Health could be an issue for both teams. Cincinnati's Cumberland has needed rest with his calf, but he he will most likely play although not 100%. Xavier's Goodin has been ill this week and missed the Ohio game but is probable for this one and Tyrique Jones took a tumble late that required Xavier Athletic Trainer David Fluker's attention and his status is uncertain. All things considered, I think this is going to be a close game and I want the points.50%

Cincinnati is 8-1 on the season and has been soundly beating teams and his 4-1 ATS last 5. But Xavier is a solid team and they will be up to play today in this "rivalry" game. Again I just think 7 is too many in what should be a close game. I like Xavier.70%

Lots of bad blood with these two teams so should be a good game to watch. Cincy's got a hella good defense but their offense is less than average. This is Xavier's first road game so would be nice to know how they are going to play away games. Bit of a shot in the dark but going with the points.

Down The Drive: Game Preview: Cincinnati Bearcats vs. Xavier Musketeers
As we've traversed the early season, sometimes it's taken some extra effort to get amped up for every game. When the opponent on the other side of the court is an Arkansas-Pine Bluff or a North Carolina Central, the hype level is just lacking.
We don't need to worry about that on Saturday. The Cincinnati Bearcats are playing easily their most important game of the season, as they host the Xavier Musketeers in the 86th rendition of the Crosstown Shootout.
This is a rivalry with a history filled with blood, sweat and tears, and it might just be in that order.
