BIG AL's #1 COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAME OF THE WEEK!
Tulane Green Wave (0-0) at South Alabama Jaguars (1-0)
Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 7:30 pm
At 7:30 pm, our selection is on the Tulane minus the points over South Alabama. Last week, the Jaguars went into Hattiesburg, and upset Southern Miss, 32-21, as a 12-point underdog. Prior to that win, the Jaguars had not won away from home in 15 games. South Alabama will be back home for this game, but I don't believe a 2nd straight upset is in the offing. Indeed, the Jaguars fall into two negative "letdown" systems of mine that go against certain teams off upset wins that have records of 106-181 and 67-113 ATS since 1980. The Jaguars are an awful 35.7% ATS at home off a straight-up win, while Tulane has cashed 75% as a favorite vs. foes off upset wins. And the Green Wave's coach, Willie Fritz, has gone 28-13 ATS as a favorite in his career, whether here at Tulane (since 2016), or at Georgia Southern before that (2014-15). Take the Green Wave to blow out South Alabama. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
