The UCF Knights and Tulane Green Wave face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at Devlin Fieldhouse. When these two teams faced off on January 22nd it was UCF that won 68-66. 

Darius Johnson was the top player for UCF scoring 17 points and grabbing seven rebounds. Jaylen Forbes was the top player for Tulane scoring 17 points. 

Central Florida comes into this game with a 17-9 record and they have gone 11-15 against the spread. In the last game against Cincinnati, Central Florida scored 75 points and that led to the easy victory. Central Florida is averaging 70.3 points while their defense is giving up 67.3 points per game.

On the other side of this matchup is the Tulane Green Wave who sit with a 12-13 record overall and they have gone 15-10 against the spread. Tulane has lost two games in a row including the last game against Temple. The defense struggled giving up 75 points and that led to the defeat. Tulane is averaging 73.4 points while their defense is giving up 71.7 points per game. Guard Jalen Cook has been the top player for Tulane averaging 18 points while shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from behind the three point line. 

Tulane is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games following a straight up loss. UCF is 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games. The over is 7-0 in Tulane’s last seven games overall. The under is 4-1 in Tulane’s last five games against a team with a winning straight up record. 

I don’t trust this Tulane team especially with their defense and that is going to be the difference in this game. Look for UCF to run up the score against Tulane and with their better defense they will slow down the Tulane offense. Back UCF against the spread.
