Why Cincinnati can cover
Cincinnati is coming off a disappointing loss to Miami (OH), but that has created value on the Bearcats as home underdogs on Saturday. They were outstanding in their first two games, starting with a 66-13 win over Eastern Kentucky in Week 1. Cincinnati went on the road in Week 2, upsetting Pittsburgh as a 6.5-point underdog in a 27-21 final.
The Bearcats racked up 538 yards of offense last week, but they had to settle for four field-goal attempts to go along with two turnovers. Quarterback Emory Jones has completed 66.3% of his passes for 735 yards and seven touchdowns. Cincinnati is 18-2 in its last 20 home games and is 11-4 in its last 15 games overall, while Oklahoma has failed to cover the spread in five straight Week 4 games.
Why Oklahoma can cover
Oklahoma opened the season with blowout wins over Arkansas State and SMU before going on the road and demolishing Tulsa last week.
