Xavier Is One Of The Best Bets In The Nation

The Xavier Musketeers have opened the season hot on the court and at the window. Xavier is 6-1 ATS this season and an astounding 13-2 ATS dating back to last season. Trevon Bluiett and company will be looking for their second-straight win and cover against a ranked team when they take on the Cincinnati Bearcats Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of Xavier's last 7 games.
  • Cincinnati is 2-12 ATS in its last 14 games against the Big East.
  • Xavier is 6-2 SU in its last 8 games against teams with winning records.

Xavier owns one of the best offenses in the nation but the scoring has been top heavy. Trevon Bluiett and J.P. Macura have accounted for nearly 40% of the points scored and over a third of their shots. The team has also started working harder on their defense after surrendering 102 points in their loss to Arizona State – something that was apparent in their most recent game vs Baylor.

Mick Cronin’s team will always play great defense but this Cincinnati team might have the best offense he has ever had. The Bearcats are averaging 87.9 points per game while shooting 49% from the floor. Depth in scoring is their biggest asset with five different players averaging at least 9.0 points.
