Randy’s Free Pick
The Tulane Green Wave are the better side, but that's not saying much, and they're not playing great ball entering this contest. The East Carolina Pirates have hung around at times this year, and they're at their best at home, where they win by an average of 1.8 points and cover numbers. Tulane isn't lighting the world on fire. Give me the home dog.
