Normally a team that’s run heavy facing a team playing LIVE its first game of the season would be a sure bet for the under. I’m not positive that’s the case here. Houston has weapons and Tulane can move the rock. If anything the over might be the more interesting play. As for the spread Houston is -6.5. The Cougars might end up winning this game however you’re not going to find me laying points with a team that not only hasn’t played but faced more disruptions than just about any other team this year.Tulane: We know the Green Wave love to run the ball as they do so more than 45 times a game. Few teams are better at it than them too with the offense averaging 6.44 yards per rush. That ranks fourth nationally. Don’t expect a lot of balance from this offense but that’s not what it’s designed to do. The question is whether Tulane can get 60 minutes of good football against an opponent that on paper is superior. The collapse against Navy was truly stunning and Willie Fritz is too good of a coach to allow something like that to happen again.
Houston: What does the offense look like? Quarterback Clayton Tune is back and cemented as the starter. He certainly has his pick of weapons around him. Receiver Marquez Stevenson can be lightning in a bottle. If this thing gets into a shootout Houston certainly has the tools to keep up on the scoreboard. Meanwhile the Cougars had one of the worst defenses in the country in 2019 surrendering 34 points per game. Houston was particularly bad against the run allowing more than five yards per carry. That’s going to have to improve if it’s going to get off the field against Tulane. This team is a whole bunch of unknowns but on paper this seems like a bad matchup for the Houston defense. That may not matter if the Cougars are able to score at will.
Cougar fans have been waiting for this day for quite some time. Since the start of the season the Cougars have had four postponements but they are finally set to play their first home game of the season against the Tulane Green Wave. As this is UH’s first game of the season it’s hard to make any predictions. Tulane has a decent team but we have yet to see what the Cougars are going to offer to this season. Tonights game will air on ESPN. Keep reading for details on how you can watch Tulane vs University of Houston live stream online without cable.

On the surface (meaning, by the looks of the line movement), you wouldn’t necessarily think that this game had drawn sharps to the under. After all the earliest opener for this game set the total at 56 and it’s currently up at 60 at most books. If anything you’d probably conclude that sharps were on the over.
But from our tools (using Sports Insights Bet Signals as the tell-tale sign of sharp action) that upward movement was more a result of overall action whereas sharps stronger takes came once the line had already reached its higher level.
Since the line reached the upper 50s and especially so in the lower 60s, 10 SI Bet Signals have been triggered on the under (to just three on the over at lesser numbers) confirming the pro play.
The Southern Miss Golden Eagles had a rough go of it in January when they matched up with the Tulane Green Wave and had to endure more of the same on Saturday. The Golden Eagles were dealt a punishing 66-24 loss at the hands of Tulane. Southern Miss was down 52-24 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.
RB Cameron Carroll went supernova for the Green Waves as he rushed for three TDs and 163 yards on 15 carries in addition to snatching one receiving TD. One of the most memorable plays of the game was Carroll’s 52-yard touchdown rush in the third quarter. The Tulane defense stepped up as well to lay out QB Jack Abraham five times.Tulane defense was a presence as well, as it collected one interception and three fumbles. That interception came courtesy of DB Kevaris Hall with 7:53 remaining in the first quarter.
Southern Miss’ defeat came about despite a quality game from WR Jason Brownlee, who caught three passes for one TD and 110 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Brownlee’s 88-yard TD reception in the first quarter.Southern Miss still hasn’t won a matchup and fell to 0-3. Tulane win brought them up to 2-1.
