Tulsa has won the last two meetings in 2020 and 2021 in overtime. Both teams are close in scoring offense averaging about 33 points per game. But Tulane has a dominant defense allowing just 20 points per game vs FBS foes and 5.0 yards per play. Tulsa has allowed 36 PPG vs FBS opponents including a league-worst 231 rushing YPG vs FBS foes.

Tulane vs Tulsa Best Bet

Tulane is 7-1 and has covered 4-straight games. Tulsa is 3-5 and on a 0-3 ATS slide. Tulane enters off a bye week and a situational edge, but the line has adjusted too much considering wins and losses and Tulsa is being discounted too much as a capable team. Check the status of QB Davis Brin, but Braylon Braxton did pass for 120 yards and 2 TD's last week in his best relief performance.
Tulane was laying 12 points on the road two games ago against South Florida, who may be the worst team in the league with the worst defense. Tulane won 45-31. South Florida's offense is also near the bottom of the league and the worst passing offense other than Navy, who essentially doesn't pass with their run-heavy option offense.
Tulsa also hung with Ole Miss in a 35-27 loss on the road as +21 point underdog in a near even yardage and first down game. Tulsa led 14-7 before QB Brin left with injury as well. The Hurricane are capable and look live this week despite a losing record. Tulane opened a 10-point favorite Sunday in Las Vegas and we agree with the move downward supporting Tulsa.
Bet: Tulsa +7.5 (-115)
