Cincinnati vs Miami OH Prediction: Spread

The Bearcats are looking to bounce back after their loss to Georgia in their first-ever New Year’s Day bowl game. They had a perfect season last year and are looking to do it again. Their defense will be a major factor this season. Bryan Cook, a senior safety, will be one to watch this season in helping the defense.

Last season was his first full season with the Bearcats and recorded 26 tackles and 19 solo stops. He will be healthy this season and looking to help the Bearcats defense stop the Redhawks. The Bearcats defense last season was ranked 8th in fewest points and currently owns college football’s longest streak of most consecutive games forcing a turnover.

Free Prediction: Bearcats (-22.5)

Cincinnati vs Miami OH Prediction: Moneyline

The last matchup between these two teams was in 2019 and it was a close game. Despite the early lead, the Redhawks lost. In this game, the Bearcats are looking for 15 straight games and will get the win in week one.

The Redhawks can keep things close early on but will be outplayed and scored by the Bearcats. Both teams have good defenses but for the Redhawks, it will not be enough to stop the Bearcats in the second half of the game.

Free Prediction: Bearcats 3rd Quarter money line

Cincinnati vs Miami OH Prediction: Total

The total of this Ohio matchup is 51.5. In recent games, the total has hit under each time. In the last 6 of 7 games against each other, the total has been under. With Miami’s offense this season looking to start off on a good note they will start the scoring early.

It will take some time for the Bearcats defense to kick in as they allowed 10 points in the first quarter the last time they played the Redhawks. But allow them to get things going and they will stop the Redhawks from scoring closer to the second half of the game.

Free Prediction: Under 51.5

Prop Predictions

This game will be won by the Bearcats. With the home field advantage and crowd, they will just feed off the energy. With a season record of 9-1, they are looking to increase their current rank and find a way to make it into the college football playoffs.

The hunt is close for them and being in the 8th spot now it’s only a matter of time before they climb into the top 4. The team still feels the sting from the 24-21 loss to Georgia in the Peach Bowl last season. They are looking to come back this season with a better performance than ever.
