The Memphis Tigers and the Central Florida Knights rank 4th and 1st nationally in scoring offense. Both teams average well over 40 points per game, so it’s no surprise that the bookmakers are expecting a high scoring game here. The total opened at 81, and was quickly bet up as high as 85. The last time these teams met, the Knights held Memphis to just 13 points. They out-gained the Tigers by more than 200 yards, and forced four turnovers. UCF is asked to cover a seven point spread, but that’s only one TD in a game that is expected to have as many as a dozen TDs scored.

The total for this game is far higher than it was in any of the last 10 meetings dating back to 2005. Central Florida won all 10 of those games, and covered in all five home games during that span. Four of the last five meetings have gone under, with the exception being a 35-17 Central Florida win in 2012. The Tigers hopes rest solely on quarterback Riley Ferguson, who threw three INTs the last time he played at Central Florida. The Knights are a well rounded team that can run, pass and play defense. I’ll take the home favorite here in Orlando.
