Predictions:
The Knights’ victory over Houston was mighty impressive because not only did they claim the victory as a 7-point underdog, they also beat a Cougars’ squad that had not loss a home game in its last 33 contests. The Bearcats have struggled to please their backers on the road of late by going 3-7 against the numbers in their last 10 games away from Cincinnati. Momentum is on the Knights’ side coming off possibly their biggest win in school history, and they have shown a capacity to compete with anyone. Take Knights +2½ and the over.
