The trends don’t lend a lot to which team is the better play tonight, but we like Temple’s underrated defense to give Ohio’s offense so trouble, especially considering the Owls held a pretty good Western Michigan offense to only a touchdown a few weeks ago. Both of these teams are coming off a bye and both are starting inexperienced quarterbacks this year, so we lean towards the under. Both offenses might take time to warm up and even if they do, the Owls have the defense to shut down the Bobcats late. We like Temple 20-10 over the Bobcats, as well as the under 42.5.
