Matchup History

UCF is 2-12 ATS in their last 14 games following a loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a loss while the over is 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. Tulsa is 2-10-2 ATS in their last 14 home games and 1-6-2 ATS in their last 9 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games following an ATS win.


I’m backing the Knights here. Never easy to lay this many points with a team that’s lost three straight on the road on Senior day, but that’s how bad this Tulsa team has been this season, losing five straight by 20+, including a 44-point beatdown loss to UCF in the first meeting a couple of weeks ago. This Tulsa team is an absolute disaster and I look for UCF to lay the hammer here. Give me UCF big.
