At 16-4 and the #1 seed in the AAC tournament, a lot of people were expecting Wichita State to breeze through the weekend. They barely got to the weekend though, needing a comeback for a 68-67 win over USF.
The Shockers were -11 point favorites in their opener – does the close game give Cincinnati hope? The Bearcats won 74-71 over SMU, who was playing 30 minutes from their campus and were -5 favorites.
Cincinnati has gone a cool 7-3 over their last 10 down the stretch. Their losses came against Houston and Memphis, a couple of top 3 teams in the AAC Conference as well as against SEC foe Vanderbilt.
It was a nice win against SMU to kick off the tournament for Cincinnati. The Bearcats actually beat the Mustangs 76-69 on the road earlier this season as +3 point underdogs.
It was a pretty balanced attack vs. the Mustangs, with four starters hitting double figures for the Bearcats. Jeremiah Davenport led the way with 19, the fifth time in the last six games he’s hit 14+.
Cincinnati did have the #4 offense in the AAC this season putting up 71.0 ppg. The only problem with that is Wichita State was 2nd, with a little better output of 73.1. The Bearcats also had the conference’s worst defense.
Wichita State Shockers
Has Wichita State gotten their scare out of the way and now it’s time to get down to business – or was the close game with USF a sign of some issues? Cincinnati beat USF twice this year, including by 17 in the regular season finale.
The name of the game is stacking W’s this time of year, and it doesn’t matter how you get them. Sure the Shockers looked bad in leading for just 3:21 vs. South Florida, but they’re still just a win away from the championship game.
The Shockers have now won eight straight games dating back to the regular season. That’s nice momentum to have up against the AAC’s worst defense in Cincinnat.
Wichita State may have the best player on the court Saturday night as well, as Tyson Etienne pumped in 20 points to lead the win over USF. It was his 2nd straight going for 20+ and 5th in the last 8.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Bearcats are 20-43 ATS last 63 overall
- Bearcats are 5-21-1 last 27 Saturday games
- Over is 16-5 in Bearcats last 21 overall
- Underdog is 4-1 ATS last 5 head to head meetings
Free Cincinnati Bearcats vs. Wichita State Shockers NCAAB Prediction:
Wichita State did not impress anybody with the one point win over South Florida, but they’ve got a great chance to get things right vs. the Bearcats. Etienne can dominate, and that line looks very low for some reason.
The winner of this game gets either the 2 seed Houston or #3 Memphis. It would make sense that the Shockers would make it to the championship round, having two of the top three teams battling regardless.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Wichita State -4
SMU hadn’t played since February 8th and still only lost by three to Cincinnati.
