There are those out there that will automatically take the SEC team in a matchup over the AAC representative. Well, that may have worked in the past, but 2020 is full of surprises. And if we have learned anything, it’s that we must expect the unexpected. With all respect to head coach Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs, they are not unbeatable. They were picked apart by quarterbacks Mac Jones and Kyle Trask. Sports fans, Desmond Riddler (2,090 yards passing, 66.4% completion rate, 17/6) may not be as popular as the previously mentioned, but he is darn good and has an arsenal of receivers to dissect the 90th ranked pass defense of Georgia. Then there is the way we look at the Bulldogs when they are on offense. They have very pedestrian numbers. Sure, they can smash lesser defenses like that of the Razorbacks, Gamecocks, and Tigers (Missouri) but this defense they face here, is not a lesser one. And don’t think for a moment that the Bearcats ”D”, which ranks 8th nationally (16.0 PPG) can be intimidated here. Cincy is 4-1 ATS the last five nonconference games and 4-0 ATS the last four games played as an underdog. Take the points with Cincy here and watch an AAC rep gets you paid over the mighty SEC. Take the Bearcats. Thank you.
