Cincinnati at Tulane Final Betting Prediction
The Oklahoma game is many moons ago. Since covering versus the Sooners and then covering in a 69-20 victory over Morgan State, the Green Wave have faltered on the moneyline and against the spread in 5 straight.
Some of the losses were downright pathetic, like giving up 52 to East Carolina and 55 to Southern Methodist. Cincinnati is better than both of those teams.
The Bearcats are the legit #2 team in the country. They’ve got quality road wins against Notre Dame and Indiana and trounced rival UCF 56-21. The point spread seems big, and it is, but the Bearcats, who are 5-2 ATS this season, should beat Tulane by at least 30.
