The Memphis Tigers (18-9, 12-5 AAC) can virtually guarantee their spot in the 2022 NCAA Tournament bracket with a win over the No. 14 Houston Cougars (26-4, 15-2) on Sunday. The Tigers are a No. 11 seed in the March Madness 2022 bracket according to the latest bracketology from CBS’s Jerry Palm. They already stunned Houston once this season, upsetting then-No. 6 Houston 69-59 on Feb. 12. A Memphis win could move the Tigers out of the First Four range, while a loss would ratchet up the pressure heading into the 2022 AAC Tournament. You can stream the game on Paramount+.
Tipoff is set for noon ET at the FedEx Forum. The Cougars are 2.5-point favorites in the latest Memphis vs. Houston odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points is 137.5.

College basketball picks for Houston vs. Memphis
Before tuning into the Memphis vs. Houston game, you need to see the college basketball picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated an impressive profit of over $1,700 for $100 players on its top-rated college basketball picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen huge returns.
For Houston vs. Memphis the model is projecting these teams to go over the total. Memphis looked like a team that might not make the NCAA Tournament 2022 in the middle of January, but has now won nine of its last 10 games. The Tigers have been tearing it up on the offensive end of the court, scoring at least 80 points in five of those nine wins. They are trying to get out in transition as much as possible, ranked No. 40 in average possession length.
The Tigers are also dealing with severe turnover issues, though, which could lead to easy looks for the Cougars on Sunday. Houston tends to take advantage inside the arc, ranked No. 27 in two-point percentage. The Cougars have gone over the total in seven of their nine road games.
