Temple vs. Ohio Week 10 NCAA Lines & Spread Prediction

Gambling Matchup Week 10 – Temple Owls vs Ohio Bobcats

The Temple Owls and the Ohio Bobcats have been at the forefront of the race for the Mid-American Conference’s East Division title the last few years.

The teams met in the final regular-season game of the 2009 campaign with the MAC East crown up for grabs.

Last year, the teams played what amounted to an elimination game, with the winner still having a chance to outduel Miami University for the championship.

These are two of the MAC’s steadier programs; they’re once again atop the East along with Miami and Bowling Green, who are lurking in the neighborhood. This is yet another proving-ground moment in the month of November, a time when the nature of the MAC East race will take a decisive turn in one direction or another.

The main storyline surrounding this clash is that Ohio has won the last two meetings. The Bobcats’ offense ran wild in the 2009 game, and in the 2010 meeting, Ohio’s defense was able to clamp down on Temple.

The reason why Ohio generally gets the better of Temple in this matchup is that the Bobcats are more balanced on offense. Ohio ranks in the top 40 in the nation in both rushing yards and passing yards per game. Averages of 264.5 passing yards and 184.1 rushing yards give Ohio unpredictability and the chance to keep opposing defenses on a pendulum. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

The same can’t be said for Temple, which remains a one-dimensional offensive unit.

Platoon quarterbacks Chester Stewart and Mike Gerardi have been with the program for a long time; yet, those two upperclassmen just can’t move the needle – or the ball – with considerable consistency or dynamism. The two men have combined for just over 1,000 yards passing through eight games and have thrown an aggregate total of just five touchdown passes.

Temple ranks 112th in the United States – out of 120 Football Bowl Subdivision teams – in passing yards per game, with an average of just 133.3.

It’s true that Temple has the ninth-ranked rushing attack in the land, amassing just over 252 yards per contest thanks to elite running back Bernard Pierce, but whenever Ohio and Temple play, the Bobcats are able to load up the tackle box and stuff the Owls’ ground game.

Temple has to find big plays from the passing game, and recent history shows that the boys from Philadelphia won’t find what they’re looking for. Ohio will win.
