The Bearcats are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 non-conference games. The RedHawks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games. The under is 4-1 in Bearcats last 5 neutral site games. The under is 4-1 in RedHawks last 5 games overall. The Bearcats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The underdog is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
The Cincinnati Bearcats are the better, more talented team, obviously, but it's fair to suggest this is a bigger game for the Miami (OH) RedHawks in terms of motivation. The RedHawks also held their own against Kentucky in their season opener, as that game was tied heading into halftime. The Cincinnati Bearcats should be favored and probably win comfortably, but this line is a bit too steep. I'm not sure Cincinnati is this much better than the RedHawks. Give me the underdog in this Ohio showdown.
