LINE: Houston -7.5, o/u: 75
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Really, South Florida?
UConn’s defense was giving away 49 points a game like they were free tacos, and you – you, you unbeaten USF team – allowed that defense to give up a season-low 38 points to you?
The over on the 69 total should’ve been a breeze. Instead, the 38-30 final was a slight shocker.
You owe us, USF. Oh yes … you owe us.
Hey, Houston. Welcome to the fun.
The Cougar offense has put up 41 points or more in every game this season, including hanging 49 on Texas Tech and 45 on Arizona. Last week, it put up 49 on Navy in a fun win.
There is a concern, though, the USF is going to hose us all over again.
Build games aren’t shootouts. Only the 49-38 win over Georgia Tech and the 58-42 win over UMass came even remotely close to the 75-point total.
But let’s have some fun.
It’s going to take both offenses to get well into the 30s to get into the discussion, and the winner has to put up 40 or so. Houston will do its part, and now, USF …
We need you.
