Tulsa edged twice

The Tulsa football team opened the season with a win over Central Arkansas but then suffered back-to-back single-digit losses to Texas and Arkansas State. The Golden Hurricanes are 1-2 against the spread and 2-1 with the under heading into conference play.

This season, Tulsa is giving up 28.0 points and 376.7 yards per game. They are allowing under 200 passing yards per contest. On offense, Tulsa is averaging 26.3 points and 387.3 yards per game. Luke Skipper has thrown for 521 yards and four touchdowns with three interceptions to lead the offense while Shamari Brooks has 310 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

Temple gets on the board

After losing to Villanova and Buffalo by one score each, the Owls bounced back last week with an impressive 35-14 win at Maryland. Temple is 1-2 against the spread this season while going 2-1 with the under.

The Owls are averaging 27 points per game on offense so far while giving up just 23 points per game. Their defense is allowing only 197.3 passing yards per contest. On offense, Ryquell Armstead is leading the offense with 256 rushing yards while quarterback Frank Nutile has thrown for 401 yards and four touchdowns with four interceptions.

College Football Betting Trends

Tulsa

The Golden Hurricanes have hit the under in four straight road games and in five of their last six conference contests.

Temple

The Owls have hit the over in four straight conference games but they have hit the under in 10 of their last 13 games on grass.

Prediction:

These two have hit the over in their last two meetings, including a 43-22 win for Temple last week. Temple showed its offensive potential last week in the win at Maryland. I expect the Owls can do some scoring this Thursday. On defense, I would expect Tulsa to be able to find some points in this one. They have scored at least 20 points in all three games this year.
