Memphis wins third straight

The Memphis football team is riding a three-game win streak following the 54-48 win over SMU at home two weeks ago. The Tigers remain in the AAC chase as they are 8-1 overall, 4-1 in conference play, 6-3 against the spread and 7-2 with the over.

The Tigers have one of the stronger offenses in the nation, as they are averaging 41.1 points and 475.4 yards per game. Defensively, Memphis is giving up 25.8 points and 394.8 yards per game. Quarterback Brady White has thrown for 2,511 yards and 23 touchdowns this year to lead the offense while Kenneth Gainewell has rushed for 1,067 yards and 12 scores. Damonte Coxie is the leading receiver with 44 receptions for 672 yards and five touchdowns.

Houston drops another

The Houston football team is coming off a 44-29 loss at UCF two weeks ago for a second straight loss and a third loss in four games. The Cougars are now 3-6 on the season, 1-4 in the AAC, 5-4 against the spread and 4-4-1 with the over/under total

Houston has struggled defensively this year, allowing 32.6 points and 460.6 yards per contest. Offensively, the Cougars are putting up 30.7 points and 410.8 yards per contest. Clayton Tune has thrown for 894 yards and six touchdowns to lead the offense while Kyle Porter has rushed for 525 yards and three scores. Marquez Stevenson is the leading receiver with 36 catches for 666 yards and six touchdowns.

College Football Betting Trends


The Tigers have hit the over in six straight games overall and in seven straight AAC contests.


The Cougars are 4-1 with the over in their last five games in November and in seven of their last eight games following a cover.


These two have hit the over in three straight meetings with Memphis scoring at least 42 in all three games. That could happen again this year with Memphis likely to put up a fair amount of points on Houston. However, I do question if the Cougars are going to be able to put up many points. They haven’t looked great on offense in recent games and aren’t playing with a lot of talent at the skill positions. With Memphis on a bye week, I expect the Tigers defense to execute and hold Houston to a point total that will allow the under to hit.

College Football Week 12 Prediction: Memphis/Houston Under 68.5
