Point Spread Pick:
That win by the Memphis Tigers over Louisville was impressive but many times after a big upset win the victor struggles in their next game. That certainly won’t bode well for the Tigers facing a Bearcats team that has 1 loss at home this season. The one home loss was by 1-point to Louisville and note that Cincinnati won the other 7 games as host versus the American conference by 5 or greater points. The team has now lost two in a row and should be highly motivated to get back on track tonight versus Memphis. Take the Cincinnati Bearcats -4.5.
