Against The Spread Pick
The Tulane Green Wave and the Houston Cougars face off on Thursday and in this game the value lies with the Cougars. This is not a good Tulane team, and the Cougars do a good job of beating up on bad teams. Three games ago they beat USF by 19 points, and the reason was their defense giving up only 49 points. Over the last five games the Green Wave are averaging only 58 points and that will their downfall. The Green Wave are 3-7 against the spread in their last ten meetings. Back the Cougars to win this game in blowout fashion and cover the spread with ease.
Over Under Pick
This is a total you should stay away from because of how many points the Cougars could score. Over the last five games the Green Wave are averaging only 58 points, while the Cougars are giving up only 57 points. With the lack of Green Wave scoring, the total should stay low enough to cash the under. The under is 6-2 in the Cougars last eight home games. It’s a lean but back the under.
