Tonight we have an AAC clash between the conferences 4th and 5th ranked teams.
Temple comes into this game having won 5 of their last 6 in conference play, including 2 out of their last 3 on the road.
After dropping 3 conference games in a row, Memphis has turned things around winning 4 of their last 5 games.
We should be in for a great game
The Memphis Tigers have seen a massive scoring influx under first-year head coach Penny Hardaway.
The Tigers average 82.3 points per game so far this season, good for 20th in the nation. That rank speaks volumes to what kind of an offensive mind Penny Hardaway might just have, considering the Tigers only averaged 70.8 points per game last year, good for 234th in the country.
While their offense is much improved from last season, their defense is still horrendous, surrendering an average of 76.8 points per game, good for 296th in the country.
I expect Memphis’ offense, led by sensational senior Jeremiah Martin, to be on full display on their home floor.
I just don’t don’t see the defense doing enough to be able to pull away from a resilient Temple team who have high hopes of making the NCAA Tourney.
The Temple Owls are led on offense by Senior Guard Shizz Alston Jr, who is averaging a healthy 18.9 PPG on the season and an astounding 22.6 PPG this month.
The Owls are a much more balanced team than the Tigers, averaging 74.9 PPG and surrendering 70.9 PPG.
A solid defensive effort from the Owls would do wonders for their chances in this one, given how Memphis’ defense can’t stop a nose bleed.
I expect the Owls to take full advantage of a defense that has allowed the conferences top guards to go off against them this season.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Temple is 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 Road games.
- Temple is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 meeting vs Memphis.
- The Road team is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings.
Memphis Tigers vs. Temple Owls Minutemen NCAAB Prediction:
I believe we’ll see a high scoring affair in this one, with the possibility of the last made basket being the winner. I’m giving Temple a slight edge in this one because of their ability on the defensive side of the ball.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Temple ATS
I expect the Owls to be a slight underdog in this one. Look for Temple to gut out a close W and cover on the Tigers home floor behind a big game from Shizz Alston.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: Temple 83 – Memphis 81
