We have an American Athletic Association matchup on Saturday when the Tulsa Golden Hurricane travel to Dallas for a contest with the SMU Mustangs. Tulsa has started out conference play with a 1-2 record and the Mustangs are 2-1 this season in conference play.

Tulsa Drops Home Game to Cincinnati

Tulsa took one on the chin at home on Thursday night, losing to the Cincinnati Bearcats in overtime by a score of 70-65. Senior guard DaQuan Jeffries led Tulsa with 14 points with four rebounds and sophomore forward Jeriah Horne and sophomore guard Elijah Joiner both came off the bench to score eleven points and combined for eleven rebounds. Tulsa shot 41 percent from the field, an impressive 60 percent on 14-23 shooting from downtown and 61 percent from the charity stripe in their overtime loss to the Bearcats.

The Golden Hurricane aren’t reporting any injuries for Saturday night’s contest with SMU.

The Golden Hurricane are shooting 45 percent from the floor, 35 percent from long range and 69 percent from the charity stripe. Tulsa averages a total of 36 rebounds, 12 assists and 13 turnovers per game this season

SMU Falls on the Road to UConn

SMU is off to a 2-1 start to conference play and suffered their first defeat, on the road this past Thursday night against UConn. Junior guard Jimmy Whitt Jr led SMU with 20 points with ten boards and senior guard Jahmal McMurray scored 15 points with four boards to lead the Mustangs. SMU shot poorly in their loss to UConn, shooting 34 percent from the field, just 3-23 from long distance and a superb 15-16 from the charity stripe on Thursday night.

SMU doesn’t have anyone listed on their injury report for Saturday’s game with Tulsa.

The Mustangs score an average of 75 points and allow an average of 67 points per game. SMU is shooting 45 percent from the floor, 34 percent from the three-point line and 71 percent from the charity stripe. The Mustangs are averaging 37 rebounds, 15 assists and 11 turnovers per game this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I like SMU Saturday night and I don’t mind laying the wood for a team that has an assist to turnover ratio that SMU boasts this season. Tulsa is 2-2 away from Oklahoma and I believe they will suffer a decisive defeat at the hands of SMU. The clincher for me is Tulsa’s negative assist to turnover ratio, and I suspect Tulsa will commit more than theu season average of 15 turnovers against SMU. I’m laying the points and going with SMU.

Prediction: SMU -7 Points

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I’m not touching this total for all the money in the world. I believe SMU will win this game, but I don’t trust either side much because we have no idea which teams will show up. Will it be the sides that combine for 156 points or the sides allowing a combined 135 points? I dunno, but my guess is the under because of the way Tulsa fails to hang onto the ball and how awful SMU shoots at times from deep. If I had to make a play, I will go under in this one.

Prediction: Under 138 Points
