|-12 HOU (-112) @ sportsinteraction|
I'm playing on HOUSTON. To their credit, the Golden Hurricane have played pretty well. Facing a superior and angry opponent, I believe that they run into a reality check tonight though. Last time out, Tulsa eked out a 1-point home win over Memphis. However, in their last road game, the Golden Hurricane got thumped by a score of 72-53. The Cougars haven't forgotten that the Golden Hurricane upset them, at Houston, on 12/29. This is a Houston team which is a perfect 8-0 SU and a profitable 6-2 ATS the past eight times it attempted to avenge a road loss. With an O/U line in the mid-120's, this is projected to be a fairly low-scoring game. That suits the Cougars just fine. They're a perfect 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS the past seven times that they played a home game with an O/U line in the 120s. Going back further finds them at 18-8 SU/ATS in that situation. The Tulsa loss was the Cougars' only defeat. They were up by as many as 11 in that game. They will have learned from that and will be determined to avoid a repeat. Expect them to keep the pedal to the metal the whole way, en route to a blowout victory.
