College Football Betting Preview: Tulane Green Wave at Oklahoma Sooners

Tulane at Oklahoma
Saturday, 3 pm PT
CRIS Opener: Oklahoma -34 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -35.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Tulane

I cashed a winning free play here in the blog last week on the Tulane Green Wave in their spread covering loss as double-digit underdogs against Navy. I think they are worth another endorsement as they head to Norman to face the Oklahoma Sooners. Tulane has opened the season 1-1 SU but more importantly 2-0 ATS. This is a squad that has taken major strides under the watch of second-year head coach Willie Fritz. The triple option offense has been firmly established and the level of execution, particularly along the offensive line, has gotten better as the Green Wave have averaged 243 ypg on the ground at a 5 ypc. They’ve also found a better quarterback this season with Jonathan Banks who with a 65% completion rate, 3 TDs and no INTs has shown the ability to throw the ball. Unfortunately, Banks was knocked out of the Navy game due to injury but Johnathan Brantley filled in admirably. The potential loss of Banks, while not ideal, shouldn’t have much of an impact in the short term.

Oklahoma obviously isn’t in the best of spots after last week’s monster road win at Ohio State. The Sooners were able to put the clamps on J.T. Barrett and OSU’s struggling offense while Baker Mayfield connected on 27-of-35 passing for 386 yards and 3 TD passes. Everyone by now is well aware of celebration that took place following the win and with their conference opener on deck, it’s very possible we don’t see a fully focused favorite on Saturday. And focused they’ll need to be in order to cover such a large pointspread. I’m sure they spent some time during the summer preparing for the option but a vast majority of the preseason was geared specifically for the Buckeyes and other Big XII foes. Tulane is feisty and proving to no longer be a pushover. They’re just the sort of squad that can quietly slip into Norman, stick around, and leave with an easy pointspread cover.
