Temple is 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games against a team with a losing record and 42-18 ATS in their last 60 conference games while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games overall. Tulane is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games as a favorite while the over is 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. Temple is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
This is a hard one to call as Temple’s a better team than what we’ve seen so far, but they’ve allowed at least 31 points in all three games this season and Tulane, despite a 2-4 record is still a really good offensive team. On the other hand, Tulane can score but are also terrible on defense and Temple’s shown an ability to put points on the board as well. I think the side is too close to call, so I’ll side with the play I’m more confident in for this matchup, and that’s the over.
