Two vastly overrated offensive teams are going to do battle tonight in the Queen City, and the end result probably won’t see either team beyond the mid-60s in all likelihood. The Fighting Irish are averaging 77.6 points per game this year, but they haven’t left the Joyce Center, save for a couple of neutral site games yet. This is their first test on the road, and it comes on a night where their football team is playing for the BCS National Championship, the biggest prize in collegiate sports. Meanwhile, the Bearcats have been fine defensively, but their offense has crashed back to earth over the course of the last few weeks. They only scored 52 in a loss to St. John’s, and they only put up 54 in a loss to New Mexico. In fact, the Bearcats haven’t scored more than 70 points in a game since December 15th. That’s why they’re just 2-6 for ‘over’ bettors on the year. Now factor in Cincinnati’s 20-8 record for ‘under’ bettors in its last 28 home games, and Notre Dame’s even more impressive 20-7-1 mark for ‘under’ bettors in its last 28 road games, then toss in the fact that three of the last four in the regular season in this series have failed to reach the ‘total’ as well, and the makings are ripe for a game in the 120s, not the 130s or more.
