SMU Mustangs vs Memphis Tigers 1/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The SMU Mustangs will meet with the Memphis Tigers in an American Athletic Conference clash in FedEx Forum Memphis, TN, on Thursday at 7:00 PM (EST). SMU is off to a 4-1 conference start and will face host Memphis on Thursday in search of another win.

 

While the Tigers had ups and downs during the season, the Mustangs went 10-1 since their win against Sam Houston on November 24. Following that, came victories against UNLV, Vanderbilt, Dayton, UCF, and Tulane.

 

Southern Methodist, at 13-4, is on a quest to recapture the AAC and finish a successful reconstruction under Tim Jankovich. SMU defeated Tulane 75-66 on Saturday, as Kendric Davis delivered 24 points on 7-10 3-point shooting.

 

The Mustangs’ next game, against Wichita State, was postponed due to COVID. SMU skipped two matches so far this season because of the pandemic protocol. Southern Methodist scores 76.9 ppg while surrendering 68.2.

 

The Mustangs have a good rebounding, rim-protection, and 3-point shooting team. Davis (21.7 ppg, 5.0 assists per game, 4.0 rebounds per game) will almost certainly be on an NBA team by this time next year. For the time being, the 5’11 guard dominates his team’s capable offering.

 

  • The Southern Methodist University Mustangs are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 matches.
  • Southern Methodist is 13-6 ATS in their last 19 matches against Memphis.
  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Southern Methodist’s last 10 matches in the AAC.

SMU Mustangs vs Memphis Tigers Predictions 1/20/2022

 

The Tigers are presently in the midst of a losing run due to their inconsistent season. The Tigers rushed to a 5-0 start this year under an ensemble of coaches that included Penny Hardaway, Larry Brown, and Rasheed Wallace before suffering four defeats to deflate the group’s preseason excitement.

 

Memphis then went 5-4, splitting games with Alabama and Tulane before winning and losing a pair to finish with a 9-7 (3-3 AAC) record. Vegas has no idea what to make of Memphis and overvalued the team, owing to its big-name coaches. As a result, the Tigers are 5-10-1 against the spread.

 

On any given night, an offensively constructed squad like Memphis may erupt as quickly as it can disintegrate. The Tigers scored 77.0 ppg while giving up 70.7 ppg. Those figures are based on a schedule that ranks 30th in the country.

 

While Memphis’ defense is a problem, turnovers (17.9%) suffocated Hardaway’s team’s rim-protection and forced turnovers. Opponents merely played the passing lane while holding the Tigers’ offense for its lack of discipline. On Thursday, SMU should receive a few easy baskets.

 

  • The University of Memphis Tigers is 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 matches.
  • Memphis is 14-1 SU in their last 15 matches at home.
  • The Tigers are 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 matches in the American Athletic Conference.

SMU Mustangs vs Memphis Tigers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the SMU Mustangs. Memphis can erupt into life and provide near-elite performances on any given occasion.

 

The Tigers’ 9-7 record reflects strong wins, offensive outbursts, and a lot of positives. Despite the program’s instructional quality, Memphis struggled to live up to the preseason buzz due to turnovers and uneven play.

 

Southern Methodist, on the other hand, is a pillar of consistency in CBB’s shifting environment after capturing 10-of-11 games.The Mustangs, led by pro-level PG Kendric Davis, are too much for the Tigers with Memphis’ 5-10-1 ATS record. The SMU Mustangs will win to a predicted score of 74-69.
