Memphis vs FAU Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this matchup having very successful conference seasons and will look to end the regular season on a high note. FAU has picked up a few road losses over the last few weeks, but they have been very good at home. Memphis has won four games in a row, including a 78-74 win against FAU, but their defense has been very questionable this season. This should be a great game with plenty of points scored, but I think FAU gets some revenge on their home floor. Take the Owls here.
