Hous­ton over TU­LANE by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Miami Florida Over -

If the cur­rent line of Hous­ton -9.5 looks vaguely fa­mil­iar in this af­ter­noon’s matchup in the Big Easy, it’s be­cause the Cougars have been dou­ble-digit fa­vorites in the last ten games in this se­ries. How­ever, it’s the Green Wave that has the most in­cen­tive to play well here: with­out a win today, Tu­lane’s bowl party is over – un­like a Hous­ton squad that ar­rives with a 6-win bowlel­i­gi­ble ticket al­ready in their back pocket. A trip to the ATS ar­chives doesn’t shed much light on this matchup. UH owns an aw­ful 0-5 SU and 1-3-1 ATS record of late in Last Road Games but the Gree­nies counter with an equally bad 4-9 SUATS mark in Last Home Games. The big­gest edge for head coach Ma­jor Applewhite’s Cougars is a solid 13-2 SU and 11-4 ATS mark with rest dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son. But Tu­lane head coach Wil­lie Fritz boasts a 13-71 ATS record in games fol­low­ing a win, in­clud­ing 3-0-1 ATS with con­fer­ence re­venge – and that’s what mat­ters most here today. Back the hun­grier host.
