College Basketball Predictions: Memphis vs. Cincinnati 12/31/17

Can No. 21 Cincinnati cover a lofty spread at home when the Bearcats take on Memphis today at 4PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Cincinnati is favored at home in this game, as the Bearcats are getting odds of -20 points against Memphis. The over/under total for the contest has been set 131.5. Today’s game takes place from BB&T Arena in Highland Heights, Kentucky and air live on ESPNU.

Memphis is coming off a 71-61 loss to LSU earlier this week. The Tigers have dropped two of their last four games. Memphis is now 9-4 overall with a 4-6 record against the spread. The Tigers have failed to cover in their last two games. Memphis is averaging 71.2 per contest while giving up 69.6 per game. Jeremiah Martin is averaging 18.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game to lead the team while Kyvon Davenport is adding 13.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per contest.

Cincinnati is coming off an 81-62 win over Cleveland State for a fourth straight victory. The Bearcats are 11-2 on the season and 5-5 against the spread. Cincy is just 2-4 against the spread in their last six lined games. Cincinnati is averaging 80.8 points per game on offense while allowing 60 per contest. Jacob Evans is averaging 13.6 points and 4.3 rebounds per game to lead the team while Gary Clark is adding 12.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Memphis vs. Cincinnati

The home team has won six straight meetings in this series, but Memphis has covered in the last three encounters. The Bearcats are being given a lot of credit for this one and the 20-point spread is a big spread to cover. Memphis has been competitive in most of the losses and covered against Louisville as a 12-point dog a few weeks ago. The public betting is siding with Memphis today and I think the Tigers will be able to cover the spread.
