Cincinnati vs. Ohio State betting odds and game preview

Account of Like Fickell’s long association with Ohio State is Saturday a highlighted date.  Cincinnati’s head coach played and coached at Ohio State.  Since striking off on his own two years ago he has made Cincy into a top Group of Five Program.  However, this week’s college football betting matchup at his alma mater is a daunting task.  Ohio State is a top tier playoff-contending powerhouse.  If week one is any indication the Bearcats and Buckeyes are both primed for big years.

Cincinnati Bearcats

Last week Cincinnati opened the season with a 24-14 home payout over UCLA. Fickell’s Bearcats outgained the Bruins 423-218 with a 24-14 first down advantage. It was the second consecutive season that Cincinnati beat Chip Kelly’s team. Specifically, Fickell has recruited well in the rich southern Ohio area. He says he has his pick of top players within a 50-mile radius of the campus. Likewise, this has helped the Bearcats become a particularly tough defensive team. A berth in the American Athletic Conference is a distinct possibility for UC. Fickell is catching national attention as a program builder.

Players to Watch: QB Desmond Ridder (69.2% COMP, 242 YDS, 9.3 AVG, 2 TD 1 INT, 165.1 RTG), RB Michael Warren II (92 YDS, 3.5 YPC, 1 TD, 3 REC, 28 YDS, 9.0 YPC, 1 TD), Gerrid Doaks (53 yds, 5.3 YPC), WR Alec Pierce (2 REC, 59 YDS, 29.5 YPC), TE Josiah Deguara (4 REC, 53 YDS, 13.3 YPC, 1 TD)

Ohio State Buckeyes

Above all, it is a new day at Ohio State as Ryan Day takes over as head coach. Day’s first game was a 45-21 overlay win over Florida Atlantic. OSU jumped out to a 28-0 first-quarter lead before Day called off the dogs, much to the chagrin of gamblers that laid 28 points. Most important of all was the outstanding performance of quarterback Justin Fields. The Georgia quarterback threw four touchdown passes and 234 yards while rushing for 61 yards and a TD as well. In view of Day’s offensive expertise, Fields should only get better.

Players to Watch: QB Justin Fields (72% COMP, 234 YDS, 9.4 AVG, 4 TD, 0 INT, 203.4 RTG), RB JK Dobbins (91 YDS, 4.3 YPC, 1 TD), Justin Fields (61 YDS, 5.1 AVG, 1 TD), WR Binjimen Victor (2 REC, 65 YDS, 32.5 AVG, 1 TD) WR Chris Olave (4 REC, 59 YDS, 14.8 YPC, 1 TD), TE Jeremy Ruckert (4 REC, 38 YDS, 9.5 YPC, 2 TD)
