American Athletic Conference rivals Cincinnati and Memphis kickoff Week 10 college football action when they meet at the Liberty Bowl in Tennessee tomorrow night. Wednesday’s showdown between the two rivals is scheduled to kickoff at 8:00pm ET on ESPN2. The latest College Football Odds from offshore bookmaker Carbon Sports have the visiting Bearcats listed as a -3.5 pick against the spread favorite and the Over/Under set at 44 points.
Cincinnati Bearcats vs Memphis Grizzlies (+3.5, Over/Under 44): Memphis move to deeper waters has been an unsuccessful one thus far with the team posting a 1-5 record in its first six games as a member of the AAC. However, despite its poor overall mark and 0-3 conference record, the Tigers have been an extremely competitive bunch. With the exception of a 14 point loss to Duke in its season opener, Memphis has tested every opponent, losing to Middle Tennessee, Central Florida, Houston, and SMU by an average of six points per contest.
The Tigers stingy defense, which presently ranks 13th in the nation in yards per game allowed with a 331 average, should provide a stiff test for a Cincinnati team and offense that appears to be getting more comfortable under new head coach Tommy Tuberville.
The Bearcats have some impressive performances on their resume, and they are coming off back to back home wins in which they outscored Temple and Connecticut 79-36; however, their play on the road has been suspect at best. Cincinnati, which improved to 5-2 with an October 19th win over UConn, is 1-2 away from home with ugly losses to Illinois and South Florida and a 14-0 win over a Miami, Ohio squad that is 0-8 and giving up an average of 32.5 points per game.
Notable Trends: The Tigers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games as a home dog, covering spreads of 13, 5, 24, 3.5, and 9.5 points.
