No. 24 SMU is closing in on its second consecutive American Athletic Conference regular-season title and it's unlikely that Tulane will stand in the way of the Mustangs adding to their win total today.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Mustangs are 20.5-point home favorites over the Green Wave while the total currently sits at 136 points. While Tulane lugs a 10-18 record into today's game, SMU is 23-4 overall and 14-1 at home this season.
The Green Wave hasn't put up much of a fight as an underdog this season, going 4-9 against the spread in that role and 2-4 ATS in lined games when it’s a road dog. Tulane is also 2-7-1 at the betting window in its lat 10 games overall and 1-5-1 ATS in its last seven games coming off a loss.
The program also hasn't had much success covering versus SMU either. Tulane has failed to cover in four of its last five games versus the Mustangs and is winless at 0-4 ATS in its last four games at Southern Methodist. The favorite is also an incredible 11-0 against the number in the last 11 meetings between these two teams so don't be shy about laying the points today.
