Cincinnati Bearcats vs SMU Mustangs Predictions 3/3/2022

 

The SMU Mustangs lost their two-game unbeaten run and fell to 20-7 on the season after falling 75-61 to the 14th-ranked Houston Cougars on Sunday. SMU labored on the road against a powerful Houston defense and couldn’t come back after falling behind 37-22 at halftime.

  • The University of Southern Methodist Mustangs is 13-6 ATS in their last 19 matches.

Cincinnati Bearcats vs SMU Mustangs. The NCAAB pick for this game is the SMU Mustangs. Cincinnati is good on defense this year, ranking 70th in scoring defense and 29th in defensive FG percent; but, the Bearcats lost six of their past seven games and have faltered offensively, averaging just 59.8 points per game during their four-game losing streak.

 

SMU had no responses for Cincinnati earlier this season in a 77-60 road loss, but I’m taking SMU to cover this mid-range home spread because of their perfect 14-0 home record and my belief that their defense, which ranks 28th in defensive FG percent, will cause trouble for a struggling Cincinnati offense. The SMU Mustangs will win to a predicted score of 74-65.
