Matchup History

Houston’s 89-50 win back on December 28th, 2022, made it three straight wins for the Cougars in this head-to-head matchup.


Tulsa is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a double-digit loss at home and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 games overall. Houston is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 home games.


I’m backing the under here. This spread is way too thick to mess with even if I could see Houston winning this one by 30. I just don’t know if I trust Tulsa’s offense to do enough to help push this game towards the over and Houston may just go through the motions and just get in and get out with a win. I’ll back the under in this game.
