Mem­phis over CON­NECTI­CUT by 13

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

We re­al­ize it’s hard to back the mutts from East Hart­ford who have yet to out­gain a foe this sea­son and are rid­ing a 0-8 SUATS streak against FBS op­po­si­tion since mid-October of last year. Es­pe­cially here against the high-po­tent Cats, who fig­ure to score of­ten and early against a tooth­less Huskies’ stop-unit that is sur­ren­der­ing 37 points and 547 yards per game through the first month of the sea­son. The con­cern, how­ever, is lay­ing dou­ble-dig­its on the road with a timid Tigers’ de­fense that was shred­ded for 603 yards against UCF last Satur­day and is al­low­ing 36 PPG of their own. Not to men­tion a squad that ar­rives off their ini­tial loss of the sea­son with a re­venger against Navy on deck. Still, the men from Mem­phis fig­ure to get their ‘points’ across which has us over­look­ing a se­ries his­tory that finds the se­ries host 2-0 SUATS all-time, and a coach (Randy Ed­sall) who is 5-1 ATS as a home dog of more than 13 points. None­the­less, we’re not over­look­ing a Tigers’ de­fense that ranks 126th in the land and is asked to lay dou­bles on the road. See our dilemma? You’re on your own here.
