Temple Owls vs FAU Owls prediction

The Temple Owls have had issues stringing together success all season, and now they’re playing their fourth game in fourth days and their fifth game in six days. Not ideal. The FAU Owls have the clear rest advantage, and they lit Temple up for 80 points with these teams met a month ago. Temple has been a below average team at both ends of the court all year, and now you have to factor in tired legs. Assuming we’re not laying massive numbers, FAU should be able to produce a double-digit win to make the AAC Final.
