Bet on College Basketball for Friday, March 16, 2018

Our Prediction: Georgia State comes in hot. Not just due to winning it conference tournament, but the Panthers have covered the spread in four straight games. Covering on the road has been a common theme throughout the season for Georgia State, as it is 14-5 against the spread away from home. Cincinnati has one of the top defenses in the country, but Georgia State isn’t too shabby on defense either. That likely means a low-scoring game, which can make it hard for Cincinnati to pull away. While the Bearcats are on a nice seven-game win streak right now, they have failed to cover in their last three games. Look for this game to be more competitive than Cincinnati would like and for Georgia State to cover the spread.

Cincinnati vs. Georgia State Prediction: GEORGIA STATE +13.5
