NCAA Betting: South Florida Bulls vs. Cincinnati Bearcats

Big East football is on display on ESPN’s Thursday Night Football, and NCAA betting aficionados will get all of the action when the Bearcats play host to the Bulls.

Kickoff from Nippert Stadium is set for 7:30 ET.  The Bearcats (5-2, 2-4 ATS) have dominated this series since the two teams joined the Big East, going 3-2 SU and 4-1 ATS in the L/5 meetings.  They’ve covered four straight in this series, including last year’s 38-33 upset victory at Raymond James Stadium as five-point underdogs.

South Florida (6-2, 2-5 ATS) averaged 171.2 rushing yards per game heading into last week’s NCAA betting match-up against Louisville.  That number will drop like a rock after they only managed eight yards on 24 carries.

South Florida never found themselves in front of the 4-point spread on the college football betting line, and two interceptions by QB Matt Grothe sealed the 24-20 outright defeat.  Grothe did pace the Bulls offense with 344 passing yards, and now has 1,896 passing yards this year.

That said; USF is now just 1-2 SU and ATS in Big East play and 3-6 ATS in its L/9 conference road games.  Things didn’t go much better for college football betting fans that backed Cincinnati last week at Storrs either.  UCONN knocked off the Bearcats 40-16 in spite of the fact that it was a three-point underdog per the closing football betting line.

The victory halted Cincy’s four-game winning streak.  Cincinnati only racked up 30 rushing yards on 19 carries and went a pitiful 0-14 on 3rd down attempts.  Their quarterbacks combined to throw three picks.

Much like the rest of the nation, the Cincy defense had no answer for Donald Brown III, who racked up 150 yards on the ground to go along with a pair of touchdowns.  The ‘total’ of 44 was eclipsed, the first time that a Bearcats game went ‘over’ the ‘total’ since September 20th.

Oddsmakers have installed South Florida as 3-point road favorites, with the ‘total’ coming in at 51.  South Florida has struggled in primetime this season; going 0-2 ATS in both of its ESPN televised games.
