Point Spread Pick:

Memphis is not playing at home, but are playing in their hometown and the crowd should be very pro Tigers tonight. Both teams come into this game winners of 7 of their last 10, but Memphis has looked more impressive lately. The Tigers knocked off a very strong Louisville team on March 1st and SMU in their latest. Those games sandwiched a road loss to the Bearcats, but there is no shame in that. We may be overplaying the Huskies 33 point loss to the Cardinals, but it is our opinion that such a confidence crushing loss is very difficult to rebound from.
Take the Memphis Tigers -3.5.

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
