Temple Owls vs Houston Cougars Predictions 1/22/2023


It is simple to understand why the Cougars are ranked as the best team in college basketball. With an outstanding offense and stout defense, Houston is 18-1 overall and unbeaten in conference play.


Simply covering the spread must seem like a straight-up victory to most of its rivals. In their earlier this week 20-point road victory at Tulane, the Cougars outscored the Green Wave 40-28 in the second half with a strong finish.


Houston played hard until the final horn, scoring 55.4 percent of their points from the field and going 12-for-24 from the three-point range.


Yet again, it prevailed in the battle for rebounds (35-27) and split the basketball (20 assists). Houston ranks 85th in terms of its scoring average (76.2), field goal percentage (47.1%), and three-point percentage (35.7%). (98th).


The Cougars average 36.9 rebounds per game (13th), have a +10.1 rebounding margin, and make 71.6 percent of their 162 free throw attempts. 


  • The Houston Cougars are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Houston’s previous 8 meetings. 
  • The Cougars are 9-0 SU in their last 9 matches.

Temple Owls vs #1 Houston Cougars. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Temple Owls. On Sunday, Temple won’t defeat Houston, but it will cover the spread.


The Owls’ defense is strong enough for them to be competitive for a while and guard the three-point line. They will also maximize their chances to score points at the foul line.


The Owls’ free-throw percentage is 17th in the NCAA, and they frequently went to the line in their most recent game (31 FTs).


Houston only covered the spread in six of its last 10 games overall, despite the fact that it is winning straight-up. Its 7-5 ATS home record is also not particularly impressive.


While on the road this year, the Owls have a 3-1-1 ATS record. The Temple Owls will win to a predicted score of 76-56.
