Cincinnati Bearcats 2021 Season
Cincinnati did just about everything right in 2020. The Bearcats went 9-1, were undefeated in the American Athletic Conference, set a Group of 5 record with its College Football Playoff ranking and came within a few plays of a Peach Bowl victory. Now the program is looking to make history, trying to become the first G5 team in the CFP. And with odds as favorable as +1100, breaking into the top four seems like a real possibility.
Quarterback Desmond Ridder is back after winning AAC Offensive Player of the Year. Ridder averaged 288.8 scrimmage yards per game and scored 31 total touchdowns. He’ll also have Jerome Ford in his backfield. The Alabama transfer piled up 483 yards and eight scores on the ground at 6.6 yards per carry as a change-of-pace back. Now he’s the every-down guy.
Tight end Josh Whyle figures to be a focal point of the passing attack once again. Whyle led the team in yards (353) and touchdowns (6) last year on just 28 catches. Alec Pierce is healthy after being limited to six games. Even in a shortened season, Pierce had 315 yards and three scores, averaging 18.5 yards per reception.
As good as Cincinnati’s offense was in 2020, its defense was even better and the Bearcats returned almost everyone on that side of the ball. Lineman Myjai Sanders anchors the pass rush after racking up seven sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss in 10 games. Did we mention he also broke up five passes? Then there’s the secondary. Cornerbacks Coby Bryant and Ahmad Gardner could be one of the best tandems in the country after recording a combined seven interceptions and 13 pass breakups last year.
Betting on the Cincinnati Bearcats
Cincinnati went 9-1 last year, making it one of the better picks in college football on the moneyline, which is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Cincinnati -160
- SMU +1 80
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Cincinnati the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Bearcats odds would mean every $160 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the SMU moneyline was set at +180, meaning a $100 wager would profit $180.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet on Cincinnati’s moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Cincinnati would need to win by three points for that bet to be successful. The risk may be greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Bearcats went 9-0 overall in the regular season, but were slightly worse against the spread at 5-4. Cincinnati’s nine wins came by an average of 23.3 points. Here’s an example:
- Cincinnati -2.5 (-110)
- Memphis +2.5 ( -110)
In this situation, Cincinnati is favored by 2.5 points against Memphis. If the Bearcats win the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on Cincinnati would come with a payout of $90.91. If the Tigers won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say Cincinnati plays Tulsa and the over/under is set at 70 points. A wager on the over would require the Bearcats and Golden Hurricane to score 71 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 69 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 70 points scored.
In 2020, Cincinnati averaged 37.5 points and allowed just 16.8 points. The Bearcats hit the over in 55.4% of their games last season.

Cincinnati Prop Bets
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out an example below:
- Desmond Ridder 2021 passing yards: 2,650.5
FAQ: Here’s how prop betting works
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Cincinnati Bearcats odds to win the AAC
- Cincinnati Bearcats odds to reach the College Football Playoff
- Cincinnati Bearcats odds to win the College Football Playoff
- Desmond Ridder’s odds to win the Heisman Trophy
If you think the Bearcats can break through to the Playoff or even win the CFP championship, this is the place to bet. These types of bets are called futures, and they're just wagers on things that settle at the end of the year. For a full list of college football futures, click or tap here.
