Tulsa vs Memphis Prediction & Pick
Tulsa won last year's meeting 35-29 despite Memphis gaining 614 yards - 200 more than Tulsa. Golden Hurricane WR Keylon Stokes is among the elite receivers in the ACC with 964 receiving yards at 17 yards per catch. He should increase his stats by chunk yardage going against a bottom AAC Memphis pass defense allowing 276 passing yards per game and 65% completions.
The Tigers and Hurricanes offensive stats are nearly identical in efficiency, yardage per game (421, 414), yards per play (58) and TD's (36, 34). But Tulsa QB Davis Brin is a game-time decision after missing last week's game (ankle), and Braylon Braxton went 13-of-25 for 146 yards in his first start against Tulane's No. 1 defense that allows just 307 yards per game including 180 passing yards per game.
Tulsa was run over at the point of attack last week by Tulane. But Memphis' ground game is poor and averages just 130 rushing yards per game. The Tigers will be passing more, but Tulsa's pass defense is statistically No. 2 in the AAC allowing just 176 passing yards per game and limited Tulane to 125 passing yards last week.
Final Score Prediction: Tulsa: 33 | Memphis: 30

Tulsa vs Memphis Best Bet
Memphis must win two of its final three games to be bowl-eligible for the ninth straight season, while the Golden Hurricane must win their final three games to qualify for the postseason for the third straight year.
Even with Tulsa's backup quarterback starting, this is a bit too many points for Memphis to spot. The Tigers have allowed each of their last four opponents to score at least 33 points with all four games going over the total. Tulsa is better than their record and stayed within 8 points of SEC's Ole Miss Rebels on the road. If Brin starts, the line will also drop.
