Memphis enters Week 8 as one of three AAC squads ranked in the AP Top 25, alongside No. 21 Temple and No. 22 Houston, a first for The American since its inception in 2013.

The 6-0 Tigers ended a three-game winless streak against the spread by topping the Ole Miss Rebels 37-24 last weekend, picking up the ATS win as heavy 10-point road underdogs.

The 4-3 Pirates are just 1-2 ATS at home this season, 2-5 ATS in their last seven, and dropped a 20-10 decision to the Owls last season, the first meeting between the two teams in 19 years.

The Cougars jumped three places in the national rankings last weekend with a 42-7 beating of Tulane, easily covering as 21-point chalk, and can improve to 7-0 SU with a win when they visit Central Florida this weekend as 21.5-point favorites.

Houston is 12-2 SU over their last 14 games, 9-4-1 ATS, and a perfect 5-0, SU and ATS, in their last five as road chalk.
