Against the Spread Pick

It is fair to say that the Green Wave are not having a good season. They enter this game on a four-game losing streak and now have a conference record of 2-6. One thing they have had success at is cover the spread on the road. In this department, they are 7-4. On the other side of this match-up SMU. They have a very good record, but because they are considered a mid-major, they cannot afford to lose this game to a bad team. One trend to note shows that the Green Wave have covered in five straight games with the Mustangs. With that in mind, I feel laying double-digits with SMU is too much, so I will take Tulane as a lean.

Over Under Pick

This is a total that looks too high from the start. At most books, the number set at 140. It is worth mentioning that neither team is averaging more than 67 points in their last five games. Both offenses have really showed down recently, so I do like for the under to be the play here. This is really only a lean because SMU has shown at times that they can score around the 80 mark when they get hot.
