Memphis Has Been Awful On The Road

The Memphis Tigers enter a massive Saturday showdown with the UConn Huskies as a terrible bet on the road. In their last 18 games away from home, the Tigers are just 4-13-1 ATS including failing to cover in their one true road game this season.

Shark Bites
  • UConn is 2-3-1 ATS in their last six games against Memphis.
  • Memphis is 5-10 SU in their past 15 road games.
  • Freshman Dedric Lawson leads Memphis in points per game (14.5) and rebounds per game (8.8).

Memphis won both games against UConn last season, but despite holding the Huskies to just 34 percent shooting, won by a mere four points combined. Memphis will welcome Shaq Goodwin back to the lineup after the senior was suspended one game for tripping an opponent.

UConn will need to fix some shooting problems from last game if they want to beat Memphis, who has the third-best defensive field goal percentage in the country. Four of the Huskies five starters shot less than 36 percent from the field in their loss to Temple as the team put up a sad 31.6 shooting percentage.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Memphis Tigers opened as 7.5-point underdogs in this one at most sportsbooks tracked at Odds Shark, including MyBookie. The total was set to open a bit later (check out Bovada for the latest situation).
