The Tulane Green Wave go on the road to take the floor with the SMU Mustangs in Saturday college basketball. 

The Tulane Green Wave are mired in a eight game slide capped off by a 75-50 defeat to Central Florida on Wednesday as an 11.5 point home dog.

Tulane was down 22 points heading to the locker room and never challenged with only 33.3% accuracy to lean on while committing 18 turnovers.

Samir Sehic gave the Green Wave eleven points and eight rebounds while Kevin Zhang  added ten points and  three yanks.

Tulane received nine points from Caleb Daniels followed by Blake Paul  who  contributed  eight points  and  12 rebounds.

The SMU Mustangs look to avoid a three game skid after dropping an 83-61 decision at Memphis as a three point road dog.

Southern Methodist lost control early as they faced a 17 point first half hole with Memphis holding a 45.2%-36.2% edge in shooting.

Jimmy Whitt Jr. was the top Mustangs option with 12 points, six boards and three assists with Isiaha Mike adding ten points and six rebounds.

Southern Methodist saw nine points from Nat Dixon followed by Ethan Chargois and Feron Hunt with eight points each with 15 combined rebounds.

Tulane Green Wave are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall and Tulane Green Wave are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games.  SMU Mustangs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and SMU Mustangs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. American Athletic Conference. Tulane Green Wave are 4-0-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and under is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings in Southern Methodist.

This is a big number for a game that shouldn’t feature a ton of points where the under looks more appealing then the side…

Pick:
Tulane +17

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
