Cincinnati Bearcats at UCLA Bruins Prediction

I don’t think the Bearcats have the offense to keep up with the Bruins who have averaged 90.6 points per game overall this season and 84.1 on neutral courts. Cincinnati’s shooters were on fire in their opener against K State shooting a ridiculous 62.8% from the field and 45.5% from behind the arc. If they can come up with anything near that they have a chance at the upset win making a wager on the total and added play.
