Why Consider Betting on Cincinnati at -12?

Why should you consider betting on Cincinnati in this contest? Because the Bearcats are the far better team and looking to pick up some momentum before the start of postseason play! Cincinnati has won two straight and comes into this contest off an 82-74 win over Tulsa on Sunday. Gary Clark led a 24-4 run that put Cincinnati ahead to stay early in the second half, and the 11th-ranked Bearcats held on for an 82-74 victory over Tulsa on Sunday that preserved their one-game lead in the American Athletic Conference heading into this contest. Clark picked up two fouls and played only eight minutes in the opening half when he had two points. His dunk started the go-ahead surge, and he had eight overall. “It’s frustrating, but the guys we have were holding it down while I was sitting down,” Clark said. With the win, Cincinnati remained ahead of No. 13 Wichita State (23-5, 13-3) in the race for the regular-season title. The Shockers won on Cincinnati’s home floor 76-72 a week ago.

Why Consider Betting on Tulane at +12?

Tulane is not favored by the NCAAB Odds against Cincinnati. Tulane shot a blistering 57 percent from the field in the win. The Green Wave average 74.7 points per game this season but give up an almost identical amount defensively (74.1 ppg).

Expert Analysis and Prediction

Cincinnati is the ‘super easy’ pick to cover the spread in this contest, even as a 12-point road favorite. The Bearcats are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS loss while Tulane has gone 8-21 ATS in their last 29 home games vs. a team with a winning road record, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight-up win and an awful 5-22 ATS in their last 27 home games against a team with a road winning percentage of greater than .600. Cincinnati is absolutely phenomenal in ranking second nationally in points allowed (57.5 ppg) and they’ll shut Tulane down from beginning to end in this one! Pick: Cincinnati Bearcats -12
