College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bearcats are 2-5-1 ATS in the last eight meetings in Memphis. Cincinnati is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games versus a team with a winning straight up record.
The Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games. Memphis is 1-5 ATS in its last six home games.
The Bearcats are on a roll, but the couple of teams they have played during this streak as good as Memphis haven't exactly been easy wins. Memphis has dropped its last two on the road, but at home it has won its last seven games. This seems like a bad spot for Cincinnati after entering the top 25.
