This was always going to be a tough season for all involved, so it is perhaps no real surprise that there are now just 3 teams in the top 25 who are sitting with unbeaten records in what is still the very early stages of the season. We are seeing some traditional powerhouses struggle to get traction to this point in the season. Whether that has anything to do with the lack of fans and the fear of COVID is tough to say, but it’s becoming obvious that some teams are handling things better than other. The Houston Cougars are one team that have started the season well and they will be back at home on Saturday afternoon to face the Tulane Green Wave. At the time of writing, the College Basketball odds for this game have yet to be posted, so be sure to check back in for updates.

Why bet on the Tulane Green Wave
One of the problems that Tulane has been facing this season is staying consistent for an extended period of time. They are 6-2 on the season, but those losses have come in their last 4 games. Making matters worse for the Green Wave is that the losses to Memphis and East Carolina were conference losses, so they are now sitting at 1-2 in the AAC. While they have been good at home, they are 0-1 on the road, which could be a problem for what will be a tough trip to Houston. They have not been a bad pick against the spread, going 5-3 ATS. They are likely to be the underdog here and are 3-1 ATS when playing with that label. 6 of their 8 games this season have fallen UNDER the point total.
Why bet on the Houston Cougars
The Houston Cougars are off to a fine start this season, going 9-1 SU through their first 10 games, with their lone loss coming on the road to Tulsa. That loss has them sitting at 4-1 in the AAC, which has them in a tie with the Golden Hurricane for first. The Cougars have been fantastic in their own building, going a perfect 6-0 SU at home to this point. They are, though, just 3-3 against the spread in those 6 home games, going 6-4 ATS overall. The Cougars have very much been trending towards the UNDER, with 7 of their 10 games this season going that route. They are on a run where the UNDER has hit in 4 of their last 5 games.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
Without knowing the odds, it is tough to make accurate picks, but what I do like are the Cougars straight up and the UNDER.
Pick: Tulane Green Wave 64 Houston Cougars 68
