Why UCF Knights are a good bet -4?

The UCF Knights bounced back from an upset loss to Pittsburgh on Sep 21 this past Saturday with a massive 56-21 victory over the Connecticut Huskies. The Knights dominated Connecticut with one of the top scoring offenses in college football.

But, Central Florida isn’t a one unit squad. The Knights also post a great defense that allows less than 20 points per. UCF is favored for a reason. They’ve got a shot of beating and covering against a top rival on Friday night.

Why Cincinnati Bearcats are a good bet -4 ½?

Ohio State dominated Cincinnati 42-0 on Sep. 7. Since then, the Bearcats have stepped it up big time with victories straight up and against the spread over both the Miami-Ohio Redhawks and the Marshall Thundering Herd.

The win over the Herd was particularly impressive because Cincinnati headed to Marshall a -4 road favorite. The Bearcats left Marshall 52-14 winners. Cincy’s on a roll. They have a shot to not only cover the spread at home against UCF, but to also win this game straight up.

UCF vs Cincinnati College Football Betting Analysis

Central Florida showed that it can dominate a really bad team like the Connecticut Huskies in their last. However, the jury is still out on whether the Knights can hang with a team of Cincinnati’s caliber.

Pittsburgh upset Central Florida 35-34 a couple of games ago. The Knights entered that matchup a -9 road favorite. The key for this game on Friday night could be the venue. Last season, UCF rolled over the Bearcats 38-13. Cincinnati has a tendency to fold on the road.

They’re 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, though. The Bearcats should use their decent defense to at least slow down the Central Florida Knights. If the offense truly did switch to “on” in the last contest against Marshall, Cincinnati should also put way more than 13 points on the board. Bearcats to cover is the play.
