The UCF Knights are 6-3 ATS in their last nine games as a road favorite. The Tulane Green Wave are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as a home underdog. The UCF Knights have had an extra week to prepare, but they've lost three of their last four on the road and just lost to Tulsa as a 15-point favorite. The Tulane Green Wave have won all five games at home this season and four of those victories were decided by double-digit points. This will also be Tulane's last home game and there's 18 seniors on this roster. I'll take the free touchdown in a game Tulane will have a chance to win outright.
