the top QB recruit in the country coming out of high school. Unfortunately, it did not work out for him at Notre Dame, so he decided to transfer here to the Bearcats. He’ll have the luxury of having four of the top five receivers back from last year and seven returning starters on offense in all. The defense gave up just 21.0 points and 316 yards per game last year and should be strong again.

Plays on favorites of 10.5 to 21 points (CINCINNATI) – incredible offense from last season – averaged 450 or more total yards/game are 52-22 (70.3%) ATS over the last 10 seasons. The Bearcats are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 non-conference games. Cincinnati has won 12 straight home openers by an average of 35 points per game. Bet Cincinnati Friday.

Cincinnati vs. SMU Basketball Betting Odds & Pick from Matt Fargo: February 8th 2014

Matt Fargo - College Basketball PickCincinnati vs. SMU
Basketball Betting Pick: SMU -3 -110 odds (February 8th 2014)

This is an ideal spot for Cincinnati’s special run to come to an end. The Bearcats have won 15 straight games and possess a perfect 11-0 record in the AAC, two and half games clear of Louisville. They have been far from dominating however as they have won their last four games by a combined 17 points and none by more than five points. Granted, elite teams do in fact win close games when they count and Cincinnati is clearly part of that this run is not going to last forever and tonight’s opponent will see to that. SMU is sitting in third place in the AAC, three and a half games behind the Bearcats at 7-3 and 18-5 overall. Barring a total meltdown over the next few weeks, the Mustangs will make it into the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1993 and this is definitely a statement game. We played on SMU last Saturday as it rolled to a win over Memphis at home and following a win over Temple on Thursday, it is 10-0 at home. Even more impressive is the fact that the Mustangs are a perfect 8-0 ATS on their home floor and they are winning their home games by close to 21 ppg. SMU lost the first meeting in Cincinnati by eight points despite outshooting the Bearcats 45.1 percent to 36.5 percent. They were killed by 17 turnovers and the refs did them no favors by putting them to the free throw line just nine times compared to 31 times for the Bearcats. SMU falls into a great situation where we play against teams that are coming off two consecutive home wins by five points or less going up against an opponent coming off two consecutive home wins by 10 points or more. This situation is 42-12 ATS (77.8 percent) since 1997. Play (624) SMU Mustangs
