The current college football odds have Memphis as -8.5 point favorites and the over/under is currently at 50.5 total points. 62 percent of the betting public have their money behind FAU as the underdog. 

FAU is 5-3 overall this season in the Conference USA after dropping their last 2 games to Georgia Southern 20-3, then to Southern Miss, 45-31 in their last game.

Quarterback Nick Tronti went 17 out 33 completions for 162 total yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He hasn’t been named the starter for this game and you could possibly see Javion Posey get the start.

If FAU wants to get the bowl game win it would be smart for Coach Taggert to use Posey as the dual threat he is and get that early offensive spark they’ll need. Memphis had weeks to prepare for this game and FAU will need to keep up with them offensively.

FAU is 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games and the total has gone under in 6 of the Owls last 8 games.

Memphis comes into this game 7-3 overall this season. This team is led by quarterback Brady White who threw for 3100 yards and 28 touchdowns on a 60 percent completion rate in 2020. This will be White’s last game in a Tigers uniform and he’ll  to go down as the program’s all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns. Memphis is ranked 14th in the nation for passing yards, averaging 315 total yards per game, but they’ll face this Owls defense who only gives up 176 total yards per game in the air per game. Memphis will come out in the first quarter and establish the ground game to open up big plays in the air for the rest of the game. The x-factor is this game will be the Tigers Wide Wide Receiver, Calvin Austin. He’s had a great 2020 season with 60 receptions for over 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns and expect him to have a 100 yards and a touchdown in this one.

Memphis is 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 games and the Tigers are 11-0 straight up in their last 11 games when playing as the favorite.
