Money line


There was no money line at the time of publication, but it was still not worth pursuing.

Against the spread

HOUSTON -20.5 (-105) should be able to take advantage of a terrible Tulsa defense to run away with this game. And the Golden Hurricane will have trouble solving the nation’s best scoring defense.

The Cougars are 7-1 ATS as a 20-or-more-point favorite, and the Golden Hurricane are 0-2 ATS in 2 games this season as an 8-or-more-point underdog.


UNDER 133.5 (-110) it’s the show.

The Under has hit in 7 straight for the Golden Hurricane. Tulsa has struggled offensively, going for just 69.0 PPG. While the Golden Hurricane aren’t great defensively, they have held the opposition to just 26.2% from behind the 3-point line, ranking 6th in the country.

The Cougars are good offensively, but not great. This team is ranked so high because of the suffocating defense. Houston is first in the nation allowing just 49.8 PPG and is limiting the opposition to 32.7% from the field, also best in the nation.
