Houston vs. Cincinnati Prediction and Pick

Earlier this week, BetSided’s Matt De Saro chose the Cincinnati Bearcats to win the game, but sees it being closer than Vegas indicates.

“This is a tough call because the Bearcats are playing to make history but the Cougars match up pretty well against them. I don’t doubt that Cincinnati makes it out of this game alive, but it won't be without some drama. I’m going to side with the Cougars on that juicy double-digit spread. .” 

Cincinnati has shown the propensity to not pull away from teams this season. Houston is not a team to let hang around because the Cougars are a dangerous football team. I think the Bearcats win this game, but Houston won’t go down without a fight. 

Pick: Houston +10.5
