Houston Is An ATS Machine On The Road

The Houston Cougars have their first true road game of the season when they take on the Cincinnati Bearcats at Nippert Stadium on Thursday. It has become second nature for Houston to cover the spread on the road, as the Cougars are 14-1-1 ATS in their past 16 road games.

  • Houston is 1-5 SU in their past 6 games against Cincinnati.
  • Cincinnati is 5-0 SU in their past 5 games at Nippert Stadium.
  • Cincinnati is 11-3-1 ATS in their past 15 games within the AAC.

Despite being without starting quarterback Greg Ward Jr. for their Week 2 matchup against Lamar, Houston cruised to an easy 42-0 victory. Ward’s health will be a critical factor in this game, as Houston has a short week to get ready and there is a good chance the quarterback won’t be 100 percent.

Cincinnati has started the season 2-0 SU thanks to the steady play of quarterback Hayden Moore and a defense that has allowed just 27 points so far. Moore has completed 60.6 percent of his passes while throwing for five touchdowns and just one pick this season. The defense has feasted on lesser opponents, as the Bearcats have already recorded seven interceptions.
