Temple looking to stop the bleeding

The Temple football team has lost back-to-back games to SMU and UCF over recent weeks to drop to 5-3 on the season. The Owls are 2-2 in the AAC, 4-4 against the spread and 5-3 with the over.

The Owls are average on both offense and defense this year, as neither unit is great but also isn’t terrible. The Temple offense is putting up 27.6 points and 402.6 yards per game while the defense is allowing 27.8 points and 403.1 yards per contest. Anthony Russo is leading the team with 1,873 yards and 16 touchdowns with eight interceptions while Re’Mahn Davis is the leading rusher with 655 yards and five touchdowns. Branden Mack is the leading receiver with 43 catches for 629 yards and five scores.

USF trying to heat up

After a slow start to the year, South Florida has won three of its last four to gain some momentum. That includes a 45-20 win at ECU on Oct. 26. The Bulls are now 4-4 on the year, 2-2 in the AAC, 5-3 against the spread and 4-3-1 with the over.

The Bulls have struggled with their offense this year, averaging 26.1 points and 353.6 yards per game. Defensively, USF is allowing 28.4 points and 384.9 yards per contest. Jordan McCloud has been the leading passer with 776 yards and 10 touchdowns, but has been dealing with an ankle injury. He is expected to play on Thursday. McCloud also has 242 rushing yards with four touchdowns, while Jordan Cronkite has 587 rushing yards and four scores. Mitchell Wilcox is the leading receiver with 15 catches for 254 yards and four touchdowns.

College Football Betting Trends

Temple

The Owls are 6-2 with the over in their last eight games in November and 5-2 with the over with their last seven road games.

South Florida

The Bulls are 4-0-1 with the over in their last five games on grass and 17-6 with the over in their last 23 games against a winning team.

Prediction:

These two have hit the under in their last two meetings as the losing team has been held to 17 points or less. While USF has seen a bit of a surge as of late, that has come against the likes of ECU, Connecticut and BYU. When the Bulls faced Navy, they scored just three points in a 35-2 loss. Temple has lost back-to-back games, but they were against the top two teams in the conference. Temple is still the gatekeeper of the AAC and that showed in a win at home over Memphis. I expect the Owls to be able to handle this USF offense just fine. Temple isn’t an offense that’s going to put up a big number either, so look for the under to hit here.
