SMU vs Memphis 2019 College Football Week 10 Odds, Game Info & Prediction

Written by on October 31, 2019

Week 10 of the college football season is upon us and it’s a bit of a strange one in that many of the top teams are in a bye week. That is not to suggest that there are no big games on the schedule, as there most certainly are. The game between the Florida Gators and the Georgia Bulldogs is at the top of the list, but there are other big ones out there. What you need to be aware of is that some of those games exist outside of the Power 5 Conferences.

With so many teams idle this weekend, you have the perfect opportunity to do a little channel hopping and tune into some games that you might ordinarily pass on. This game is one such example, as it features a pair of teams sitting in the top 25, with the winner of this one taking a stranglehold in their division in the AAC. Can the SMU Mustangs remain unbeaten or will they fall on the road to the Memphis Tigers? Memphis are in as a 6-point favorite at home, with the point total for this one set at 71 ½.

Wofford vs Clemson 2019 College Football Week 10 Odds & Analysis

Why bet on the SMU Mustangs?

The SMU Mustangs come into this game as the #15 ranked team in the nation. As history has proven, the fact that they play outside of the Power 5 means that they are not going to crack the top 4, but what they can do is potentially play themselves into one of the big New Year’s 6 Bowl Games. That run begins with finding a way to win on the road against a very decent Memphis Tigers team.

The one thing that we can almost certainly guarantee is that SMU is going to put some points on the board, as they are averaging 43 PPG this season. The downside here is that they are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games versus Memphis, as well as being 0-5 ATS in their last 7 against the Tigers.

Why bet on the Memphis Tigers?

This is a game that is almost certainly going to turn into a shootout, and with just under 40 PPG as their season average, the Tigers certainly have what it takes to hang in there and compete in those types of games. It’s what they had to do last week in a 42-41 win over Tulsa in a game that they started as a 10-point favorite.

SMU vs Memphis is going to be a close one.

That win took the Tigers to 7-1 on the season and 3-1 in AAC play, which has them trailing the Mustangs who sit atop the division with a perfect record. The Tigers are not winning the conference if they do not come out and win this game. They are winners of 6-straight at home and are an impressive 9-0 ATS in their last 9 games played in November.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for SMU vs Memphis

Even with the point total set as high as it is, the OVER might be the safest bet on offer here. This game looks like a bit of a coin flip to me, but I would take the Mustangs to cover, as that spread looks a little too high in favor of the Tigers.
