East Carolina at Tulsa
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ESPNN
CRIS Opener: Tulsa -7 O/U 72.5
CRIS Current: Tulsa -9.5 O/U 75.5
This line is getting bet and has now reached Tulsa -9.5/-10 or it would have been on my card. I bet the Golden Hurricanes at -7 and there is still a little value on them at this price. I have made money with Tulsa this year, including last week as a seven-point dog at Memphis; a game they dominated and won 59-30. Tulsa’s only losses this year came at Ohio State and at Houston, a game that was tied with two minutes remaining. Over the past two weeks they have really gotten it going on offense, combining for 109 points and 1,164 total yards of offense. Quarterback Dane Evans has been sharp, with no picks in either game and the running game led by Joe Flanders has gained over 600 yards on the ground. Tulsa should keep the offense rolling against a poor East Carolina defense this week.
ECU is coming off a 41-3 win over UConn which snapped their five-game losing skid. Prior to the good showing on defense against UConn, the Pirates had allowed an average of 38 points per game during their skid. However, UConn is nowhere near the class of offense that they will face this week on the road at Tulsa. UConn has scored 27 points or less in all of its games this year while Tulsa averages 39.9 points per game on the year. The fast paced Tulsa offense leads the nation in plays per game at 89 and I like to back fast paced teams when they get rolling. Agree 100% with the line move as this one projects to be a blowout.
