According to odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, the Cincinnati Bearcats opened as double digit underdogs prior to facing the BYU Cougars!
BYU enters the matchup with a 12-1 record that includes a win over San Diego State, and is led by star senior shooting guard Jaxson Robinson.
The Bearcats are 10.5-point underdogs against BYU with the over/under currently set at 150.5 total points according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Wes Miller's team should stay competitive but it's certainly going to be difficult to take down one of the conference's top ranked programs.
Cincinnati Basketball: Bearcats open as double digit underdogs against BYU
Cincinnati is the 40th highest rated team in the nation and 10th ranked in the Big 12 according to the most recently updated KenPom rankings.
Following losses to in-state rivals Dayton and Xavier last month, the Bearcats continued to struggle when facing high level competition.
It will be important for the Bearcats to contain BYU's high-powered offensive attack and limit Robinson from getting quality shot attempts!
The Cougars are undefeated at home this year so it will certainly be a challenge for Cincinnati to pull off an upset in the hostile environment.
