Memphis Tigers Vs UConn Huskies College Football Week 6 Odds & Pick
Memphis Tigers (3-1) at UConn Huskies (1-3)
When: Friday, October 6, 2017 at 7:00 PM ET
Where: Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field
Stream: Watch ESPN
NCAAF Odds: Memphis -14
Why Bet the Memphis Tigers Odds at -14
Memphis had their three-game winning streak snapped in their humbling 40-13 blowout loss against Central Florida as quarterback Riley Ferguson was limited to 27 of 49 passing for 321 yards and one touchdown while tossing a costly three interceptions in the defeat. For the season, Ferguson is completing just 55.4 percent of his passes for 1,104 yards with nine touchdowns and five interceptions.
Defensively, Memphis has been almost as bad as UConn in giving up a stunning 36.2 points per game to rank 111th in points allowed nationally.
Why Bet the UConn Huskies Odds at +14
The Huskies have dropped three straight and come into their Week 6 matchup against Memphis off a humbling 49-28 blowout loss against SMU last weekend while never coming close to covering the spread as a 16.5-point road underdog. Quarterback Bryant Shirreffs was solid in completing an efficient 22 of 28 pass attempts for 408 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions but the Huskies were held to a jaw-dropping -8 rushing yards on 36 team carries. For the season, Shirreffs is completing a stellar 68.9 percent of his passes for 1,165 yards with eight touchdowns and two interceptions, but the UConn defense has been atrocious in allowing a whopping 37.0 points per game to rank a pitiful 117th in points allowed nationally.
Memphis Vs UConn Pick
I know Memphis is 3-1 while UConn is a polar opposite 1-3, but the Huskies have the far better quarterback in this matchup of pitiful defensive teams and that leads me to believe that UConn is the easy pick to at least cover the college football betting line at home in this Week 6 matchup.
The Tigers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the Huskies are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 conference games and 14-39-1 ATS in their last 54 games overall.
I’m taking UConn and the nearly two touchdowns to cover the chalk everyone!
Pick: UConn +13.5
