Central Florida is 4-0 against the spread in their last four home games, 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games, and 4-1 against the spread in their last five Sunday games. Cincinnati is 6-17 against the spread in their last 23 road games, 1-5 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 6-16 against the spread in their last 22 road games against a team with a winning home record.
The total is set at 127.5 but while Cincinnati plays defense, UCF doesn't so I have this one going over. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I have posted that in the Premium Area as well as the App.
