Last week, the Cincinnati Bearcats ranked second on the AP Poll. On Tuesday night, the College Football Playoff came out with their first rankings and, not surprisingly, the CFP Selection Committee showed no respect for the Bearcats. Even though Cincinnati has a road victory over Top 10 Notre Dame, the undefeated Bearcats are #6. Will the rankings prove the committee right? Or will Cincinnati cover the spread against Tulsa and show how badly the committee got it wrong? Check out NCAAF odds, analysis, and a free pick for Tulsa versus Cincinnati.

Tulsa at #6 Cincinnati Final Betting Prediction
Say what you want, but the Cincinnati Bearcats believe they’re one of the very best teams in the nation. Quarterback Desmond Ridder and the Bearcat faithful knew there was a chance the committee might disrespect the Bearcats in the first poll.
All Cincinnati must do to change the doubters is to dominate their opponents. Tulsa’s biggest problem in this game is how they allow more than 30 points per contest.
Ridder and the Bearcats’ offense should score 35 before halftime. Coach Luke Fickell won’t let up in the second half. Expect at least a 30 points Cincinnati victory.
