Randy’s Free Pick

Neither team is playing well, so this sort of chalk is a bit insane, but it’s an indication of just how bad Tulsa is. UCF is the head and shoulders better team despite its recent stretch, and it wins at home by an average of 10 points. Also, 6 of UCF’s 11 covers this season have come at home. Tulsa is terrible, no matter how you slice it. It’s the chalk or pass for me.
