When questions are starting to be asked about your performances or ability to win, the best thing that a team can do to answer back is to come up with a win that makes everyone sit up and take notice.

It has been a great season so far for the Mustangs, and they are sure to be favorites for this one. What you need to pay attention to here is the point spread, as the latest big win by SMU may have them given a tough number to cover by the bookies.

Why bet on the Tulsa Golden Hurricane

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane (15-8, 7-4) have proven to be a tough competitor in the American Conference this season, and are coming into this game on the back of a very impressive 77-63 win over Houston. Their overall records may seem pretty far apart at the moment, but it should be noted that Tulsa are just 2 games back of the Mustangs in the conference, so don’t just assume that they will roll over and play dead against conference leading SMU. The Golden Hurricane did lose their earlier match-up versus the Mustangs 81-69, but their 7-2 record in the last 9 games suggests that they are in much better form at the moment. Tulsa are averaging 73.3 PPG, and are giving up 68.0 PPG.

Why bet on the SMU Mustangs

The Mustangs (20-2, 9-2) were going through a spell that had seen them lose 2 of 3 before their game versus the South Florida Bulls over the weekend. That mini-slump had caused some people to start questioning just how good the Mustangs really are, but they answered those questions in the best way possible with a 92-58 win over the Bulls, which is the second largest road margin of victory in school history. It’ll be tough to deliver a repeat performance in this one, but you have to feel as though that win will have given the Mustangs some of their swagger back. They will also be confident knowing that they already have a win over Tulsa under their belts this season. The Mustangs are averaging 80.0 PPG, and are giving up 63.6 PPG.
