The Temple Owls come into this game with a 5-10 record overall but they have lost six of their last seven games. In the last game against South Florida, the defense was strong giving up only 47 points and that was enough to come away with the victory. Temple is averaging 65.5 points per game while their defense is giving up 68.5 points per game. Temple is shooting 40.1 percent from the field and 33.9 percent from behind the three point line. Temple’s best player has been Damian Dunn who is averaging 13.8 points while shooting 35.6 percent from the field 

On the other side of this matchup is Central Florida Knights who come into this game with an 8-11 record overall but they have won two games in a row.

The under is 20-7-1 in Temple’s last 28 games played on Saturday The under is 15-7 in Temple’s last 22 road games. UCF is 7-3 against the spread in their last ten home games. 

I expect both teams to struggle to score in this game and that will lead to this game being very low scoring. Back the under to cash with ease.  In terms of the side it's a lean with Temple to cover the spread.
