Why Ohio State can cover

Ohio State opened the season with three straight wins, despite having a lineup that includes four freshmen and three transfers. The Buckeyes are going to continue to improve early in the year as they develop chemistry, especially after facing their first legitimate opponent on Monday. West Virginia transfer Sean McNeil scored 22 points in the loss to San Diego State, with 20 of them coming in the second half.

McNeil had only scored 19 points in the first three games of the season, so it was a huge improvement for him personally. Star freshman forward Brice Sensabaugh leads Ohio State with 17.0 points and 5.5 rebounds per game after scoring 17 points and grabbing five boards on Monday. McNeil, Zed Key and Justice Sueing are all scoring in double figures as well, giving the Buckeyes a balanced attack.

Why Cincinnati can cover

Cincinnati is built to play well early in the season, as four of its top five scorers are seniors. The Buckeyes are expected to improve as the season goes along, but the Bearcats have the edge right now. Senior guard Landers Nolley II poured in a career-high 33 points in a thriller against Arizona on Monday, bumping his season average up to a team-best 17.8 points per game.

Senior guard David DeJulius is averaging 16.4 points and 3.6 assists, while senior guard Jeremiah Davenport is adding 11.6 points and 3.8 rebounds. The Bearcats shot 62.9% from the floor in the second half of Monday’s loss, but it wasn’t quite enough to overcome a double-digit halftime deficit. They have some momentum coming into this game against an inexperienced team, though.
