The over is 6-2-1 in Cougars last 9 road games. The over is 5-2 in Golden Hurricane last 7 Saturday games. The favorite is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

The Houston Cougars are starting to heat up, and that includes winning their last five games by an average of 15.2 points. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane are a competitive team and don’t get blown out often, but they’ve also looked bad against much less talented teams than Houston. I simply trust Houston more in this spot. Thick line, but I’ll lay the chalk anyway.
