Prediction

UCF 35, Cincinnati 27

Moneyline ( ?)

Despite an impressive home record, Cincinnati (+150) opens up this game as home underdogs against UCF (-182). While there is some value in taking the home dog, I like Central Florida to win this game.

Against the Spread ( ?)

Cincinnati (+3.5, -106) opens this game as more than a field goal underdog against UCF (-3.5, -115). The Bearcats just don't have a good enough offense (19.67 PPG) to keep up with the high-flying Knights. Expect this game to be close for a while but for Central Florida to eventually cover the spread by the end.

Over/Under ( ?)

The total for this AAC matchup is set at 60.5, which seems low considering how explosive Central Florida's offense has been this season. Look for the OVER (60.5, -106) to barely hit.
