Tulsa falls to Navy
The Tulsa Golden Hurricanes are coming off a 45-17 loss at home to Navy last weekend for a second straight loss. Tulsa is now 2-4 on the season, 0-2 in the AAC, 3-3 against the spread and 4-2 with the under.
Tulsa has struggled on offense this year, averaging just 23.3 points and 379.2 yards per contest. Defensively, Tulsa is giving up 32.2 points and 396.2 yards per contest. Zach Smith has thrown or 1,618 yards and 10 touchdowns to lead the offense while Shamari Brooks is the leading rusher with 464 yards and four scores. Keylon Stokes is the team’s leading receiver with 27 catches for 467 yards and four touchdowns.
Bearcats on a hot streak
Cincinnati is riding a four-game win streak right now following a 38-23 win at Houston last weekend. The Bearcats are now 5-1 on the season, 2-0 in the AAC, 5-1 against the spread and 4-2 with the under.
The Bearcats are led by their defense this season, allowing 21.7 points and 339.3 yards per game. Offensively, Cincinnati is putting up 29.3 points and 395 yards per contest. Desmond Ridder has thrown for 1,227 yards and 13 touchdowns to lead the offense while Michael Warren II is the leading rusher with 463 yards and four scores. Alec Pierce has 17 catches for 347 yards and two touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
Tulsa has hit the over in five of their last six conference games, but the Hurricanes are 13-4 with the under in their last 17 games following a loss.
The Bearcats are 23-9 with the under in their last 32 games against a losing team and 4-1 with the under in their last five games on fieldturf.
These two have hit the over in their last two meetings, going over 75 points in both of them. The Golden Hurricanes are struggling to make stops this year, but Cincinnati isn’t an offense that is terribly overwhelming. The Bearcats are led by their defense and I think they can handle Tulsa. They held an explosive UCF offense to 27 points at home a few weeks ago. I wouldn’t expect for much from the Hurricanes.
