|Over 51.5 (-112) @ Draftkings|
I'm playing on Tulane/Tulsa OVER the total. Tulsa scored only 28 points last time out. However, in its previous three games, the Golden Hurricane tallied 34, 42 and 34. Facing what I still believe to be a porous Tulane defense, I expect them to "bounce back" with a huge offensive outburst. They're going to need to, in order to keep up with a Tulane offense which is firing on all cylinders. The Green Wave have been favored in their past few games and they've played sound defense in winning those. They've now allowed 27 or fewer points all six times that they were favored. However, the numbers tell a different story when Tulane has been an underdog. The Green Wave have been underdogs three times this season and they allowed 51, 37 and 49 points. The Green Wave topped 30 in each of those games themselves, making for a perfect 3-0 OVER mark when they've been underdogs. Those games finished with 85, 71 and 80 combined points, respectively. After scoring 38 in three straight games, the Green Wave have now quietly scored more than 30 points in seven straight games, including 66 in one of those. Last year's game finished with 64 points, bringing the OVER to 5-1 the past six in this series. Those five "overs" had combined scores of 64, 90, 77, 79 and 69. Expect another high-scoring affair.
