Written by on October 18, 2019

Part of the fun of betting on college football is going through the huge weekly schedule and finding a few diamonds in the rough that are worth wagering on. Many bettors stick with the Power 5 conferences, mostly because they are wagering on teams they know and see on TV every single week. There is a level of familiarity there, but there is also enough data out there to make informed betting decisions on every single game. If you are one of those people who likes to watch the games that you are wagering on, then we have a good one for you this Saturday night.

Outside of UCF, the AAC may not get a lot of attention, but it is generally entertaining to watch, especially of you like offensive-minded football. Two of the best teams in the conference will square off this weekend, with the Tulane Green Wave heading to Memphis to take on the Tigers. You can catch this one on ESPN2, so you can watch to see how your bets are doing. Memphis is in as a 3 ½ point home favorite, with the point total for this one set at 59 ½.

Why bet on the Tulane Green Wave?

Tulane are coming into this game on a bit of a hot streak, having won 4 in a row to take their season record to 5-1. They are also now sitting at 2-0 in conference play, which has them tied with the SMU Mustangs for the lead in the AAC West Division. It goes without saying that this is a game they need to win if they are to keep pace with the Mustangs, but they certainly look equipped to do so, as their offense has been on fire during their 4-game winning streak.

They have racked up a total of 187 points during that 4-game run, covering the spread in all 4 games. The Green Wave have now won 7 of their last 8 and are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games.

Why bet on the Memphis Tigers?

The Memphis Tigers hopes of getting into the AAC Championship Game took a serious blow last weekend. Heading into Week 7 with a perfect 5-0 record, the Tigers went on the road to face Temple as a 4-point favorite, but they ended up coming up short in a 30-28 loss to the Owls.

Tulane vs Memphis is going to be a close one.

That dropped them to 1-1 in conference play and put them right behind the 8-ball, with 2 teams now above them with perfect conference records. Tulane are one of those teams, so Memphis can help their cause by getting a win this weekend. They have won 5 straight games at home, but perhaps better yet, they have won 6 in a row at home to Tulane. They are 10-5 ATS in their last 15 games overall.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Tulane vs Memphis

Tulane would appear to be a little up against it given their inability to get the job done in Memphis over the years. I think we are about to see a minor upset here, though, as I like the Green Wave to go in and win as the underdog. I also like the OVER.

Score: Tulane Green Wave 39 – Memphis Tigers 33
