The Green Wave have won five of their last eight games, but are coming off an embarrassing road loss to Florida International in which they shot just 35.2 percent from the field. The Green Wave are now just 2-14 SU this season when allowing 70 or more points. On the season, they average 64.7 points on 41.4 percent shooting and give up 70.5 points on 44.2 percent shooting. They score 66.5 points at home and allow 65.3 points. ATS, they are 13-11 overall and 8-4 at home.
Usually I like to take the home team and the points when it’s the last home game of the season, but the Green Wave simply don’t have enough offensive firepower to keep up in this game. The Golden Eagles are as balanced as a team in the C-USA and have won seven of their last nine games by double digits.
Sure, they have struggled on the road this season, but they’re also 5-1 ATS in their last six meetings against Tulane, while the favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings as well.
Take the better team and the chalk in the last regular season C-USA matchup.
