Tulane is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 September games. The under is 6-1 in Tulane’s last 7 games. Kansas State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games. The under is 4-1 in Kansas State’s last 5 games.
Both of these teams have held their opponents to very limited points and yards this season, but Tulane has not played anyone remotely good. Kansas State has been able to mostly run the ball and doesn’t even average over 100 passing yards per game. I think both teams will try running the ball, which will chew the clock. I am taking the under here.
