Houston 38 CINCINNATI 30. UC has gone 6-1-1 ATS vs Houston and last year should have beaten the Cougars outright as they lost 33-30 (+9) on the road but were +162 yards in the game. This year Cincinnati has benefited from TO’s in each of the first two weeks. Last week they beat Purdue 38-20 (-3) but were +5 TO’s and were outFD’d 29-22. On the other side, Houston QB Greg Ward, Jr sat out last week’s win over Lamar as the team rested many of its players off the big win over Oklahoma in order to get ready for this short travel week. He should be ready to go here. The team showed its depth with 3 RB’s topping 100 yards for the first time since 1974 despite starting RB Catalon resting (also back for this game). Both teams are in their preferred roles with UC 8-2 ATS as a home underdog the last 10 years while Houston is 13-1-1 ATS in true road games the last 4 years. We’re passing.
