The Bearcats are 9-19 ATS in their last 28 road games and 8-18 ATS in their last 26 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Green Wave are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
Tulane won the earlier meeting just two weeks ago, but has been playing bad basketball overall. I like the Bearcats to get their revenge with a double-digit victory.
