Thursday Night CFB Totals Crusher

Houston vs SMU
We have two offenses that are currently known for their prolific abilities to points on the board in bunches. But with that said, one of these teams ( Houston) also has an above average defense, that held Tulsa to just 24 points on the road last time out, and Texas State to just 14 points in their last home game, and also played tough in Louisville pulling off the 34-31 upset thanks to a bend but dont break defense . Im betting because of the short week, both sides may not be 100% and not be as explosive out of the gate as usual, and for the Cougars defense, to limit visiting SMUs scoring opportunities.
I know since Chad Morris arrived on the Hilltop after five seasons as an offensive coordinator at Clemson and 16 years as a high school coach in Texas , the Ponies looked viable again.Dont get me wrong I like SMU new direction, but it wont be easy moving the ball here tonight, and wont be surprised if Morris backs off and trys to get the ground game to control the clock. Morris is a good coach and knows his teams limitations, and Im betting will play this game much more conservatively than many might expect. Houston’s last 29 games dating back 3 seasons has seen an average of 54.9 ppg go on the board. In home games with a total that is greater than or equal to 63 an average of 68.3 ppg went on the board, spanning 27 games.
Houston is 8-1 UNDER L/9 times when the total is greater than or equal to 63 with an average of 56.2 ppg getting registered. Once again from a historical trends perspective, Houston 12-1 UNDER after gaining 300 or more rushing yards which happened against Tulsa last Saturday with both teams combining for an average 53.1 ppg going on the score board.
