Temple is a good team. They have put together a nice record but probably need a signature win or two if they are going to really make a push for at at large bid.
Houston is already at 20 wins and seems like a lock at this point. They just have to keep winning the games they are supposed to. Like this one.
Temple lost their last game at home but Cincinnati is once again very strong. They are good on the road too with a 5-2 mark in true road games.
Normally the story starts with their three scoring weapons on the perimeter but against Cincy they got 20 points from sophomore wing James Moorman II off the bench. More depth would really help this group.
Schizz Alston is still struggling with his shot but not his confidence. He averages 18ppg and if they are going to upset in this one he will have to be good.
The same goes for Quentin Rose. The duo are a big reason this team is a threat on the road. They are confident experienced players who are not going to be shy in the moment.
Houston has been hot all season long. They are tied atop the AAC with a 7-1 record and looking to show that last season’s March Madness success was no fluke.
This is a very athletic group and a strong defensive team. They are yielding only 60ppg. They are not the biggest but they challenge you to make quick decisions.
The offense is a two headed monster of Armoni Brooks and Corey Davis Jr, both average 14ppg – nobody else averages more than 8.
I worry about their overall lack of size but it has not been an issue often and probably won’t be in this matchup.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 8-0 in TEM last 8 overall.
- HOU are 33-16-2 ATS in their last 51 games overall.
- Road team is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
