The Houston Cougars are going to be favored due to their overall consistency and the fact they’ve been the more trustworthy team this season. However, we’re getting free points with a Memphis team that’s playing its best ball of the year and beat Houston twice this season. Memphis beat Houston by 14 points exactly a week ago. Memphis has found something that’s clicked the last two weeks, and the defense has gotten better. Tight, exciting game. Give me the Tigers and the points.
