South Florida looks to regroup after suffering a 40-9 blowout loss to the Miami Hurricanes as 6.5-point road underdogs, while going UNDER the total for the third time in four contests. The Bulls were playing without senior quarterback B.J. Daniels, who is out for the season with an ankle injury, but weren’t able to get anything going with Bobby Eveld and Matt Floyd. “I thought Bobby and Matt as two young guys coming into a football game competed hard,” stated Bulls coach Skip Holtz. South Florida is 4-14 ATS versus conference opponents the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 11-8 in that situation.
The Bulls are 3-6 all-time against the Bearcats, as they look to gain revenge from a 37-34 loss as three-point home favorites last year, while going OVER the total in four of the last five meetings since 2007. South Florida doesn’t have much to play for, considering it isn’t eligible to participate in the bowl season for a second straight year.
Cincinnati had its two-game win streak snapped in suffering a 10-3 loss to the Rutger Scarlet Knights as 6.5-point home favorites, while going UNDER the total for a second straight contest. The Bearcats allowed 234 rushing yards, which was the deciding factor in a hard-fought game in the trenches. “I said earlier in the week that the game would be decided at the line of scrimmage,” stated Bearcats coach Butch Jones. He must now motivate a locker that still has the opportunity to win 10 games this year. Cincinnati is 13-10 ATS as a favorite over the last two-plus years, with the UNDER going 12-7 in that situation.
The Bearcats have managed to run for 200-plus years in seven games this season, but were limited to just 90 against one of the better defensive fronts in college football. Cincinnati running back George Winn has still managed to go over the 1,000-yard mark, while quarterback Brendon Kay set career-highs in passing yards and completions.
Sports bettors will likely back the Bulls due to the road team being 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings, while the Bearcats are 7-15 ATS after a spread loss.
