The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Cougars are now 7-point home favorites over the Tigers after Memphis opened as a 6-point road underdog. As for the total, it opened at 73 before dropping to 71.

The Records

Navy spoiled Memphis' undefeated season last Saturday but the Tigers are still an impressive 8-1 on the year. They're also 4-4 against the spread, while the Cougars are 9-0 straight up and 6-3 at the betting window.

The Pick

There's two ways to look at Memphis following its loss to Navy last week. Either the Tigers will play loose now that they've fallen behind both Houston and Navy in the AAC West, or they'll be caught flat-footed tonight against a Cougars team with everything to lose. I'll side with the former. The Cougars have all the pressure on them and are coming off a game in which they nearly allowed Cincinnati to come from behind in the fourth quarter before holding on to a 33-30 victory. Memphis, as we all know, can put points on the board thanks to quarterback Paxton Lynch, and it should stay within a touchdown of Houston tonight. If the Tigers were to have beaten Navy, it's hard to imagine Memphis getting a full touchdown against Houston this week. Thus, take the points and the value with the Tigers.
