The Take on Tulane
Tulane has played three games already this season (2-1) and none may have been more impressive than the last outing. The team had seven rushing touchdowns and Cameron Carroll scored a career-high three in the win over Southern Mississippi. Overall the Green Wave finished with 572 total yards and will now bring that offense into Houston.
From a betting point of view, this game is a blemish on Tulane’s record. The Green Wave are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 meetings and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Houston. The favorite is 13-3 ATS in their last 16 meetings.
Tulane vs Houston pick against the spread
Tulane’s offensive performance was against a week team and they will get an upgrade in competition on Thursday. Houston is a bit rattled without any real game experience and some rust to start the game is expected. However, Holgorsen met with his captains, and refocused his team, and urged them to focus on conference games. Tulane keeps this game close early, but a focused and energized Houston team will win and cover in their first game of the season.
