Tulane vs Florida Atlantic Trends
TUL is 3-7 against the spread, with a 2-8 O/U record.
FAU is 4-6 ATS, with a 5-5 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Tulane survived a scare last weekend, and it’s described how their season has gone in conference play, and after being dominant against the spread in 2022, their last four games have been decided by one score or next. While they have experienced trouble covering, FAU has noticeable issues of their own, particularly behind center. After struggling with ECU at home, I like leaning on a strong effort from Tulane on both sides of the ball, which should lead to a sizable victory. Roll with Tulane in this AAC matchup, and give the Under a look, as the Green Wave have a positive trend with the lower number this season.
