Houston vs. Cincinnati CBB Prediction:
Both teams look to win consecutive games on Saturday.
Take the Bearcats. These two teams play a similar style, tough defense and crash the glass. Neither team shoots the ball extremely well, however I’ll give the edge to Cincinnati with being them being at home. I expect this to be a lowing scoring game that is close throughout. Grab the points with Cincy.
