Houston vs. UCF Prediction

Houston vs. UCF, 12/26/20 College Basketball Betting Predictions

No. 6 Houston puts its undefeated record on the line Saturday when it visits 3-1 UCF at 1:00 p.m. ET on ABC. Is 7.5 points too much to lay with the Cougars or will they roll past their American Athletic Conference foes with ease today?

Houston vs. UCF College Basketball Prediction

The Cougars are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games following a straight up win of more than 20 points and have failed to cover in four of their last five road games when facing an opponent with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. Houston has also failed to cover in eight of its last nine games following an ATS win, is 0-6 against the number in its last six games when favored on the road, and is 0-4 against the spread in its last four road games.

On the other side, the Knights are a perfect 4-0 at the betting window in their last four home games and have covered the spread in five of their last six games overall. With this game shown on national TV and UCF playing on its home court, I like the Knights to hang with the Cougars today.
