The Cincinnati Bearcats improved to 5-0 on the season after upsetting the 14th ranked Illinois Fighting Illini, 71-51, last night. Cincinnati fought back from an early 15-point deficit to take a 34-31 halftime lead and pulled away in the 2nd half after going up by a 53-36 margin with 10:44 left in regulation.

The 13th ranked Arkansas Razorbacks improved to 4-0 on the season after defeating the Kansas State Wildcats, 72-64, last night. Arkansas was solid defensively against Kansas State and was able to hold on for the victory after going into halftime with a 42-24 lead. Arkansas shot 36.2% from the field & 13.6% from beyond the arc while holding Kansas State to 37.3% from the field & 13.6% from beyond the arc.

The Bearcats are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games over all and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games. The Razorbacks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games & 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win.

Cincinnati has been impressive on the defensive end to start the season and picked up a great win against Illinois, however, I think this is a tough matchup for the Bearcats as the Razorbacks are a very talented offensive team that have 3-4 different players that can be their “main” guy on any given night. Arkansas showed us last night against Kansas State that they can also be tough defensively and between the fact that the Razorbacks rank 61st in scoring offense & 45th in turnover margin, I think the Razorbacks do enough in this one to cover this mid-range spread. Good Luck!
