Houston Cougars -1

Houston is coming to the game here with the worse scoring defense when compared head to head. However, looking at the last game and it is easy to see the Cougars defense has started to struggle lately. The defense allowed a very weak offensive minded team in East Carolina to put in 52 points against them. Look for the Houston offense to do just as good against the struggling and sliding SMU team in this game here. Final Score Prediction, Houston Cougars win and cover ATS 42-21.
