UAB vs. Tulsa Prediction

I’m on Tulsa here. I get why UAB is favored, but the reality is that Tulsa’s held their own in a lot of similar spots this season when they’ve had to take the step up in competition. UAB’s a solid team, but Tulsa’s best work this season from an ATS perspective has come at home and I think they make this one interesting on Sunday. Give me Tulsa and the points.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
