(The Spread) – A pair of 5-3 teams will square off at Peden Stadium on Wednesday night as Ohio hosts Temple at 8:00PM ET.

Odds: Oddsmakers have installed visiting Temple as a 3.5-point road favorite over Ohio, while the over/under total for this game is currently sitting at 47.5 points. The Owls are 3-1 on the road this year while the Bobcats are 3-1 at home.

Line Movement: The line opened at Temple –4.5 at the Las Vegas Hilton but despite the public’s backing of the Owls the spread has dipped a full point to 3.5 at most books. The over/under opened at 47.5 at most books in Vegas, so it hasn’t budged there. That said, offshore books did have the over/under listed at 44.5 at one point so the jump to 47.5 is noteworthy.
