Frazier is the top scorer for Tulane on the year with 16.0 PPG, and Cameron Reynolds has 15.2 PPG. Also in the double-figures club for the Green Wave are Samir Sehic (10.6 PPG), Ray Ona Embo (10.1 PPG) and Jordan Cornish (10.0 PPG).
Over on the UCF side, they’re sitting at 17-12 on the year. The Knights have lost their last three games, and fell to Wichita State in OT on Thursday. In that one, Central Florida forward AJ Davis put up 31 points.
BJ Taylor is the top scorer for the Knights on the year with 15.2 PPG in 13 games. Davis (12.4 PPG; 8.0 RPG) and Tacko Fall (11.3 PPG; 7.3 RPG) are also in double-figures for UCF this season.
The Wave are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 overall and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 versus the AAC and the under is 5-2 in their last seven Sunday games. Tulane is also 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 Sunday games and the over is 41-19 in their last 60 versus the AAC.
Meanwhile, the Knights are 7-1 ATS in their last eight Sunday games and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 home games. UCF is also 7-3 ATS in their last 10 following an aTS win and 9-4 ATS in the last 13 following a straight-up loss.
Tulane has a pretty good offense this year, but they came up with just 49 points on Thursday against a good Bearcats team. The Green Wave have otherwise been scoring reasonably well, just not winning games. UCF’s offense hasn’t been inspiring a lot of confidence lately aside from that OT loss to the Shockers, so I’m going with Tulane to cover here.
