LINE: UCF -4.5, o/u: 81
ATS PICK: UCF
It was arguably the best game of last season.
UCF kept its dream season alive with a 62-55 win over Memphis in the Conference USA championship game, but earlier in the year, it also beat the Tigers 40-13.
New year, a new UCF coach, and new teams, but the Knights are still fantastic, and Memphis still has to prove it can beat someone great.
Granted, beating Florida Atlantic and Pitt isn’t that big a deal, but UCF has yet to have even a slight blip. It might not have all the great defensive talent of last year’s team, but only FAU has scored more than 20 points on this group, and the offense keeps on rolling.
UCF has beaten everyone so far by at least 20 points.
Memphis lost to Navy and lost to Tulane on the road, but is unbeaten at home. However, the best home win … Georgia State.
This will be a jacked up Tiger team looking to make a statement, but until the machine shows any sign of slowing down, the defending national champion giving away just 4.5 is an insult.
