LINE: Houston -4.5, o/u: 69.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
You did watch the Temple 52-40 loss to UCF, right? Get ready for a repeat against a Houston team looking to crank up the firepower again after a loss, and more importantly, with a defense that gives up big, big, big yards.
The Temple passing game is the real deal, and now that it’s rested a wee bit with an extra few days off, it should be ready for a firefight.
Yup, the Temple games against Navy and Cincinnati were relatively low scoring, but the Owl O has put up 31 points or more in five of the last seven games.
Each of the last three Cougar games have gone rocketing past 70 points, partly due to an offense who scored 31 last week on a bad day. Houston will be in the 40s, Temple can at least get into the 30s.
Enjoy the show.
