NCAA Football Betting: Cincinnati Bearcats vs. M Thundering Herd

Friday night NCAA football betting returns this week when the Bearcats (3-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) travel to Huntington to take on the Thundering Herd (3-2 SU, 1-3 ATS).

The Bearcats may be 3-1, but they’re a mess after their fourth string quarterback was hurt in their 17-15 win over Akron last week, which might force HC Brian Kelly to start a lucky fan from the stands this week in Huntington.

Last week, Marshall lost their eighth straight game to in-state rival West Virginia, a 27-3 loss where the Thundering Herd didn’t come close to covering the closing football betting line as 16-point road pups. The quarterback situation in Cincinnati might be the worst in all of college football.

The year started with last year’s quarterback Ben Mauk being denied a sixth year of eligibility, followed by injuries to highly touted Demetrius Jones and Dustin Grutza, and then Tony Pike last week against Akron. The team will look to freshman Zach Collaros for the time being and he is going to need some help from his supporting cast.

HC Brian Kelly has been a friend to college football betting fans the past three seasons, going 20-7-1 ATS since 2006 with Central Michigan and Cincinnati against the closing NCAA football odds.

Last week, the Thundering Herd was a huge disappointment to NCAA gambling followers, only putting up three points and 158 total yards against a porous West Virginia stop unit. Five fumbles and an interception killed any sort of rhythm the offense could have established and the defense didn’t fare much better, surrendering a whopping 493 total yards.

WR Darius Passmore has been the star of the offense thus far, racking up 512 receiving yards and four touchdowns already this season. Marshall has played Cincinnati twice in the past five years and proved their status as underdogs according to the NCAA line in both games losing by a combined score of 72-28.

College football betting odds find the Bearcats as 3.5-point road favorites in this game.
