Knights survive Tulane
Central Florida is coming off a 34-31 win at Tulane last week for its fourth win in five games. The Knights come into this weekend at 8-3 overall, 5-2 in the AAC, 4-7 against the spread and 6-5 with the over.
UCF has one of the best offenses in the nation this year, averaging 43.8 points and 536.4 yards per game. Defensively, the Knights are giving up 24.3 points and 353.5 yards per game. Dillon Gabriel is leading the UCF offense with 3,123 passing yards and 25 touchdowns while Otis Anderson leads the ground attack with 658 yards and five scores. Two others have over 500 yards as well. Gabriel Davis is the team’s top receiver with 64 catches for 1,135 yards and 10 touchdowns.
South Florida can’t get on track
South Florida is on a three-game slide right now following a 49-10 loss at home to Memphis last weekend. The Bulls have been held to 17 points or less in four of their last five games. They are now 4-7 on the year, 2-5 against the spread, 6-5 against the spread and 6-4-1 with the under.
The Bulls have struggled offensively most of the season, putting up just 22.1 points and 338.5 yards per contest. Defensively, USF is averaging 28.5 points and 385.2 yards per contest. Jordan McCloud has thrown for 1,313 yards and 12 touchdowns this year while also rushing for 245 yards and four scores. Jordan Cronkrite is the leading rusher with 686 yards and four scores, but he is out for this game with a shoulder injury. Mitchell Wilcox is the team’s leading receiver with 26 catches for 334 yards and five touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Knights have hit the over in four straight home games and in six straight games on grass.
The Bulls are 7-3 with the over in their last 10 games following a failed cover, but 4-0 with the under in their last four against a winning team.
These two have hit the under in four of their last six meetings. UCF hasn’t had a problem scoring on the Bulls, putting up at least 38 in the last three encounters. The issue has been for the Bulls to be able to score as well. They didn’t do that last year in a 38-10 loss. It’s a concern heading into today as well, as the Bulls have been held to 17 or less in three straight. That includes just 10 points in a home loss to Memphis. Memphis isn’t known for defense either, so I think USF is going to continue to struggle on the road today. I like UCF to do its part, but I don’t see the Bulls scoring enough for the over to hit.
