They were going to play this one as a regular season game last week and then they figured what was the point. I am not quite sure how I feel about that.
The Bearcats definitely look like the much better team. They will be looking to win by as much as possible to put some pressure on the playoff committee.
Tulsa has been a nice story all season long but all you have to do is look at that number and see that they are not really in the same class as Cincinnati.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
Tulsa has only one loss on the season, it was in the opener against Oklahoma State. They have been very good but not elite.
The defense has been very stingy and better than expected this season. It is a nice story but I am not sure it is enough here.
However, that is probably what I said before Tulsa beat UCF and SMU and even Navy. They have played a shortened schedule but they are not a fluke.
If they are going to stay in this one they are going to have to be stong on defense and find a way to score. They are not a dynamic offensive team.
Nobody saw this team in this game so that is a win in itself. Absent a Cincy meltdown I just don’t see how Tulsa gets it done. Again I probably wrote that before.
The Bearcats have one of the best statistical profiles this season. They have yet to lose a game and they are winning by an average of 25ppg. I would love to see them win and get a shot.
QB Desmond Ridder is not elite. He is consistent though. He has had only one bad game this season. He is a true dual threat too. 11 TDs scored on the ground.
The defense has been impressive all season long. Given what we have seen of them against the better offenses in the AAC I am not expecting too much trouble here.
Everything is lining up for Cincinnati to finish undefeated. Tulsa might battle but I am not sure they are a real threat to that.

This is one of the bigger numbers of Championship Weekend. It is also one where I just don’t see ant real value with the underdog.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Cincinnati -14.5
That hook could be a thing but only if this game is closer than I think. I am not expecting Cincinnati to destroy Tulsa. More of a methodical beatdown.
Tulsa is going to be hard-pressed to put many points on the board against Cincy. That is going to be their downfall. I am not sure they find the end zone.
