Tulane is 13-6 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games, and 7-0 against the spread following a double-digit home loss. Houston is 1-5 against the spread following a win. The favorite has covered the point spread in eight of the last 11 meetings of these two.
At worst this game is closer than this so I will take Houston with what looks to be too many points.
