MEM­PHIS over Smu by 7

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

Talk about dom­i­na­tion: the Tigers are 3-0 SUATS in the last three meet­ings, with a com­bined score of 162-17! Mem­phis holds a 1-game lead on Hous­ton atop the AAC West with the tie-breaker in hand, but also owns a 3-9 ATS mark as con­fer­ence home fa­vorites of more than 6 points. This is a tough call but our al­le­giance would be with the hard-try­ing Mus­tangs against an of­ten-de­fense­less pack of Tigers that has sur­ren­dered sea­son-high yardage on three oc­ca­sions this year. And keep in mind that the Mus­tangs are vastly im­proved this year and are as dogs of more than 10 points since last sea­son. Sopho­more QB Ben Hicks has had a big year, throw­ing for nearly 3,000 yards and 24 TDs ver­sus just 7 in­ter­cep­tions. Con­grats to those who bet the SMU game be­fore Satur­day as the Ponies fought back from a 30-11 half­time deficit to cash a ticket against Navy in a 43-40 loss at the wire. More of the same today.
