Houston is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 36-17 ATS in their last 53 Sunday games. The over is 4-0-1 in Houston’s last 5 Sunday games. Cincinnati is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 home games and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games. The under is 4-1 in Cincinnati’s last 5 games. The favorite is 6-0 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Houston comes into this game ranked #2 in the country, but will be on the road for this matchup. Cincinnati has won four of their last five games and has a high scoring offense. Houston is only allowing 51 points against per game, so it will be interesting to see if they can shut down Cincinnati. I think we are going to see a good pace in this game and I am taking the over.
