College Football Betting Trends

South Florida

The road team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. South Florida is 0-5 ATS in its last five games after allowing 200 or more rushing yards in its previous game.

Houston

The Cougars are 4-1 ATS in their last five games on turf. Houston is 1-4 ATS in its last five games following an ATS win.

Prediction:

South Florida has enjoyed a very stong season, but the spread says a lot here. The Cougars are the more talented team with a powerful offense led by the dynamic King. I expect Houston to win decisively here. Bet accordingly.
