Tulane vs Wichita State Prediction & Pick

Both sides have gotten similar offensive production lately. While Tulane is averaging 77 points in its last four games, Wichita State has put up 74.8 PPG over that span. Having said that, the Shockers' defense has been much more reliable during that stretch, allowing just 67.8 PPG while the Green Wave have surrendered 81.5 PPG.

It was also less than two weeks ago when Wichita State picked up an 83-76 win over Tulane. Though the Green Wave's offense wasn't completely iced out, the Shockers never trailed for a single second. A big part of that had to do with Wichita State winning the rebounding battle 35-25.

Tulane might be the favorite, but its losing record in neutral site games (2-3) this season calls for concern. Wichita State proved that it was the better team not that long ago, so look for the Shockers to advance.

Final Score Prediction: Wichita State: 77 | Tulane: 74

Tulane vs Wichita State Best Bet

For tonight's best bet, I recommend backing Wichita State as the +1.5 underdog. Tulane has been terrible against the spread, going 1-5 ATS in its last six AAC matchups while failing to cover the spread in each of its last five outings overall. Meanwhile, the Shockers are 5-1 ATS in their last six contests and 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games played in March.

With Wichita State getting hot at the right time, expect the Shockers to pull through on the spread.

Bet: Wichita State +1.5 (-102)
