TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21ST
#343 CINCINNATI (-5′) over Central Florida at 3:30 PM EST
In order for UC to have any shot at sneaking into the four-team College Football Playoff, the Bearcats will need to close in convincing fashion. That means blowouts over the Golden Knights (on Saturday) and Golden Hurricane (on December 12th) are absolutely essential. Central Florida enters this huge revenge battle off three consecutive straight up wins. That fact is noted. However, the Knights lost to the only good teams they faced this year (Tulsa and Memphis) and they’ll be outclassed in this matchup.
If you want to win a big game, you better bring a solid defense to the table. Cincinnati can do that. Central Florida can’t. The Bearcats are allowing an average of 12.4 points and 300.9 total yards per game this season. In comparison, the Golden Knights have been slammed for an average of 28.7 points and 447.9 total yards per game. Head coach Luke Fickell has UC firing on all cylinders right now too. The Bearcats own a phenomenal 29-5 SU and 20-12 ATS record in their last 34 games including an elite 13-5 SU and 11-5 ATS in this run priced as an underdog or a favorite of -7 or less. Finally, when going into revenge, Cincy sports a reliable 11-0 SU and 8-3 ATS mark in its last 11 tries.
Respect is certainly given to a UCF offense that averages 44.0 points and 619.1 yards per game. Unfortunately, the Bearcats “D” limited the Knights to 28 points and 423 yards in last year’s 27-24 victory and Coach Fickell’s boys won’t be intimidated when they take the field at the Bounce House on Saturday afternoon. To make matters worse, when priced as a home underdog and tackling an opponent that enters without rest, Central Florida holds a shocking 2-20 SU and 8-14 ATS record. In addition, when playing in their last home game, the Golden Knights own a disturbing 1-8 ATS mark provided they take the field with a little steam off two or more straight up wins.
The Bearcats are on a mission right now and they’re not about to let the defenseless Knights stand in their way. Take Cincinnati. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
