- Cincinnati moves to 7-0 with another impressive win.
- The Bearcats pull away in the second half to cover this large spread
- The strength of the Bearcats offense pushes this total to over
The Cincinnati Bearcats look to move to 7-0 on the season as they take on the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday in Maryland. This is a matchup of two teams in the American Athletic Conference that are headed in opposite directions.
Cincinnati comes into this game with a perfect 6-0 record on the year, and they have moved all the way up to the number 3 ranked team in the latest AP poll. The Bearcats look like a team with a real shot at the College Football Playoff, but they can’t afford a loss.
Navy has gone just 1-5 on the season, and they have also lost two straight games. The Midshipmen have been competitive in some of their losses this season, but this will be their toughest test of season up to this point.

Cincinnati vs Navy Prediction: Spread
Cincinnati has been extremely dominant for much of the season, and that is why the spread for this matchup is set at 28.0 total points. The Bearcats have an offense that can put up points in a hurry, and their defense has been terrific as well.
Navy is scoring just 17.5 points per game this season, while their defense is allowing over 32 points this game. The Midshipmen are going to have to play extremely well on both sides of the ball to keep this one close.
Cincinnati just has so many weapons and they are eventually going to wear down Navy. This game could be close for a half, but it will be all Bearcats in the second half.

In saying that, Navy is not going to win this game. Even if the Midshipmen play their best game of the year, Cincinnati still has more talent and will pull away with a victory.
It’s best to stay away from the moneyline on this game entirely, but Navy would be the only bet worth making.

Cincinnati vs Navy Prediction: Total
Navy wants to slow this game down on Saturday afternoon in an effort to keep it close. The Midshipmen are averaging over 215 rushing yards per game, but they also don’t do anything through the air.
Cincinnati is going to hit on a number of big plays in this matchup as Navy doesn’t really have a chance to slow them down. The Midshipmen won’t provide much offense on their own, but Cincinnati might hit the total alone.
Cincinnati has played in just one game all season that was less than 48 total points, and this total will go over.
- Free Prediction: Over/Under 48.5
