As many sports bettors are aware, Memphis has built a reputation of starting fast this season, which will lead to a Week 10 College Football blowout against Tulsa Friday night.

A Disappointing Season
Tulsa welcomed back 10 defensive starters this season, but that group has disappointed in allowing an average of 494.9 yards per game, which has led directly to its 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS record.

The Golden Hurricane have scored first just once in seven contests, which is important to consider when making your Week 10 NCAA football predictions, as they’ll face an opponent that has scored in the first quarter in every game in 2014.

Over the last two-plus seasons, the squad is 0-2 SUATS as underdogs of 21.5 to 31 points, with the OVER cashing in both of those opportunities.

 

Alternating Pattern
Memphis has alternated wins and losses in its first seven games, as it attempts to build off a 48-10 victory over the SMU Mustangs as 22-point road favorites last Saturday, while capturing the statistical battle by a 331-yard margin.

The Tigers are a program on the rise under third-year head coach Justin Fuente, which can’t be ignored when looking over the College Football odds, as they’ve already surpassed their scoring total of 234 points last year.

College football handicappers will find that the team is 7-5 SUATS as favorites since 2012, with the OVER going 8-3 in that situation.

 

Errant Throws
The Golden Hurricane like to put the ball in the air offensively, which is clearly demonstarted with Dane Evans completing 56.3 percent of his 284 pass attempts this season.

Tulsa needs its sophomore signal-caller to take care of the football in visiting Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, as he’s thrown 16 touchdowns and 19 interceptions since becoming the starter last year.

 

Fuente Will Be Ready
The Tigers will be properly motivated to cover any betting line in the marketplace this week, as Fuente was born and raised in Tulsa, OK—eventually playing quarterback at Union High School before landing at Oklahoma and Murray State collegiately.

He’s done wonders in improving quarterback Paxton Lynch under center, with the sophomore completing 64.8 percent of his passes for 1,708 yards and 10 touchdowns in seven starts.

 

Prediction
I’m going to recommend that readers back the Tigers as one of their College Football picks, as they've gone 7-1 ATS in weeks 10 through 13 during the Fuente era.
