The Temple Owls and Memphis Tigers face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at FedExForum. When these two teams faced off in February of 2020 it was Memphis that won 79-65.
Temple comes into this game with a 15-9 record overall and they have gone 15-9 against the spread. Temple has won two games in a row including the last game against Cincinnati. Temple scored 47 points in the 1st half, and they held on in the second half. Temple is averaging 67.3 points while their defense is giving up 65.3 points per game. Damian Dunn has been the top player for Temple this season averaging 15.5 points while shooting 53.8 percent from the field and 48.8 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Memphis Tigers who sit with a 15-9 record and they have gone 10-13-1 against the spread. Memphis had been playing better but they took a stepback in the last game. Against SMU, Memphis only scored 57 points, and that led to the 16 point defeat. Memphis is averaging 76 points while their defense is giving up 69.6 points per game. Jalen Duren has been the top player for Memphis averaging 11.4 points while shooting 64.4 percent from the field. There are three different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game.
Memphis is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall. Temple is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games against a team with a winning straight-up record. The under is 5-1 in Temple’s last six games following an against the spread win. The over is 4-1 in Memphis last five home games against a team with a winning road record.
Temple has found success in terms of covering spreads against good teams, and that is going to be the case again in this game. I expect Memphis offense is going to struggle to score, and that is going to be the difference as Temple keeps this game close. Back Temple to come away with a cover of the spread.
