The Ohio University Bobcats are in for an in-state match-up against the Cincinnati Bearcats this weekend. Ohio is coming in off of a 45-31 lost to Virginia. While Cincy is feeling really good about themselves after beating down Alabama A&M 63-7. Not much competition for them but any time you score over 60 on a team you’ve got to be feeling great about things.

The Bobcats are Looking for Their First Road Win

Ohio is definitely overmatched in this one. It’s going to take an amazing effort for them to stay with Cincinnati for the entire game. If they’re going to do so they’ll need to rely heavily on their offense. The team has scored over 30 points in every game this season. Offense has not been the problem and senior WR Papi White has been huge for them early on. White has 14 receptions with 285 yards and two touchdowns so far this year.

The problem for Ohio has been on the defensive side of the ball. They’re allowing 598.5 yards a game to go with allowing 38.5 points per game. Those are unreal numbers. If they are going to allow that kind of yardage and that many points to Cincinnati in this one the only way they’ll win is in a shootout. This defense is just atrocious so look for them to try and force some turnovers because they are not good enough to keep the Bearcats under wraps for the entire game.

Cincy Looking to Stay Hot

The Bearcats come into this one on fire. They’ve won their first three games of the season and have covered the spread in each of them. They’ve looked very impressive in all of those games, although the only legitimate team they’ve faced was UCLA. They won that one on the road 26-17.

They’ve played very well on both sides of the ball this season. Offensively they’re led by freshman QB Desmond Ridder who has yet to throw an interception this season and has guided the offense to a 36.7 points per game average so far.

On the other side of the ball they’re allowing just 8.0 points per game. Their run defensive has been particularly impressive, they are holding teams to just 83.7 yards per game. This defense has only allowed 7 points in their last nine quarters. If they can keep up those kinds of numbers they have a great shot at going 4-0.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Bearcats have been lights out on both offense and defense this season posting some very impressive numbers with regards to point for and against. They shouldn’t have much of a problem continuing that trend against this porous Ohio defense. Anytime you’re giving up almost 600 yards per game you’ve got a defense that is putting way too much pressure on their offense to perform. The Bobcats offense will not only be forced to play big they’ll need to do it against a very good Bearcats defense. I don’t expect them to be able to stay with the Cincinnati offense all game, expect the Bearcats to cover the spread in this one.

Prediction: Cincinnati Bearcats -9

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

While we’ve got a very solid defense for one team in Cincinnati, Ohio’s is a total joke. But The Bobcats offense is not one that will likely be held down by Cincy all game. They are averaging over 30 per game and it’s not likely that they will be held in check all game long. A nice trend for Ohio is that seven of their last eight non-conference games have gone over the total.

Cincinnati should have no problem running up and down the field on the Ohio defense. The over is 5-1 in Cincy’s last 6 when allowing less than 100 yards rushing in the previous game which they did last week. They play is the over.

Prediction: Over 56
