10 Best College Football Predictions Against The Spread: Week 5

2. Memphis at SMU

LINE: PICK
ATS PICK: Memphis
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

Welcome to 2020. You’re betting on how a team is reacting and coming off a problem with the coronavirus.

If everything was normal and if Memphis didn’t have to shut everything down for a few weeks, you wouldn’t be getting anything close to the value of -2 – which was where the line settled in at all week.

Now it’s an even bet.

Considering the Tigers would be at least a seven-point favorite, and more like ten if everything was somewhat normal, the value is too great to not give this a shot.

SMU has been terrific so far with the offense firing on all cylinders, averaging almost 50 points per game with a balanced attack that’s ripping through everything. However, Memphis isn’t Texas, North Texas or Stephen F. Austin.

This should be a back-and-forth shootout – the over is interesting, even at 74 – but Memphis is more talented, has the skill parts and lines to hold up, and it should be able to simply win straight up.
