Memphis coming in hot riding a 3 game win streak and me with a three-game win streak betting Cinci by 7 and Wichta State by 10, who are both better team then SMU. Memphis offense is explosive and the Tigers have Davis and Williams who have been two elite-level players. Davis is coming off a 21-point outing while Williams is coming off a 26-point outing. These two have carried the offense while helping a significant amount on the boards, so look for both these guys to have a big game against SMU defense that is sub-par. Thick spread but I like Memphis by double digits and a cover here.
The Tigers have a significantly better offense and both teams have a compariable defense. The Mustangs won more games straight up and against the spread over their last 3 matchups. Adjusted score predictions based on power rankings and strength of schedule: Mustangs 68 to Tigers 81.
