Bet Memphis at Houston
Houston is 8-2 this season and 6-3 against the point spread odds. The Cougars are coming off a 37-32 loss to Central Florida last week, but the Cougars are unbeaten at home this season.

Memphis has won three of the last four meetings with Houston. The Tigers are 2-8 on the year and 1-8 against the point spread odds. Memphis is winless on the road this year.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have made Houston 23-point home favorites over Memphis on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 75.5.

Houston has no issues scoring points, averaging 41 points per-game behind the play of Case Keenum, who leads the nation with 4,194 yards passing and 31 touchdowns. The issue for the Cougars is on defense, where Houston is giving up 30.8 points per-game and allowing 213.3 rushing yards per-game.

Memphis is scoring 21.8 points per-game and has a passing attack led by Will Hudgens that throws for 238 yards per-game. On defense, the Tigers are giving up 33 points per-game and over 250 yards per-game through the air.

The key to this game will be Memphis’ ability to score on Houston and keep up with Keenum. The Tigers have a formidable running back in Curtis Steele, who has rushed for 847 yards and nine touchdowns. Houston has not had points spread odds this large all season, and trends shot that Memphis has faired well against the Cougars. With the spread so large, we suggest a pick of Memphis with the points and the under with the point total so high.
