Harvard vs. Cincinnati betting matchup, East Region prediction

Harvard is an underdog, but the computer predicts they will upset slumping No. 5 seed Cincinnati.

A 5 seed is in trouble in the East Region, as Cincinnati is a 3-point favorite taking on 12-seed Harvard.

Cincinnati went 27-6 SU this season to earn an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament. The Bearcats rank sixth in the nation on defense allowing only 58.3 points per game, leading the team to go 20-7 on the UNDER this season.

But Cincinnati went just 3-8 ATS over its last 11 games.

The Harvard Crimson are a dangerous 12-seed, amassing a 26-4 SU and 16-7-1 ATS record this season en route to an Ivy League title. Like Cincinnati, Harvard has a stingy defense that allowed only 60.5 PPG this season.

The UNDER is 9-1 in Harvard's last 10 games as an underdog.

The computer is picking a 65-62 win for Harvard.
