Southern Methodist Mustangs vs Tulane Green Wave betting preview
It’s hard to bet on Tulane considering that they allowed almost 500 yards in the nationally televised game against Houston. Now they are tasked with stopping another explosive offense led by SMU quarterback Shane Buechele who has amassed 10 touchdowns in just four games. For as good as SMU has looked it is important to realize that they played against doormats early in the year like North Texas and Stephen F. Austin.
Tulane’s offense has looked good and bad at times. The one area they have looked good is on defense and they know how to force turnovers. In the game against Houston, they forced five and turned those mistakes into instant points.
SMU vs Tulane pick against the spread
Although we bet on Houston to beat Tulane a week ago, we are now backing Tulane in this game. They have a good defense that will cause turnovers and on offense, they can control the time of possession with a strong running game. The Mustangs are 1-5 against the spread (ATS in the last 6 road games and in the last six games that they have played on Friday night. Tulane has covered in seven of the last eight home games and they are the best bet in this game.
