Randy’s Free Pick

The Temple Owls are obviously the better team and should be favored at home, but they’re a scrappy team that lacks the offensive firepower to pull away. In fact, Temple only wins at home by an average of 3.1 points and wins in the favorite role by an average of 0.9 points. Temple is in a lot of close games. Give me USF and the free buckets.
