Tulsa vs Temple Prediction & Pick

Neither one of these defenses have shown a reason to trust them in 2022, so looking at the offenses in this game provides a better prediction. Temple is averaging only 11.6 points per game this season, which is the third-worst mark in the country. The Owls have scored 14 or less points four times.

On the other side, Tulsa is averaging a respectable 28.8 points per game (No. 58 in FBS) and have one of the best wide receivers in the nation on its team. Stokes ranks third among all college wideouts with 765 receiving yards and has also scored 4 touchdowns. He'll be the difference-maker here.

Final Score Prediction: Tulsa: 37 | Temple: 20

The 2021-22 season was a rough one for Temple and its inability to keep games close has bled into this season as well. The Owls are now 3-10 against the spread (ATS) in their last 13 games and 0-9 ATS in their last nine games against an AAC opponent. There's no reason to stop backing that trend.

Tulsa is an impressive 16-3 ATS in its last 19 away games and has had no issues dealing with hostile crowd or long travel days. The Golden Hurricane have bowl eligibility on their mind and beating up on bad teams is the easiest way to rack up victories. This final score could end up being a blowout.

Bet: Tulsa -13.5 (-105)
