Rating:

The Bearcats aren’t good offensively and have been worse on the road. They have also been careless with the ball on the road, averaging 16.8 turnovers per game, which isn’t good when they are facing a defense that plays well at home and is averaging six steals per game in their last three games. The Golden Hurricane have also had their offensive issues, but they have played better at home. Even though the Bearcats have played well defensively in recent games, they aren’t very good on the road and gave up 90 points the last time they were away from home. They gave up 70 points at home to the Golden Hurricane in their last meeting and will have a hard time slowing them down on the road, making Tulsa the best bet here.

Prediction: Tulsa Golden Hurricane

Rating:

The Bearcats are averaging 67.7 points per game and 65.6 points per game on the road. They are facing a defense that is giving up 61.5 points per game at home and will fall short of their average in this game. The Golden Hurricane are averaging 66.2 points per game and 68.1 points per game at home. They like to play at a slow pace, with the team averaging 68.5 possessions per game. Even though they are facing a defense that is giving up 73.1 points per game on the road, they won’t score enough points to push the score over the total.
