Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Central Florida vs. Memphis
Saturday, October 13, 2018 3:30 PM
Play: Point Spread: 5.5/-110 Memphis
Both these teams can really do damage offensively , but I like how physical Memphis can be and they will be a real problem for UCF this week and their undefeated season and current 18 game win streak. I know that UCF has won their L/5 here SU but they are just 1-4 ATS in those games and Im betting things don't get much better this time around as the series host Im betting moves to 8-0 ATS L/8 meetings. Central Florida is third in the nation in total offense with 574.4 yards per game, 30.5 and have scored 38 or more points in each game this season.QB McKenzie Milton is 13th nationally throwing for 300.2 yards a game while completing 102 of 171 passes for 1,501 yards with 15 touchdowns and only four interceptions. Meanwhile, Memphis QB White is completing almost 70 percent of his passes (69.2 percent), hitting 108 of 156 passes for 1,549 yards with 15 touchdowns and only one interception. His passing rating of 183.08 tops the AAC and is seventh nationally and has to be respected to take advantage of a over rated UCF Defence. His key RB which helps with the option Henderson tops the AAC with 155.7 yards rushing a game, gaining 934 yards on 79 carries with 12 touchdowns. He leads the nation with his rushing yards and 11.8 yards per carry. MEMPHIS is 8-0 ATS in home games vs. excellent teams - outscoring opponents by 17+ PPG on the season since 1992 CFBUnderdogs of 3.5 to 10 points (MEMPHIS) - in a game involving two dominant teams (outgaining opponents by 100+ YPG), after gaining 525 or more total yards in their previous game are 36-11 ATS L/5 seasons for a 76% conversion rate for bettors.
