TODAY'S ACTION --
*2 UNITS* TEMPLE OWLS (+8)
Just have to give it up for Temple again here tonight, after they handed East Carolina a convincing 20-10 loss last week, while forcing 5 fumbles in picking up their first win against a ranked opponent since 1998. They face an equally formidable task against Memphis tonight, but that didn't seem to be a problem last season when this now-improved team went into Memphis and picked up a 41-21 win against the favored Tigers on that day. Memphis was also favored by 7 in that one and they were dominated in every single way on their home turf, as the Owls racked up 534 offensive yards against the Tigers 226, with 206 of the Owls yards coming in the run game. Memphis has been excellent overall lately, with two straight wins on the road and 40+ points scored in both of those games, but Temple should be rolling still from last week and this team should come out with enough momentum to keep this one close enough to cover the spread at the very least. Temple has also posted a 5-1 ATS record in their L6 against teams with a winning record, as well as a 6-1 ATS mark in their L7 at home in the same situation. Go with the TEMPLE OWLS to cover tonight's battle.........
*2 UNITS* UTAH STATE AGGIES (-7.5) AND
*2 UNITS* OVER 44 UTAH STATE AGGIES @ WYOMING COWBOYS
I tried to find a way to go with the Cowboys of Wyoming here, but in the end, it seems like the Aggies are the play here, as they come into this one rolling red hot, while also having handled the Cowboys easily in their last couple meetings. Utah State has now covered 4 of their L5 and 2 straight coming into tonight's meeting, while putting 35 or more points on the board in 6 of their L8 games overall. They have also managed to do that in 4 of their L5 games, while outscoring their opponents by double-digits in all 4 of their wins. Wyoming snapped a 4-game losing streak with a nice convincing victory at Fresno State last week and they have played tough in every game on their home turf this season, with their largest margin-of-defeat being 7 points, while posting a 3-1 ML and 1-3 ATS mark on their home turf this season. That mark is a little less impressive when you factor in the fact that they have lost by 7 to San Jose State, beat Florida Atlantic by 1 as a 3-point favorite, beat Air Force by 4 (17-13) and Montana by 5 (17-12). Impressive yes, but not all that impressive. Utah State handled Wyoming with great ease in both of their L2 meetings, with a 35-7 win to finish off the Cowboys season last year, and a 63-19 win 2 school years ago. Utah State is a different team from that squad, but they should still be the team to beat tonight. Go with UTAH STATE and the OVER in tonight's meeting........
