College basketball odds on Temple last season saw the Owls go from a defensive team under John Chaney to an up-tempo, exciting team under new coach Fran Dunphy.

Basketball odds fans actually were excited to watch Temple a year ago.

College basketball odds experts followed Temple closely a year ago and were rewarded with many pointspread covers. Fans of college basketball odds know that Fran Dunphy, who led Pennsylvania to nine NCAA Tournaments in 17 years prior to coming to Temple, really got his offense to take hold before the end of the season. Fans of college basketball odds saw the Owls score 76.8 points per game last season and set a school-record for points in consecutive games. Temple's backcourt was superb for college basketball odds fans with Dionte Christmas (20.0 ppg.) and Mark Tyndale (19.4 ppg.). They were the first teammates in Atlantic 10 History to finish the year ranked first and second in the league in scoring. Fans of college basketball odds know that Tyndale was one of one of only two players in the league to rank among the top 20 in scoring, rebounding (6.7 rpg.) and assists (2.83 apg.). Many fans of college basketball odds may know that Christmas was named the league's Most Improved Player as he increased his scoring average by 16.5 points. Basketball odds experts know that the Owls do lose forward Dion Dacon but have newcomers Lavoy Allen and Micheal Eric. They also have 7-0 junior center Sergio Olmos. Experts that bet college basketball odds see that the Owls have junior guard Semaj Inge returning and return senior Chris Clark, who had a team-high 75 assists and committed just 25 turnovers.

There is no doubt that the duo of Christmas and Tyndale is explosive and can score for fans of college basketball odds. Another player that will provide some help is freshman Martavis Kee who many college basketball odds experts think could be a future star. Fans of basketball odds also should keep an eye on Ramone Moore as he has great potential.

The key for Temple according to college basketball odds experts is to get enough out of the frontcourt. Marshall and Ivory need to improve and Olmos needs to do more than just take up space. Allen will definitely help and newcomer Michael Eric could be a future star according to those that follow college basketball odds. Overall it could be an exciting season for fans of Temple basketball odds.
