The Tulsa Golden Hurricane and Tulane Green Wave face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at Yulman Stadium. 

Tough Little Stretch for Tulsa

Tulsa started the season with a little bit of success but they have lost four games in a row. In the last game against Charlotte, Tulsa scored 26 points but that wasn’t enough as they were defeated in overtime. Tulsa had some major issues moving the ball through the air. Kirk Francis completed 6 of his 16 passes for 74 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. Anthony Watkins finished with 24 carries for 146 yards and a touchdown. Tulsa is averaging 22.4 points while their defense is giving up 35.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 101st and they need to get the offense going here.

Tulane on the season is averaging 28.7 points while their defense is giving up 19.3 points per game. The offense is ranked 62nd in the league while the defense is ranked 25th.

Shane’s Free Pick

Tulane really played down to East Carolina in the last game, and I expect that is going to be the case again here. This Tulane offense isn’t going to run up the score and that is going to be the difference here as Tulsa is going to keep the game close, at least within the number. I expect Tulsa will score at least 21 points and that will be enough for them to keep it within two touchdowns, and they will cover the spread. 

Shane’s Pick Tulsa +23.5
