Strong Opinion Р(320) TEMPLE (-9 -115) 26   Massachusetts  10

Strong Opinion – Massachusetts Team Total UNDER 16.5 at 16 or more

Massachusetts has averaged just 11 points on offense on just 245 yards per game. The Minutemen scored just 10 points against Tulane, 10 points against Toledo, and only 13 points on offense against FCS team Stony Brook (they got a defensive TD). UMass can’t throw the ball at all, averaging just 50 pass yards per game at 3.0 yards per pass play and they’ve managed just 3.9 yards per rushing play while running the ball 50 times per game. That’s not going to work against a Temple defense that’s yielded just 4.1 yprp to a trio of teams that would combine to average 5.1 yprp against an average defense. The Owls have faced two below average offensive teams in Lafayette and Rutgers and their defense held those teams to an average of just 159 total yards at 2.8 yppl and that unit should dominate a pathetic UMass offense today.

Temple’s offense is a concern laying more than a touchdown but the Owls’ attack is certainly better with E.J. Warner at quarterback. Warner averaged 6.7 yards per pass play in his first start last week against Rutgers and I expect the Owls to score more against a bad UMass defense that they did in last week’s 14-16 spread covering loss.

Temple is a Strong Opinion at -10 or less and the Massachusetts Team Total Under 16.5 is a Strong Opinion.
