2014-15 Temple Owls were uncharacteristically picked to finish near the bottom of the American Athletic Conference, last season was catastrophic for the proud program. Senior guard Will Cummings is an All-Conference selection and forward Mark Williams is strong on the blocks and can also stretch a defense with a nice jumper. After winning their first two, this season Temple has dropped two in a row. Temple is 7-1 Against The spread their last eight played on Tuesday’s, and the over is 17-8 the Owls last 25 at home. Temple needs the win more the Pennsylvania does, they are the more talented team but if Penn can make some shots they have a chance to upset their cross-town rivals. The key to a Temple win is to feed the big men in the post.
