Are the 18th-ranked Wichita State Shockers in a prime position to record the upset today when they travel to the fifth-ranked Cincinnati Bearcats for a 4PM ET start?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Bearcats are listed as a 6-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 141 points. The spread remains where it was when it opened as does the total.

Bet Today's NCAA Action

As of Sunday morning, 57 percent of public bets are coming in on Cincinnati. Online wager info also shows that 52 percent of bets are siding with the under.

Cincinnati enters today's contest a perfect 13-0 straight up at home, but hasn't played an opponent nearly as tough as the Shockers. While there have been no recent meetings to collect data from, we can tell you Wichita State comes in hot with wins in five of its last six with the only blemish being an 81-79 overtime loss at Temple. Wichita State is 5-5 ATS in its last 10 games and the over has hit six straight times and is 8-2 in the last 10. The Shockers are also a solid 6-2 straight up on the road.

Not sure if this stat has any relevance, but Wichita State is 20-6-1 ATS in its last 27 Sunday games, while Cincinnati is 19-39 ATS in its last 58 Sunday games. Take that as you will.

The Bearcats had their 16-game winning streak ended last game with a 67-62 loss at Houston, losing despite being a 2-point favorite. The Bearcats are 6-3-1 ATS in their last 10 games, while the under has gone 6-4.

I think the Shockers stay within the number here. This has the makings of a contest that will go down to the wire. Wichita State has been playing great lately, while Cincinnati isn't playing its best basketball. Take the underdog and enjoy watching what should be a fantastic game.
