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?

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.

Betting Strategy

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.
