Point Spread: 13.00 | -109.00 Cincinnati (Away)
Cincinnati comes into Houston as winners of four straight, but they are just 7-7 overall. Six of their seven losses have come in games decided by single digits, so the double digit cushion here against Houston looks generous. The Cougars are a strong team that have struggled a bit lately. They are coming off a loss at Wichita State, and they have failed to cover in four of their last five versus teams with a winning record. The underdog has covered in five of the last seven head to head meetings, so I'll take the points.
