Tulane vs Tulsa
First off, I like both of these teams and have all year. Tulsa has been my sleeper, as they've only played five games while Tulane has had nine. I've cashed, surprisingly I might add, with Tulane as small favorite a few times this year. Tulsa came back against SMU and really saved my week and they've stepped up to every challenge they've faced so far. Tulsa has been starting slow, even their coach has commented on the fact and I'm concerned that a recently and rarely ranked Tulsa squad starts off slow because "they know they can come back", but because they're facing a high-scoring well-coached ground attack, coming back becomes much more challenging. I'm going over 53.5 in this game because Tulane has scored fewer than 34 points only 3 times all year and those games they had 24, 27 and 31. If Tulsa starts of slow, we have the perfect over script unless their defense stymies the Green Wave. Tulsa allowed East Carolina to put up 30.
