PICK: I’m going to lean Tulane here, but probably staying away. Neither team has scored all that well lately: Tulane has been at 61 or below in each of their last three outings and South Florida has been below 70 in each of their last five games. Still, the Green Wave can score fairly well when the matchup is right, and I think they can eke out a cover here.
