The Tulsa Golden Hurricane are dreadful defensively, and it makes them hard to trust on the road. Even more of an issue here when you consider the Houston Cougars are 10th in passing offense and 14th in scoring offense. It's also senior day for a Houston roster that has 17 seniors. Tulsa isn't covering numbers this season despite being underdogs most nights. I'll take Houston in a double-digit victory.
