Temple vs Houston Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks

In the previous matchup between these two teams this season, the Owls gave Houston all they could handle before falling just short of an upset. Houston survived, 66-61, and shot just 18% from long range in Philadelphia. There were many times that Houston had a large lead on Temple, but they just couldn’t put them away.

With the AAC regular season title already wrapped up, the “only” thing Houston has left to play for is seeding in the NCAA tournament. With all the craziness and major upsets taking place across the country, Houston can make a serious run at a two seed if things fall into place. The Cougars are ready to pounce and will come out firing. With their three-point shots likely falling at a much higher clip, they should be able to cover the spread.
