Cincinnati Bearcats Betting Preview

The Bearcats defeated Navy in their last game, as Ben Bryant threw for 25 completions, 299 yards, and two touchdowns.

Charles McClelland also opened up the running game with 60 yards and 11 attempts.

Scott Tyler hauled in 10 receptions and 139 yards, scoring two TDs in the process. Jaden Thompson added three receptions and 89 yards.

The Bearcats are coming into play boasting a top-notch defense, as they’re only allowing 21 points per game. They’re also only giving up 322.6 yards a game, including 180.9 passing per game.

Defense wins championships, and that will be key for the Bearcats as they hope to shut down one of the more elite offenses in college football.

East Carolina is one of the most efficient teams when it comes to passing the ball and running the ball, which is a dangerous recipe when it comes to putting points up on the board.

East Carolina Pirates Betting Preview

The Pirates are coming off a close victory over BYU, as Holton Ahlers threw for 15 completions and 197 yards

Lopini Katoa opened up the ground game with 20 rushes, 116 yards, and a touchdown.

Puka Nacua hauled in seven receptions and 79 yards to go along with a touchdown.

The Pirates are a very difficult team to defend, as they’re putting up 467.2 yards a game and 296.8 passing yards a game.

They show tremendous efficiency while throwing the ball as well, as they have thrown just five interceptions.

The ground game of East Carolina will allow them to pick up yards in pivotal situations, which opens up the offense in a myriad of ways. Once you get the running game going, you put yourself in a position where you’re tough to stop.

This group will have to look out for the defense of Cincinnati, as they can shut down passing and running lanes and play hard-nosed defense to prevent the opposing team from picking up any type of momentum.

Odds

The odds for this game favor Cincinnati with a spread of -5.

In football, defenses always get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to matchups, as it takes a special, special offense to crack the best defenses out there.

However, East Carolina has that type of offense and then some, which will keep Cincinnati on their toes all night long.

Given East Carolina’s recent surge, they seem to have all the momentum necessary to come into Cincinnati and make a statement.

Cincinnati didn’t necessarily put away Navy their last time out, so even if Cincinnati could pull out a win, it might not be enough for them to cover the spread.
