The Pirates are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win. The Golden Hurricane are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 5-0-1 in Pirates last 6 road games. The under is 18-7 in Golden Hurricane last 25 overall. The home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane are 8-5 ATS at home where they win by an average of 12.2 points. With the said, this line feels a bit too steep, especially when you consider Tulsa being 0-4 ATS this season when favored by 7.5 or more points. There's better bets on Wednesday's card, but I'll take my chances with the free points.
