Cincinnati had been playing well within the conference, but has dropped three of their last four games and is now in 7th place in the conference. Wichita State is currently in 8th place in the conference and has had some more recent success than the Bearcats. Both of these teams are pretty similar when looking at the stats, so I am going with the home team.
