Last year, Temple had a 3-9 overall record and a 1-7 record in the American Athletic Conference. This season, Stan Drayton will begin leading the Owls as their head coach for the first time in his career.

 

The favorite to start at quarterback for Temple is D’Wan Mathis. Mathis passed for 1,223 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions last season.

 

Edward Haydee, who rushed for 330 yards and three scores last year, is the top returner. Darvon Hubbard, a transfer from Texas A&M, and Jakari Norwood, a transfer from Illinois, will both play a significant role.

  • The Temple Owls are 0-7 SU in their last 7 matches.

Temple Owls vs Duke Blue Devils Predictions 9/2/2022

 

Last year, the Duke Blue Devils ended 0-8 in the Atlantic Coast Conference and 3-9 overall. Although Riley Leonard was Duke’s starting quarterback last year, he only completed passes for 381 yards and one score.

 

If given enough area to go, Leonard possesses movement and may be challenging to stop. Jordan Waters, who ran for 197 yards as Rush Row’s backup last season, will be the primary back this year.

 

Jaylen Calhoun, who topped the Blue Devils in receiving last year with three touchdown grabs, is back in the receiving group.

 

Leonard will frequently search for Darrell Harding and Eli Pancol through the middle and on the sidelines. In 2021, Duke’s defense was dreadful, giving up 40 points and 518 yards per game.

 

The linebacker group, led by Dorian Mausi and Shaka Heyward, will be the team’s strength.

 

  • Duke is 0-8 SU in their last 8 matches. 
  • The Duke Blue Devils are 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches at home. 
  • The Blue Devils are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches in the American Athletic Conference.

Temple Owls vs Duke Blue Devils. The NCAAF pick for this game is the Duke Blue Devils. On opening day, Duke will defeat Temple at home, but this play is finished.

 

Both teams’ defenses are much below average, and Duke let up more than 40 points per game the previous year, so there are still a lot of gaps to be filled there.

 

In five of the previous seven games that Temple played against ACC opponents and in 18 of the last 26 home matches that Duke played, the OVER won.

 

The Duke Blue Devils will win a predicted best play of OVER 31-24.
