Tulane @ SMU
Current Records: Tulane 10-5; SMU 6-10
What to Know
The Tulane Green Wave are 2-10 against the SMU Mustangs since January of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Wednesday. Tulane and SMU will face off in an American Athletic battle at 8 p.m. ET at Moody Coliseum. The Green Wave should still be riding high after a win, while the Mustangs will be looking to right the ship.
Tulane strolled past the Temple Owls with points to spare this past Saturday, taking the matchup 87-76. Tulane's guard Jaylen Forbes did his thing and had 22 points in addition to six rebounds.
Meanwhile, SMU took a serious blow against the UCF Knights on Sunday, falling 85-53.
Tulane is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4.5-point margin of victory. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 5-10), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread three games in a row.
SMU's defeat took them down to 6-10 while Tulane's victory pulled them up to 10-5. A win for the Mustangs would reverse both their bad luck and Tulane's good luck. We'll see if SMU manages to pull off that tough task or if the Green Wave keep their momentum going instead.
