As college football fans, we all tend to be a little hyper-focused on what’s going on in the Power 5 conferences, simply because that is where the playoff teams are going to come from. When we do that, though, we miss out on good teams that are sitting in the top 25 at this late stage of the season. When you narrow your focus that way, you can miss out on solid betting opportunities, which is why it’s always a good idea to go through the entire schedule to find games to wager on that you might otherwise have totally glossed over.
We do what we can to help by previewing games that may not be paying attention to, and we have a good one set to go this coming Saturday. The 7-win Temple Owls will be on the road to face the red-hot Cincinnati Bearcats in an AAC Conference matchup. The Bearcats have already clinched a spot in the Conference Championship Game, but they will want to maintain their current winning run. They are in as a 10 ½ point home favorite, with the point total set at 45.

Why bet on the Temple Owls?It looked for a moment as though the Owls were going to see their season come off the rails in a big wat after losing back to back games to UCF and SMU and surrendering a total of 108 points in the process. They have done a very nice job of righting the ship, winning their 2 games since those defeats and once again playing good defensive football. Temple have been consistently good in conference play, winning 12 of their last 15 games in the AAC.
They have also been good versus Cincinnati, winning 4 of the last 5 meetings and covering the spread in 5 of the last 6 versus the Bearcats. Overall, their record against the spread when playing on the road has also been solid, going 14-6 ATS in their last 20 away from home.

Why bet on the Cincinnati Bearcats?The Cincinnati Bearcats are sitting at #19 in the national rankings after going 9-1 SU through their first 10 games of the season. Their lone loss this year is one that they certainly have no reason to be ashamed of, a 42-0 loss to the #2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. Since that defeat, the Bearcats have won 8 games in a row and put together a perfect 6-0 record in conference play, which is good enough to ensure that they oust the UCF Knights at the top of their division in the AAC.
This will, by no means, be an easy game for the Bearcats given that they have struggled against Temple in recent years, but home field advantage certainly helps. Cincinnati have won each of their last 11 games in their own building and are 3-1 ATS there this season.
