Why Bet the Cincinnati Bearcats Line at +24.5
Cincinnati has looked increasingly worse in dropping three straight and comes into this Week 7 matchup off a dismal 51-23 home loss to Central Florida as a 15-point underdog. The Cincinnati Bearcats have lost six of their last seven road games and got completely dominated by the Knights last weekend as central Florida quarterback McKenzie Milton completed 16 of 19 passes while throwing a whopping five touchdowns. Cincinnati is averaging a modest 22.8 points per game (104th) while allowing a generous 33.0 points per contest (33rd).
Why Bet the South Florida Bulls Line at -24.5
The Bulls beat the hell out of East Carolina last weekend 61-31 to remain unbeaten as dual-threat quarterback Quinton Flowers led the way to victory by completing 10 of 18 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 93 yards and another score on 10 carries. South Florida also got four more rushing scores in the win while racking up a whopping 390 rushing yards as a team in the win. This year, Flowers is completing just 52.9 percent of his passes for 934 yards, but he’s also tossed 10 touchdowns and two interceptions while adding 395 rushing yards and five additional touchdowns. The Bulls are averaging a stellar 44.8 points per game to rank fifth nationally while limiting their opponents to 20.0 points per game defensively (20th).

If you’re thinking about betting on this Week 7 affair, I wouldn’t be worried one iota that South Florida can cover the chalk as a 24.5-point home favorite. The Bulls can score at will while Cincinnati struggles to get in the end zone – or stop their opponents. Cincinnati is just 1-5 ATS in their last six conference games, 2-8 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games overall while South Florida has gone 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games in the month of October, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games. I smell a huge beatdown coming in this one as South Florida rolls!
Pick: South Florida -24.5
