7:00 PM EST. Fading a team that is fresh to the Top 25 is one of our favorite angles and the Bearcats are primed for an upset after cracking the polls for the first time this season. At #23, the Bearcats instantly gain the credibility and market appeal that comes with that designation, but as we know, who is ranked where is usually quite meaningless at the beginning of February, which leaves Cincy overvalued and vulnerable. Cincinnati has won nine of its last 10 games and brings an impressive 19-3 record to the table, but the Bearcats are guilty when it comes to feasting on the fat when it comes to their non-conference competition. Cincy has played the 235 most difficult non-conference schedule in the country which is 81 spots behind Memphis.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are coming off three losses in their last four games, but with all of those defeats coming on the road, we're willing to forgive them. In fact, Memphis has lost just one game on its home floor and that was to #1 Tennessee and although it lost by double digits, UM did not look out of place and it outscored the Vols 57-52 in the second half. The Tigers are primed to get a signature win and that it can come against one of its biggest AAC rivals should only sweeten the deal. Take the points if you like, but we're going for the gusto and playing the Tigers to win outright.
