Cincinnati at SMU (-6.5, 137) (7 pm ET, ESPN)

Cincinnati got some confidence back after blowing out Tulsa 76-57 on Saturday. The Bearcats had lost their previous two home games because of some serious defensive slippage. SMU is playing with a chip on their shoulder because of the ridiculousness of them being banned from any post-season basketball. The Mustangs are 13-0 SU and they are playing each game like it’s their last. This is one of the best games of the week to watch.

Both teams are strong on both ends of the court. SMU is averaging 82.8 points per game (versus opponents that allow just 71.0 ppg), while Cincinnati is scoring 77.5 ppg (versus opponents allowing jut 71.4 ppg). Both defenses have been strong as well, with the Mustangs giving up just 62.4 ppg and 38.8% FG (versus opponents that average 73.2 ppg and 43.6%). Meanwhile, the Bearcats allow just 61.9 points per game and 37.9% FG (versus opponents that average 72.1 ppg and 43.2%).
