Injury to Watch

None. Both teams enter play relatively healthy.

Betting Strategy

The home dog always provides some value and since switching to a zone, Memphis has been stingier defensively. That said, the Cougars are scoring at will and the Tigers have major issues from 3-point land. Houston is also 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games and is 3-0-1 against the number in its last four games coming off a win, while the Tigers are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600.
