Cincinnati is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games. SMU is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games. The under is 4-0 in SMU’s last 4 games.

SMU is currently in second place of the AAC standings, while Cincinnati is sitting in seventh. Both teams are coming off of double-digit losses to Houston, but SMU has the better offense and shooting percentage. I am taking SMU at home.
