Temple vs Tulane Betting Prediction

Both of these teams have struggled in recent games, but Temple is on a six game losing streak and will be on the road for this game. The Owls are only shooting 37.9% from the field, which is one of the lowest in the country, while Tulane is shooting 48.6% from the field. Tulane’s offense has been very dangerous this year, but their defense is allowing 79.3 points against per game. Tulane loves to get into high scoring games and I think the Temple offense will find some success here. Take the over in this game.
