Tulane is a 5-point favorite in the latest betting odds vs. Houston, which travels to New Orleans on Thursday to play the only college football game of the night.

The Tulane Green Wave have been impressive through three games, covering two and pushing against Auburn, depending on the line you got.

Houston is 1-2 with losses to Oklahoma and Washington State, but the biggest note on the Cougars’ young season has been their pace — 95th of 130 teams in seconds per play after ranking No. 1 last season. That’s why this over/under is in the 50’s (they haven’t had a total that low since November of 2017).

Stuckey: Has Market Caught Up to Tulane?

I love this Tulane team. In fact, I love them so much that I took a flier on them to win the conference at 35-1 before the season started.

All of the pieces are there for this experienced team to surprise the AAC.
