Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Tulane Green Wave will play the Houston Cougars in an American Athletic Conference Game on Friday night at TDECU Stadium in Houston, Texas.

The Tulane Green Wave are 3-1 this season after they lost to Southern Miss by a score of 27-24 in Week 4. Tulane outgained Southern Miss by a total of 451-253, but turned the ball over once and went 1-3 on fourth down conversions in the loss. The Tulane offense is averaging 33.8 points per game with 248.8 passing yards per game and 179.8 rushing yards per game. Michael Pratt has thrown for 905 yards, seven touchdowns, and three interceptions, while also rushing for 197 yards and one touchdown for the Green Wave this season. Tyjae Spears has rushed for 205 yards and six scores, while Shae Wyatt has caught nine passes for 184 yards and one touchdown for Tulane. The Tulane defense is giving up 11.8 points per game and 228.8 yards per game.

The Houston Cougars are 2-2 this season after they defeated Rice by a score of 34-27 in their last game. Houston trailed 27-24 in the fourth quarter of this game, but was able to score 10 unanswered points for the win. The Houston offense is averaging 32.3 points per game with 248.3 passing yards per game and 144.8 rushing yards per game. Clayton Tune has thrown for 993 yards, seven touchdowns, and three interceptions, while also rushing for 137 yards and two touchdowns for the Cougars this season. Ta’Zhawn Henry has rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns, while Nathaniel Dell has caught 25 passes for 380 yards and three scores for Houston. The Houston defense is allowing 35.8 points per game and 442.8 yards per game.

Tulane is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games. The under is 7-2 in Tulane’s last 9 games. Houston is 12-4 ATS in their last 16 Friday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games. The over is 4-0 in Houston’s last 4 games. Tulane is 4-14 ATS in these two teams last 18 head to head meetings.

Houston had a lot of hype surrounding them coming into this season, but has struggled through four games. The Cougars defense has allowed 33 points in three of their last four games and needs to be a lot better if they want to compete in the AAC. Tulane had a nice win against Kansas State, but lost to Southern Miss last week. With how bad Houston’s defense has been playing, I am going to take the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
