Houston Cougars

The Cougars are 20-9 against the spread in their last 29 road games but they failed to cover in all four of their last four games when favored on the road like today.

Memphis Tigers

The Tigers have covered in five of their last seven games and are 4-1 against the number in their last five games as an underdog, although they’re just 3-7 at the window in their last 10 games when listed as a home dog.


The under has been too profitable in recent Houston games to avoid the total. The under is 10-2 in the Cougars’ last 12 games overall, is 8-1 in their last nine games when they’re coming off a win and has cashed in five of their last six road games as well. On the other side, the under is 16-7 in the Tigers’ last 23 games when they’re coming off a win and is 5-2 in their last seven home games when they’re squaring off against an opponent that has a winning record on the road.
