Who We Like: Houston will struggle with Cincinnati's length in the frontcourt and both of these teams will have sound defensive game plans so I like the under. In the second meeting between these two teams this season, the Cougars effectively forced the Bearcats to make a much of jumpers. Cincinnati instead drove the lane and created a bunch of foul shots (32 to be exact) but perhaps the officials will let the two teams play today.

The under is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between these two teams and has cashed in seven of the Cougars' last eight games when facing an opponent with a winning record. On the other side, the under is 6-1 in the Bearcats' last seven games when facing an opponent with a winning record and is 57-28 in their last 85 games coming off an ATS loss.
