NCAA Tournament Cincinnati Bearcats vs Kansas State Wildcats Start Time, Betting Odds

The Kansas State Wildcats are taking on the Cincinnati Bearcats in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday night. The game is scheduled for a 7:27 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on truTV. The college basketball odds for the game have the Bearcats favored to pick up the win.

College Basketball Odds
Cincinnati -3.5
Total: 130.5 points

Kansas State looked solid against Wake Forest in the First Four on Wednesday. Bruce Weber’s team took advantage of a bad defensive Demon Deacon team and rolled up 95 points in the victory.

There’s no way they get to 95 points against this Cincinnati team. The Bearcats made every opponent grind out possessions and their length and athleticism cause problems for everybody. Opponents score only 60.5 points per game against Cincinnati, which ranks fourth-best in the country.

Despite a loss to SMU in the American title game, Cincinnati had been rolling with four consecutive wins. Mick Cronin’s club is led by Jacob Evans and Kyle Washington at better than 13 points per game. Cincinnati is not going to amaze you with the basketball, but they are solid enough, coupled with the defense, to play and put up some solid wins.

Kansas State shot well against Wake Forest, but Cincinnati is not going to make it easy. The Bearcats defense will win this one for them.
