The Bulls are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. American Athletic Conference and 3-10-2 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Golden Hurricane are 23-8 ATS in their last 31 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
USF isn't a good team regardless, but its even worse when they don't have a healthy Perry on the court. Tulsa is the best team in the AAC right now and should have little trouble covering this number by winning in a blowout.
