SMU Mustangs vs. Cincinnati Bearcats

Where: FedExForum, Memphis, TN

When: Friday, March 15, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Cincinnati Bearcats will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Houston when they take on the SMU Mustangs in the quarterfinals of the AAC tournament on Friday night.

Mustangs Going For Third Consecutive Win

The Mustangs struggled at the end of the season but they have looked good so far in the AAC tournament and have won their last two games. They will try to keep things going and pick up their third win in a row when they face the Bearcats on Friday.

The Bearcats won both regular-season games against the Mustangs, but the Mustangs were in both games and have to like their odds to win this game.

SMU is an average offensive team that is putting up 71.8 points per game. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 33 percent from three-point range.

Jahmal McMurray leads the way for the Mustangs with 17.8 points and 2.5 assists per game. Ethan Chargois is averaging 12.5 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, while Jimmy Whitt Jr. is averaging 12.1 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.

The Mustangs have fared better on defense, holding opponents to 70.1 points per game. They gave up 68 points per game in their last two games and will need to keep playing well on defense if they want to get past the Bearcats on Friday.

Bearcats Going For Sixth Win In Eight Games

The Bearcats played well this season and finished second in the AAC standings. However, they closed out the season on a two-game losing streak and will try to get back on track with a win over the Mustangs.

Cincinnati has played well offensively, averaging 71.6 points per game. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range.

Jarron Cumberland leads the way for the Bearcats with 18.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. Keith Williams is averaging 10.6 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, while Tre Scott is averaging 8.9 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

The Bearcats are one of the best defensive teams in the country, holding opponents to 62 points per game, which is 11th best. They gave up 85 points to Houston in their last game and will need to play better to get past the Mustangs.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

I am very passionate about sports, so I kind of feel bad that I get paid to do this. As someone who minored in Mathematics, I have a lot of faith in numbers, and make my picks based on stats and not emotions. I've been successfully picking winners for quite some time, so stick with me if you want to get paid.
