UCONN at CINCY

No. 4 Cincinnati looks to continue to climb up the BCS rankings on Saturday when the Bearcats host Connecticut at 8PM ET from Nippert Stadium.

Bet Connecticut at Cincinnati
The Bearcats are still the biggest surprise of the 2009 season, starting off 8-0 on the season with a record of 6-2 against the spread. In the two games that Cincinnati failed to cover, the spreads were 17 and 29.5-points respectively.

The Huskies were the last team to beat Cincinnati in the regular season, as UConn defeated the Bearcats 40-16 last year at home. This season, Connecticut is 4-4 overall and 7-1 against the spread. UConn has lost three of its last four games, but has covered the spread in all their road games this season.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Cincinnati 16.5-point home favorites over Connecticut on Saturday night. The over/under total for this game has been established at 51.5.

Cincinnati has failed to score less than 28 points this season while not allowing more than 20 on defense, making it a reasonable pick for Saturday. The Bearcats have balanced two quarterbacks this season as original starter Tony Pike suffered a broken arm a few weeks ago, but backup Zach Collaros has filled in nicely. Altogether, the two have combined for nearly 2,500 yards passing.

Connecticut has a respectable passing attack in its own right, but Cody Endres has thrown for just six touchdown passes this year. The key in this game will be Cincinnati’s superior defense against the Huskies inferior offense. The Bearcats have 15 interceptions on the season and are an aggressive team that can pose a lot of problems for UConn. We don’t expect the Huskies to be able to move the ball as effectively as the Bearcats, which should allow Cincinnati to cover the spread. Pick the Bearcats and the under this week.
