Xavier (7-2) takes on undefeated #11 Cincinnati (10-0) Wednesday night at 7:00ET. NBA odds are found at Bovada sportsbook.
Xavier flexed some muscle early on this year beating Butler during the first week of the season and has played well against some top competition en route to a 7-2 SU and 2-3-1 ATS mark for the season. Their only losses on the year were a neutral site loss to Pacific an overtime loss on the road to Vanderbilt. Xavier rebounded from the Vanderbilt loss by defeating Kansas State by seven points in their last outing.
Cincinnati is rolling and is now 10-0 SU and 4-2 ATS. The only question mark on their season so far has been their strength of schedule. The only major wins versus major conference opponents were Alabama and Oregon, not necessarily mentioned among the elite programs year in and year out.
Cincinnati is an 8 ½ point favorite. Xavier plays tough and is a hard-nosed opponent. Look for Xavier to spring the upset. Take Xavier +8 ½ at sports books.
