Big East Showdown

No. 5 Cincinnati looks to continue its perfect season Friday night when the Bearcats host West Virginia at 8PM ET from Nippert Stadium.

Bet West Virginia at Cincinnati
Cincinnati is 9-0 on the season and 6-3 against the spread. The Bearcats had covered in three-straight games prior to last week’s 47-45 win over Connecticut, where Cincinnati was covering the 16-point spread odds in the fourth quarter only to have the Huskies rally to make it interesting. Trends show that two of the Bearcats betting losses came at home this season.

West Virginia is 7-2 on the season and 2-6 against the spread. The Mountaineers have failed to cover in four straight and in six of their last seven games. West Virginia has only been the underdog one time this season, and it failed to cover in that game, which was a 41-30 loss to Auburn.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made Cincinnati 9-point home favorites over West Virginia on Thursday night. The over/under total for this game has been established at 54.

Cincinnati coach Brian Kelly announced that Zach Collaros will start Friday’s game at quarterback, but Tony Pike will also see time after missing the last few games with a broken arm. Collaros has thrown 10 touchdown passes and one interception on the year while Pike has 15 touchdowns with three interceptions. The Bearcats have the top offense in the Big East, scoring 40 points per-game. The Bearcats have thrown for just under 3,000 yards passing through nine games.

Along with a strong offense, the Bearcats have the top defense in the conference as well giving up only 16.4 points per-game. The Mountaineers are mediocre on both sides of the ball, as the defense struggles against the pass and the offense has had a hard time moving the ball through the air. In order for the Mountaineers to win, Noel Devine has to have a big day on the ground, as quarterback Jarret Brown has just 10 passing touchdowns with eight interceptions. Trends show that West Virginia is 7-0 at Nippert Stadium, but the Mountaineers may not have enough fire power to cover the 9-point spread odds against Cincinnati.
