College Basketball Betting Trends


The Cougars are 8-1 ATS in their last nine road games. Houston is 16-5-1 ATS in its last 22 American Athletic Conference games.


The Golden Hurricane are 4-1 ATS in their last five Sunday games. Tulsa is 6-2 ATS in its last eight home games. 


Houston has a top 15 defense nationally, while Tulsa struggles offensively and that will likely continue here. With the Cougars having a top-notch performance on the offensive end earlier this week, this could be another impressive victory and this time on the road. I'm taking the better team and giving the points.
