SMU over Tulsa by 15

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

The Ponies are get­ting plenty of new­found re­spect as they have now been in­stalled as dou­ble-digit fa­vorites for the third time this year af­ter go­ing the prior three sea­sons with­out once wear­ing that la­bel. It’s been war­ranted in SUATS wins over both North Texas and UConn ear­lier this sea­son ( 5-1 ATS last six as dou­ble-digit chalk dat­ing back to 2012) and should be tonight as the bot­tom-feed­ing Golden Hur­ri­cane (2-6, 1-3) ar­rive with a stop-unit that is al­low­ing over 48 PPG on the high­way and ranks next to last (548 DYPG) in the FBS in to­tal de­fense. That’s a 120 YPG dropoff from last sea­son and the main rea­son why the Hur­ri­cane won’t come close to du­pli­cat­ing last year’s 10-win ef­fort. It’s also the rea­son why we have no prob­lem sad­dling up with Mus­tangs, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing they ar­rive with 52 YPG the su­pe­rior of­fense as well as 110 YPG the stingier de­fense. No Pony Ex­press needed tonight in Dal­las as SMU im­proves to 4-1 ATS in se­ries play and, more im­por­tantly, nabs that all-im­por­tant sixth win as they’re headed for the al­leys for the first time in five years. Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 28
