Cincin­nati over UCLA by 10

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2017-18 Ncaa & Nba Basketball -

The 25th-ranked Bearcats think they are most tal­ented team in the AAC this sea­son (though Wi­chita State sup­port­ers will whole­heart­edly dis­agree) as they wel­come back three starters from last year’s 30-win squad. They also have pay­back on their minds as they were bounced by the Bru­ins in the sec­ond round of last year’s Big Dance. And that makes Mick Cronin’s crew ex­tremely dan­ger­ous to­day in West­wood. Yes, the Bru­ins are off to a 7-2 start (only 3-6 ATS) but the Cats’ prowl into Pauley Pav­il­ion may not be that per­ilous con­sid­er­ing UCLA is just 5-13 ATS at home against non-divi­sion aveng­ing foes, in­clud­ing ver­sus .500 or greater op­po­si­tion (did we hear John Wooden rolling over in his grave?). Cou­ple that with Cincy’s 3-0 SUATS mark away ver­sus Pac-12 res­i­dents and you can see why th­ese Bearcats get the last dance. A must take.
