Bradley vs Cincinnati prediction

Cincinnati is going to get the benefit of the doubt because it’s the more talented team and at home, where it’s 15-5 SU on the season. However, Bradley isn’t an underdog very often, and it’s a well-balanced team that’s produced six road wins. Bradley is a top-50 offense in field goal percentage and three point percentage, while the defense is top-100 in points allowed and field goal percentage allowed. The Bradley Braves are too good of a team to turn in the underdog role. Give me the road dog in Bradley.
