SMU vs Tulsa College Basketball Betting Prediction

Written by on December 28, 2015

There are a lot of games still to be played before 2015 comes to an end, which means you have plenty of opportunities to grow your bankroll heading into the New Year. If you like playing the ranked teams, then you will get your chance to do so when the SMU Mustangs head into Reynolds Center in Tulsa to square off against the Golden Hurricanes. The game is set for 5 PM EST on Tuesday, December 29 on ESPN2. It’s always tough to be against a team that has yet to be beaten, but there is always a first time for everything. I don’t think anyone believes that SMU can go through the season without taking a loss, but you have to ask if this is going to be the game where they finally fall. You might have a better opinion once the college basketball betting odds go live for this game, so be sure to come back to for all the latest NCAA hoops odds when they go live closer to game time.

A Close Look At The Mustangs vs Golden Hurricanes Basketball Betting Prediction

Why bet on the SMU Mustangs

As I have already said, SMU are coming into this one with a perfect 11-0 record, but that does not necessarily mean that they will be an overwhelming favorite. They have huffed and puffed their way to a few wins this season, including the 70-66 win over Colorado in their last game. SMU are just 3-4-0 ATS in their games that hit the board this season, although they have covered in 2 of their last 3. There have been a lot of points scored in their games, with the OVER sitting at 5-2-0 so far this season. The Mustangs are averaging 84.0 PPG, and are giving up 62.2 PPG.

Why bet on the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes

Tulsa are a very respectable 9-4 on the season, and already have an upset win under their belts, taking out #9 ranked Wichita State in their second game of the season. They are 4-2 on home court, and are proving to be a very tough out in every single game. They are 5-6-0 ATS this season, and are 3-2-0 ATS when playing on home court. The OVER/UNDER in Tulsa games this season is 5-6-0, although the OVER has only hit twice in their last games. The Golden Hurricanes are averaging 76.8 PPG, and are giving up 70.1 PPG.

My Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

While I like the Mustangs to pick up another win here, I think this one could very well go down to the wire. A close battle all the way, I think, and the definite potential for an upset.
