Pick

The Memphis Tigers are the more talented team and should be favored, but they’re a banged up team that can feel like they’re underachieving at times. While not very talented, the Temple Owls are a scrappy defensive bunch that competes, and that includes winning by an average of 1.6 points in the underdog role. With an above average defense and a top-40 free throw shooting percentage, Temple can hang around. Give me the points.
