Memphis vs Connecticut Free Pick

Riley Ferguson leading Memphis to upset over UCLAWeek 6 of the college football regular season continues on Friday with an American Athletic Conference matchup when the Memphis Tigers visit the Connecticut Huskies. The current line on top sportsbooks has Memphis favored by 14 points with the over/under point total on 70.5.

Entering this game, Memphis on the season is 3-1 straight up and 1-3 against the spread. On the road, the Tigers are 0-1 SU and ATS. Connecticut on the season is 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS. At home, the Huskies are 1-1 SU and 0-2 ATS.

Memphis was embarrassed last week after starting the season strongly and hopes that visiting a struggling Connecticut team will help them forget about their poor play last weekend. The Tigers averaged nearly 43 points in their first three games of the season that were all victories.

One of their victories was a huge upset over UCLA, but the Tigers were brought down to earth when pummeled by Central Florida last Saturday 40-13.

Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson threw for six touchdowns versus UCLA, but last week threw three interceptions.

Connecticut quarterback Bryant Shirreffs is one of the few bright spots on the Huskies. The senior signal caller has thrown for over 400 yards against SMU and East Carolina the past two games, but both resulted in losses.

The Huskies defense allowed a combined 128 points across three straight losses after opening the season with a victory over Holy Cross. The UConn secondary is allowing the most yards through the air in the nation at 379.9 per game.

Memphis gave up 603 total yards of offense to UCF last week with 350 yards on the ground. The Tigers need to run the ball on offense more successfully in order to keep opposing offenses off the field, as the defense remains the team’s weak link.

Connecticut is averaging close to 28 points per game, as Shirreffs had 8 touchdown passes to only 2 interceptions. The running game has faltered as Nate Hopkins accumulated 130 yards on the ground against Holy Cross, but has averaged just 31 yards per game since in the Huskies three straight losses.

The teams are 1-1 in all time head to head matchups, with Memphis winning 41-10 in 2014, and Connecticut winning 45-10 in 2013.

Memphis is 2-6 ATS in its last 8 games on the road.

Connecticut is 7-19 ATS in its last 26 AAC games.

With this free pick, we like Memphis to cover.

Connecticut vs Houston Free Pick

Week 5 of the college football regular season kicks off from the Lone Star state when the No. 6 ranked Houston Cougars host the Connecticut Huskies. The current line on sportsbooks has Houston favored by 27 points with the over/under point total not yet released.

On the season, Connecticut is 2-2 straight up and 0-3 against the spread. On the road, the Huskies are 0-1 SU and ATS. Houston on the season is 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS. At home, the Cougars are 1-0 SU and 0-1 ATS.

Houston hosts Connecticut in an ACC showdown coming off a 64-3 rout of Texas State. Connecticut lost to Syracuse at home 31-24 last weekend. However, last season, the Huskies defeated the Cougars 20-17, when the teams played in Connecticut.

Connecticut could have won last weekend against Syracuse with better execution. The Huskies were held on fourth and goal from the Syracuse two-yard line, which likely cost them the game.    › Continue reading
