Memphis vs Tulane Prediction & Pick
It's easy to think of this Tulane start as a fluke and chalk it up to a soft conference. This Green Wave team is a legitimate AAC contender, though. Head coach Willie Fritz's squad has taken down two ranked opponents already and owns an average scoring margin of +11.3 points (No. 23 in FBS).
There's no reason to stop trusting Tulane to keep up their momentum in front of the home crowd on Saturday. Memphis is 1-6 straight up in its last six away games and enters this game deflated after two crushing losses. The Green Wave jump to an early lead here and hold off a late Tigers comeback.
Final Score Prediction: Memphis: 24 | Tulane: 30

Memphis vs Tulane Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Tigers have nothing to lose at this point and have the talent to pull off an upset, so shifting gears to the point total is the best way to go here. It's worth mentioning that the under has hit in each of Tulane's last seven home games against Memphis as well as in nine of Tulane's last 12 games overall.
Memphis' offense is built around a consistent passing attack, yet Tulane is only giving up 186.0 yards through the air per contest (No. 16 in FBS). Forcing the Tigers to rely on the ground game will keep the clock moving in this one. Look for the Green Wave defense to make enough stops when it counts.
Bet: Under 56.5 Points (-115)
