5* Saturday NCAAF Bowl *BEST BET* (NEW MEXICO BOWL, ESPN) on Temple -6.5
Temple has been deadly against non-conference foes the last two seasons, posting a perfect 7-0 ATS record with an average winning margin 13.6 points. Expect the Owls to continue their non-conference tear Saturday.
The Owls could not be more excited about playing in this bowl as they were snubbed as an 8-win bowl eligible team last season. In other words, they won't be taking this game for granted.
Temple holds big edges with its running game and on defense that will propel it to victory. The Owls, who rank 7th nationally with 256.7 rushing yards per game, should be able to run at will on a Wyoming defense ranked 115th against the run with 231.4 yards allowed per contest.
Temple's defense is a strength while Wyoming's is a liability. The Owls rank 15th in the nation in total defense with 315.5 yards allowed per game and third in scoring defense with 13.8 points allowed per game. We'll lay the points with Temple.
