First up we have the Owls (10-2) squaring off against the Knights (10-2). Temple has played a tougher schedule but will have trouble matching up size-wise with Central Florida. Last year Temple beat UCF easily at home, got crushed in Orlando. Tonight, they’re back in Orlando. Fran Dunphy’s squad is already +6.5 and we’re going to move that up to +11.5. We’re going to go the other way with Villanova (9-4) and take the 5 teaser points off their -12.5 give to DePaul (8-4) and make them -7.5.

We’re going to avoid the over/under on these games but if we had to pick we’d add the +5 to both the Temple-UCF 132.5 and to the Villanova-DePaul 139 and take the under in both games.
