2018 Memphis Tigers Betting Odds

NCAA Football Betting: There will be continuity at the top with coach Mike Norvell around for another season after extending his deal in December. A hot coaching prospect after delivering the Memphis Tigers 10 wins last year, Norvell was linked to openings at Arkansas, Florida and Ole Miss. But he elected to stay at Memphis to take care of some unfinished business. The Tigers got back to the top of the AAC West last season and came oh so close to knocking off UCF in the conference championship, losing in double overtime. And the season ended with a third straight bowl loss, leaving a sour taste in the mouth of Memphis fans.

Norvell has kept the program on solid ground after the departure of Justin Fuente, winning 18 games in his two seasons. However, he hasn’t won a conference championship or a bowl game during his time. The Tigers will be in the running for another division crown and AAC title, but just how good they will be depends on finding a quarterback. Riley Ferguson was a stud after replacing Paxton Lynch. Now a successor for Ferguson is tops on the to-do list.

David Moore, who was Ferguson’s backup last season, is the likely choice to take over in 2018. He played sparingly throwing just 10 passes with a touchdown. As a dual-threat, Moore’s ability to run the football will separate him from the crowd that includes Arizona State transfer Brady White. Moore will have help from perhaps the best backfield in the conference. Darren Henderson rushed for 1,154 yards in 2017, the Tigers’ first 1,000-yard man in eight seasons. Patrick Taylor Jr. added 866 yards and a team-best 13 rushing touchdowns.

The Tigers struggled defensively at times last season, allowing 466 total yards and 32.5 points per game. Eight starters return from that group, but they need to be better. They have a rising star in cornerback T.J. Carter, who intercepted five passes as a freshman and was all over the field. There is plenty of experience and depth, but the unit lacks big play performers outside of Carter. The hope is that someone steps up to take the role. The Tigers are good enough to compete for another division title, but the margin for error is smaller than last year.

Since becoming a major college program in 1960, the university hasn’t made the best decisions regarding its football team. However, the new era of Tigers football started off well enough. With Billy Murphy leading the way, the Tigers went 33-5 from 1960 to 1963, putting together a 9-0-1 record in the final season of that stretch. Murphy led the club to its first bowl appearance following the 1971 season, beating San Jose State in the Pasadena Bowl. Murphy retired following that season as the program’s all-time leader in wins with 81.

The program sifted through coaches and mediocre to putrid seasons for the next three decades until Tommy West was hired in 2001. Three years into his appointment, West delivered a then program record-tying nine wins and returned the Tigers to their first bowl game since 1971. He led the team to five bowls in six seasons however he was fired after going 2-10 in 2009.

With limited resources, Memphis turned to inexperienced Larry Porter as the next coach and the dark days of Tigers football continued. In what many consider one of the worst head coaching tenures in college football, Porter was fired after two seasons and three wins. With support dwindling, Memphis turned to Justin Fuente. And he delivered. In his third season, and the program’s first in the American Athletic Conference, Memphis won 10 games for the first time. Fuente was lured away by Virginia Tech, but the Tigers kept going under Mike Norvell, posting another 10-win season in 2017.
