Matchup History

Memphis’ 75-68 win over Cincinnati back on January 22nd, 2023, made it four straight wins for Memphis in this head-to-head matchup.


Cincinnati is 16-7 ATS in their last 23 games overall and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss while the over is 5-0-1 in their last 6 games overall. Memphis is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 home games while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 games following an ATS win.


I’m sticking with the Bearcats here. I get why Memphis is favored at home and this Tigers team is fully capable of piling on the points, but both teams have found themselves playing close games as of late and I think this one could come down to who gets the last shot. I’ll take a shot with the Bearcats and the points here.
