Against The Spread Pick
The college football week is off to a good start with this one on Thursday night between the Navy Midshipmen and the Memphis Tigers. Both of these teams are undefeated coming into this game and have been good against the spread. Memphis have an advantage though and it comes down to the competition they have played. They started off the season against Ole Miss and won by five points. They had trouble scoring but they proved that their defense is strong. Ole Miss doesn’t have the best offense, but the Tigers still had to step up to slow them down. That defense will be the difference again in this game. Tigers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games. Midshipmen are 2-6-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Over Under Pick
This total seems just about right, but it’s a lean to the under. In two of their three games Memphis has given up 10 points or less. In this game I am not sure they will be able to shut down Navy that much, but I don’t see them scoring more than 20 points. The Midshipmen’s defense has also been strong enough and while the Tigers should score, but I think they will do enough to keep this under. Under is 4-1 in the Midshipmen’s last 5 road games. This is a lean at best, but back the under.
