Tulane vs Memphis Prediction

Revenge could be in line this Sunday in the Home of Blues, as Memphis likely hasn’t forgotten about a narrow loss suffered in New Orleans Tulane last month. Memphis has shaken off a cold stretch with a pair of victories, but this feels like a big number to give a Green Wave team that needs to win now, and there’s a chance we’re in for another shootout. Both schools prefer to push the pace and trend well with the Over, so let’s back that for this AAC matchup.
