Defensively, Memphis is giving up 23.3 points and 317.3 yards per game.
Tulane roughed up by OSU
Tulane had the unenviable task of going on the road to face Ohio State last week in Urban Meyer’s return to the sideline. The Green Wave lost 49-6 to fall to 1-2 on the year, 1-2 against the spread and 2-1 with the under. Tulane has hit the under in six of its last eight games as a program.
The Green Wave are allowing 30 points and 491.5 yards per game on defense this year, including nearly 200 rushing yards per game. Offensively, Tulane is putting up 22.3 points and 376.3 yards per game. The Wave have a nice 1-2 punch in the backfield with Corey Dauphine and Darius Bradwell, who have 527 combined rushing yards and five touchdowns. Under center, Jonathan Banks has thrown for 792 yards and five touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
Memphis is 6-2 with the over in its last eight games in September and 10-4 with the over in its last 14 games on fieldturf.
Tulane is 5-2 with the under in its last seven games on fieldturf and 4-1 with the under in its last five games after failing to cover.
The only game Memphis didn’t hit the over was a road trip to Navy. That’s a much different game than the one it will have with Tulane. The Tigers should be able to run all over the Green Wave and put up another huge point total. The Tulane offense should have some success at home as well, as the Green Wave have shown an ability to score behind a balanced offense.
