Temple vs UCF College Football Picks, Odds, Predictions 10/30/2021

The UCF Knights and the Temple Owls meet in AAC college football action from Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday afternoon.

The UCF Knights will be looking to build on a 24-7 win over Memphis in their last game. Mikey Keene has thrown for 631 yards, 5 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on 61.4% passing while Isaiah Bowser and Johnny Richardson have combined for 770 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns this season. Ryan O’Keefe leads the Knights with 41 grabs for 416 yards while Brandon Johnson has 7 receiving touchdowns and 281 yards and Jaylon Robinson has 234 receiving yards as well this year. On defense, Bryson Armstrong leads the Knights with 60 total tackles while Big Kat Bryant and Josh Celiscar each have 3 sacks on the year for the UCF defense.

The Temple Owls will be out to bounce back from a 34-14 loss at the hands of USF in their last game. D’Wan Mathis has thrown for 1,065 yards, 6 touchdowns and 4 picks on 60.8% passing while Edward Saydee leads the Owls with 218 rushing yards while two other Temple rushers have at least 100 rushing yards this season. Randle Jones and Jose Barbon each have 300+ receiving yards for Temple while Amad Anderson Jr. has 210 receiving yards and three other Owls have at least 100 receiving yards on the year. On defense, M.J. Griffin leads Temple with 44 total tackles while Manny Walker has a pair of interceptions and William Kwenkeu has a team-high 3 sacks on the year.

UCF is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss. Temple is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss.

I get why UCF would be laying points, but this feels like too many points to give up with a UCF team that’s yet to cover a game on the road this season and are already 0-2 ATS this season as a road favorite. Temple has put up more than their fair share of clunkers this season and the loss to UCF does very little for my confidence with the Owls, but this isn’t the same UCF team that we’re used to seeing blow teams away. Give me Temple and the points here.
