|Teams||Spread||Money Line||Total Points|

The 16-2 Cougars head to Tampa Bay, Florida to take on the 7-5 Bulls on Wednesday night. Houston was upset as a 16.5-point favorite its last game against East Carolina last Wednesday, 82-73. South Florida has not played in over a month because of a string of COVID-19 pandemic-related postponements. The Bulls’ last game was on Jan. 9 when they defeated the same East Carolina squad that Houston just lost to, 69-63. The looming question for tonight is how will South Florida respond following seven consecutive postponed games?
The Cougars are led by guard Quentin Grimes who leads the team with 16.2 points per game. Grimes has struggled over the past two games, however, shooting 4-of-18 from the field while failing to reach double figures in scoring in either contest.
The Bulls are led by guard David Collins who averages 12.2 points per game. As Collins’ goes, South Florida goes, at least when the team is allowed on the court. Collins has eclipsed 15 points in seven games and the Bulls are 4-2 in those games.
