Tulsa is 7-2 against the spread following a win, 23-9 against the spread in their last 32 home games, and 14-6 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. SMU is 4-1-2 against the spread in their last seven games, 2-5 against the spread following a loss, and 3-1-1 against the spread in their last seven Saturday games. The road team is 22-6-1 in the last 29 meetings of these two.
The total is set at 122 but I see this one going voer that so my free pic is the over. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
