Memphis on 4-game win streak

College Football Betting Trends
The Bulls are just 6-13 against the spread in their last 19 conference games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games.
The Tigers are 18-7-1 against the spread in their last 26 conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a win.
Memphis has won three of the last four in this series, but the Bulls are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five with the Tigers. USF hasn’t been able to consistently produce offense throughout the year and the Bulls will need a lot of offense in order to compete today. Memphis is going to score. The Tigers have put up at least 42 points in four straight and seven of their last 10 games. That should continue today against a USF team that doesn’t have a lot of inspiration right now. I think the Bulls get overwhelmed early and won’t be able to recover.
