Lines to Monitor

No. 23 Memphis at Temple: Opened at -3.5, early move to -6

Memphis vs Temple Game Center

Line History

A 5-0 start for Memphis has catapulted the Tigers into the AP Top 25 rankings and they look to continue climbing the ladder at Temple (4-1) on Saturday. It may come as a bit of a surprise to see the line move 2.5 points already with the Tigers having never covered against the Owls, yet they have been favored by more than a touchdown in all but one meeting and this is the first since 2016.

These are very similarly built teams with solid offenses and stout defenses. On the offensive side of the ball, the Tigers do have a little more of a balanced approach through the air with Brady White and on the ground with Kenneth Gainwell. Conversely, Temple is more pass-heavy with Anthony Russo collecting an average of 284.4 passing yards per game.

Both teams having winning spread records, with Memphis 4-1 ATS and Temple 3-2. This line has moved quickly and we could see it getting to the touchdown mark, which may prove valuable for Temple backers.

Michigan State at No. 8 Wisconsin: Total opened 42, early move to 39

Michigan State vs Wisconsin Game Center

Line History

Two extremely strong defenses collide in an all-Big Ten matchup in Week 7. Wisconsin (5-0) leads the nation by allowing just 5.8 points per game this season, including shutouts over South Florida, Central Michigan and last week against Kent State. Meanwhile, Michigan State (4-2) ranks 21st in college football with 18.2 points allowed per game but has surrendered 30-plus points in back-to-back weeks.

What separates these teams the most is their offenses. The Badgers combine their smothering defense with the 11th-ranked offense, racking up an average of 43.4 points per game. On the other side, the Spartans are 75th in the nation for points per game at 27.8 and rank 100th in rushing yards per game with 131.7.

The total for this game has dropped three points already, but is 39 still too high? Two weeks ago, Northwestern’s defense was able to limit Wisconsin to just 24 points. Meanwhile, Michigan State scored a combined 17 points against tougher teams in Ohio State and Arizona State, while beating up on lesser opponents.

Key Numbers for Week 7

No. 15 Utah at Oregon State: Opened at -14, has remained at -14

Utah vs Oregon State Game Center

Line History

The line between No. 15 Utah (4-1) and Oregon State (2-3) hasn’t budged since opening at -14. Perhaps this is because nobody wants to wager on the highly volatile Pac-12. Oregon State’s defense continues to be an issue, giving up 30.4 points per game which ranks 97th in the nation, yet its offense sits 25th with 37 ppg.

Meanwhile, Utah’s defense has been downright nasty this year. Outside of surrendering 30 points at USC, the Utes have allowed a combined 42 points over their four other games, including limiting Washington State to a mere 13 points in Week 5.

This is the first meeting between these two since 2016 and going into this game, the Utes are just 2-6 ATS against the Beavers over their last eight meetings. Additionally, Utah is 2-3 ATS this season, while Oregon State has covered in four straight games. This line may stay stagnant, leaving bettors scratching their heads on what side to choose.

No. 25 Cincinnati at Houston: Opened at -5, early move to -7

Cincinnati vs Houston Game Center

Line History

Houston starting QB D’Eriq King announced after the Tulane loss that he would be redshirting for the remainder of the season, but that didn’t hurt the Cougars (2-3) the following week at North Texas with a 46-25 win. New starting QB Mason Fine was just as his name suggests, completing 35 of his 55 pass attempts for 353 yards and two touchdowns.

Meanwhile, since its 42-0 drubbing at Ohio State in Week 2, Cincinnati has picked up three wins in a row, including a 27-24 win over then-No. 18 UCF last week, and has climbed to No. 25 in the AP rankings. The Bearcats beat up on Miami (OH) and Marshall by a combined score of 87-27 prior to the UCF game. Their defense has been tough, especially against the run, where they surrender an average of 129.4 yards per game to rank 47th.

Cincinnati is 4-1 ATS this season, only failing to cover at Ohio State, while Houston is 3-2 ATS, not covering against Tulane or Prairie View A&M. The early line movement could be because Houston’s new QB is going against his first tough defense, in comparison to North Texas, which ranks 97th in points allowed per game. This line may continue to climb and give more flexibility in backing the Cougars.
