Ole Miss vs. Memphis - 10/1/16 College Football Pick, Odds, and Prediction


The Memphis Tigers are off to a 3-0 start and are coming off of a 77-3 beat down win over Bowling Green. The Memphis offense is averaging 51.7 points, 185 rushing yards, and 293 passing yards per game and they have turned the ball over 3 times. Tigers QB Riley Ferguson has completed 67 percent of his passes with 11 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Patrick Taylor leads the Memphis rushing attack with 223 yards and a touchdown and Doroland Dorceus has 178 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns while Anthony Miller leads in receiving with 17 catches and 2 touchdowns. Memphis is allowing 9 points and 287 yards per game with 7 interceptions, 4 fumble recoveries, and 3 sacks. Jonathan Cook leds the Tigers defense with 18 tackles, Genard Avery has 16 tackles, and Chris Morley has 15 tackles. This is a step up for Memphis but they know that Ole Miss will be gunning for them after last year’s win in this game.

Ole Miss is 5-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 home games, and 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games. Memphis is 18-7-1 against the spread in their last 26 non-conference games, 1-7-1 against the spread against the SEC, and 12-5-2 against the spread in their last 19 road games. The underdog is 6-2-1 against the spread in the last nine meetings of these two teams.

I see Memphis having the firepower to put points on the board and at the very least they keep this close enough to cover the spread.  

Memphis Tigers +14.5
