The South Florida Bulls and Tulane Green Wave face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the Devlin Fieldhouse. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was Tulane that won 62-59. 

South Florida comes into this game a 5-8 record overall and they have gone 5-8 against the spread. South Florida has lost two games in a row to Houston and Wymong. In the last game against the Cougars the defense really struggled giving up 83 points. South Florida wants to play a slower pace averaging only 57.5 points while their defense is giving up 61.5 points per game. Guard Caleb Murphy has been the top player for South Florida averaging 12.5 points while shooting 43.5 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Tulane Green Wave who sit with a 5-7 record overall but they are coming off a disappointing loss. Tulane’s defense really struggled in the last game giving up 88 points and that led to the 10 point defeat. The Green Wave are averaging 73.5 points while their defense is giving up 73.8 points per game. Guard Jalen COok has been the top player for Tulane averaging 19.6 points while shooting 47.8 percent from the field and 46.2 percent from behind the three point line. If Tulane wants to find success in this game, they should try to keep the pace fast and make life tough on the South Florida defense.

The under is 11-3 in South Florida’s last 14 games overall. South Florida is 11-5-1 against the spread in their last 17 road games. The road team is 9-3 against the spread in the last 12 meetings between Tulane and South Florida. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. 

I expect Tulane is going to push the pace of this game, and South Florida will find offensive success against a bad Green Wave defense. With this game being faster paced there will be plenty of scoring and the over is going to cash. In terms of the side it’s a lean to South Florida to cover the spread.
