College Basketball Betting Trends
The favorite is 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The road team is 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings.
The Golden Hurricane are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Tulsa is 4-1 ATS in its last five Wednesday games.
The Golden Hurricane have played some good basketball over the last couple of weeks, even beating a very good Houston squad by two points to start the streak. The crowd should be well invested into tonight's contest against a top 25 opponent and I think Tulsa matches up well as it leans on its defense while facing a team that has offensive deficiencies. I'm taking the home dogs tonight and a bet on the moneyline could also be considered.
