Back to back to back losses for South Florida and none of them look good. If they don’t stop the slide now they are looking at a five game losing streak with UCF looming.
Temple is coming off a big win and they have proven they can really hang with anybody. That line is bigger than expected though.
South Florida Bulls
Losing on the road to Houston and Cincinnati was not too bad but losing to Tulane at home was a head scratcher, especially because it wasn’t even close. Suffice it to say this Bulls team is just OK.
All season long the offense has been nice and balanced but QB Blake Barnett is questionable in this spot and he has been making a lot of mistakes amidst the team’s struggles. It is no coincidence either. The backup was alright last week.
Even though Temple is certainly not an elite offense the USF defense has struggled for most of the season. When they win it is because they get things going on O and make key plays. They are not stopping anyone on every down.
The Owls have won four of five and bounced back from a road loss at UCF to dust off Houston on the road last week. It was a high scoring game that saw over 100 points on the scoreboard.
Temple has a more productive offense than you think. We want to think of them as a salty defensive minded team but in 6 of their last eight games they have scored 30 or more points.
They can play some defense though and are in the top 20 against the pass this season. If Barnett does not go they might be able to cheat and commit more players to the run game to slow that down.

I thought this number would be smaller but these teams are heading in opposite directions I suppose.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Temple -14
I am basing this play on the fact that USF will not have it starting quarterback. If he plays I reserve the right to look at the other side.
Temple should be able to be in control most of the game and win each half by at least a score. That’s how we get a cover in this spot.
