Houston Cougars vs. Tulsa Golden Hurricane Black Friday Betting

Houston Cougars vs. Tulsa Golden Hurricane OddsWe’ve said from Week One that we felt the Cougars, with the return of Case Keenum, could run the table.

Of course, most of that was due to a Charmin-soft schedule as we noted in Houston’s Team Theme from our BSN Sports Handicapper’s articles that the Cougars would face only one FBS foe this season that ended 2010 with a winning record.

Well, that foe is here now. In fact, we have Tulsa listed as one of the teams to keep an eye on in our 2011 Top 10 ATS Teams preview.

And the Golden Hurricane haven’t disappointed with a 7-4 ATS log, including fi ve straight covers.

Yes, the Cougars have chewed up losing teams (12-2 ATS last 14) but they have struggled mightily versus .500 or greater foes (3-11-1 ATS last 15, including 1-7 ATS when Houston is off back-to-back wins).

And that’s not even the most alarming stat! As well as being an ‘As the Noose Tightens’ BSN Sports fade, and a ‘Kick in the Assets’ (Issue #10) prime ‘play against’, the Coogs are a jaw-dropping 1-18 SU in their last 19 road games in which they allow more than 30 points.

And as luck would have it (and we’re not talking Andrew), the Hurricane has scored more than 30 points in each of its last 12 home games.

Now that ties in nicely! Almost as much as Tulsa’s 6-1 ATS log in LHG’s to Houston’s winless 0-7 ATS mark in LRG’s over that same span.

Now we don’t want to completely dismiss a team we have built up all betting season long so we must point out that the Cougars do own a healthy 10-2 ATS mark with conference revenge.

However, this wouldn’t be a 5* BEST BET if we couldn’t negate that number and we think a Golden 6-1 ATS mark as conference home favorites/home dogs of 4 or less points – along with an 11-3 ATS record versus .666 or greater league opposition – does more than enough.

For the Conference USA West cheese, we’re going to smile with Tulsa as they improve to 4-2 SU and 5-1 ATS lifetime in this series. And then there was ‘one’ (and possibly ‘none’ if you talk to Arkansas fans)!

Sportsbooks currently have the Cougars listed as 3-point favorites versus the Golden Hurricane, while the game's total is sitting at 74½.
