UConn vs. Cincinnati Prediction
The Cincinnati Bearcats will host conference foe UConn at 7:00 p.m. ET on Thursday night. Is the betting total set too high by oddsmakers?
Who Oddsmakers Like: Cincinnati. According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Bearcats are now 19-point home favorites to beat the Huskies, who opened as 20-point road underdogs. The total, meanwhile, sits at 131 points.
Who Public Bettors Like: UConn. As of Thursday morning, 54% of betting tickets are on the Huskies to cover the spread. Meanwhile, 57% of the betting tickets wagered online for this game are on the under.
Injury to Watch
There really isn’t a key injury to be aware of in this matchup. Cincinnati is healthy and outside of a couple of depth players out for UConn, the Huskies are relatively healthy as well.
I like the under, which is 8-3 in the Bearcats’ last 11 games coming off a loss and is 55-27 in their last 82 games following an ATS loss. The under has cashed in six of the Huskies’ last eight games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage of above .600 and is 5-2 in their last seven games played on Thursday.
