No Locks today.
East Carolina/Cincinnati over 55 (-110): In games like this against a weak opponent, the Bearcats need style points for the playoff committee to notice them, which will translate to a lot of points on the scoreboard. The Cincinnati rushing offense behind Desmond Ridder can’t be stopped right now, and the Pirates will offer little resistance as a squad that allows 217 rush YPG.
The Pirates can put up some points though behind Holton Ahlers, averaging almost 30 a game, and I expect them to get scores once Cincinnati calls off the dogs in garbage time. If Cincinnati has one slight weakness right now, it’s some injuries in the secondary, so the opportunity for a couple scores is there for the Pirates. I expect the Bearcats to hang a number in the 40’s which makes it pretty easy to get past this total which is below the key number of 56.
