The Bulls are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Thursday games and 20-44-1 ATS in the last 65 following an ATS win. South Florida is also 3-8 ATS in their last 11 neutral-site games and the over is 5-1 in the last six Thursday games.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last six overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six versus the AAC. The over is 4-0 in the Tigers’ last four neutral-site games and 8-2 in their last 10 overall.
South Florida hasn’t been scoring all that well lately, as they’ve hit 69 points or more just once in their last eight games. The Bulls lost to Memphis at home 86-74, but then won 75-51 on the road last Thursday. That was the Tigers’ lone blemish in the last six games, and otherwise they’ve been looking good. I’m taking Memphis here.
