Cincinnati vs. Texas Free Pick

March 16, 2012

March Madness gets under way this week and a big Friday matchup has the Texas Longhorns taking on the Cincinnati Bearcats. The two will meet at the Bridgestone Arena on March 16. The noon tipoff will start the day’s festivities.

Bearcats ATS

Texas ended their regular season 20-13 overall and 10-18 ATS the spread. Their defense gave up nearly 69 points per game, while their offense averaged just over 73 per contest. Cincinnati ended their season with a 24-10 record and was 15-13 ATS. Their defense only gave up an average of 61 points per game and their offense scored on average 68.

The current line has the Bearcats as 2-point favorites over the Longhorns with the point total sitting at 129. The only player listed in the injury reports is Alexis Wangmene of Texas. He is out for the season with a wrist injury. The two teams have not met in the past.

Over their last five games, the Longhorns are 3-2 SU. They lost in the Big 12 tournament to Missouri 81-67, to end their season. Their other loss in that stretch was to regular season Big 12 champion Kansas 73-63. Cincinnati is 4-1 SU over their last five games. They lost in the Big East tournament championship to the Louisville Cardinals 50-44. In that game, Louisville was a 3.5-point favorite.

The two teams matchup well. The defenses for both are the key. Cincinnati’s defense can lock down opponents and can dictate the flow of a game. In the Big East tournament, they were able to defeat both Georgetown and regular season champion Syracuse before falling in the final to Louisville.

Cincinnati will win this game SU and ATS to move onto the next round on Sunday. The total will be UNDER, as both teams will look to slow it down offensively.  Bet this game at JustBet for 100% Bonus
