Will Rutgers's bubble burst in Cincinnati?
Both the Scarlet Knights and the Bearcats have been cover machines for their faithful followers with the visitors 5-2-1 against the spread and the home side 6-2-1. A couple of numbers to consider is that Rutgers has not won at Cincinnati in 19 years and the home side needs this win to stay bowl eligible.
The point spread which opened at -8.5 Rutgers has plummeted down to -6.5 and bettors must be impressed with the fact that the Bearcats have allowed just 9 points in their past two home dates.
