The Memphis Tigers have the talent to blow the doors off here, especially at home, but this is a thick line. Also, we saw the Alabama State Hornets give Ole Miss a run for its money on the road in their season opener. Furthermore, this is a bit of a look ahead spot for Memphis, with a meeting against Michigan on deck. It's for sure that Alabama State is going to be the more motivated side. I'll take a shot with the points and the Hornets in this spot.
