NCAA Football Betting: Cincinnati Bearcats vs. UCONN Huskies

Two Big East teams that had surprisingly good NCAA football betting seasons in 2007 will meet up in Storrs this week when the Huskies welcome in the Bearcats.

The Bearcats (5-1 SU, 2-3 ATS) had a week off last week after a 13-10 win against Rutgers two Saturdays ago that failed to cover the football betting line.  Connecticut flipped the Bearcats’ schedule and had a bye two weeks ago before playing the Scarlet Knights, and losing 12-10, last week.

Freshman QB Chazz Anderson came into the season buried on the depth chart, but due to a rash of injuries got the start against Rutgers.  In the game, Anderson completed 21-of-29 passes for 239 yards and ran for Cincinnati’s lone touchdown in the victory.

Despite going 0-11 on third down conversions, the Bearcats won the game thanks in large part to a great defensive effort and no turnovers on the offensive side of the ball.  Due to their strong defense and the slew of injuries at quarterback, it is little surprise to college football bettors that the Bearcats last three games have gone under the ‘total’ per the closing NCAA football odds.

The Bearcats have yet to lose to the Huskies in four meetings.  With starting QB Tyler Lorenzen hurt, the Huskies (5-2 SU, 3-3 ATS) have struggled under new QB Zach Fraser after a 5-0 start to their season.

Despite only scoring 22 points in the two games under Fraser, the Huskies were able to secure a win against the college football wagering odds last week when they covered by one point against Rutgers.  The Huskies had many chances to win the game, but kicker Tony Ciaravino missed three field goals in the two point defeat.

At home this season, gamblers who bet on NCAA football games to go over the ‘total’ have been pleased to see both UCONN games easily push past the posted ‘total’.  The NCAA wagering line has this game as a pick ‘em.
