The Bearcats’ most recent win came in tournament form against SMU 61-51. In that Friday game, Cincinnati’s leading scorer was forward Kyle Washington with 15 points. Gary Clark also had a nice game for the Bearcats, doubling up on 12 points and 11 rebounds.
Over on the Memphis side, they’re sitting at 21-12 on the year. The Tigers had a rough stretch in January and February where they lost five of six games, but since have won seven out of eight appearances.
Memphis bagged another big tournament win on Friday, taking out Tulsa 67-64. In that one, Kyvon Davenport and Kareem Brewton each had 15 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and three steals between them.
The Tigers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight overall and 6-2 ATS in their last eight versus the AAC. The over is 5-1 in the Tigers’ last six neutral-site games and 9-3 in the last 12 overall.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati is 7-1 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS loss and the under is 4-1 in the Bearcats’ last five overall. The under is 4-1 in the Bearcats’ last five following a straight-up win and 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 neutral-site games.
After a run of solid offensive games, the Bearcats haven’t been terribly dominant lately with just 123 points across their last two games. That said, Cincinnati won both games versus Memphis this year 82-48 and 62-48. The Tigers have won by a combined five points across their last two games, but I think their run will certainly stop here. I’ll take Cincinnati.
