The over is 5-2 in Golden Hurricane last 7 games overall. The Bearcats are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The underdog is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Cincinnati Bearcats are the more talented team obviously and are going to get the benefit of the doubt from oddsmakers. However, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane have been competitive through 4 games and could easily be unbeaten with a bounce here or there. Tulsa has issues defensively, but the offense is 11th in the country in total yards and fourth in passing offense. Tulsa is explosive and can put points on the board. This is a big game at home, so the crowd will be out under the lights. I kind of like the points here.
