Tulane vs. Army,
10/05/2019 12:00 EDT,
Score: 42 - 33
Point Spread: +2½/-105 Army
The set-up: Obviously the outright upset isn’t out of the question, but in a contest which I envision being decided by whichever of these talented teams has its hands on the ball last. Both Tulane and Army are 3-1. Tulane though I think is set up for a letdown here after its emotional come from behind win at home over Houston last weekend (was down 28-7 in the second half and it was decide by a 53 yard TD strike from QB Justin McMillan to WR Jalen McCleskey as time wound off the clock in regulation.) Can anyone say “letdown spot?” Army enters off back-to-back wins, but won’t be taking anything for granted here after demolishing the Morgan State Bears last weekend, behind a career-best day from RB Connor Slomka.
The pick: Tulane’s offense is going to be put to the test here vs. Army’s 15th ranked overall defense which concedes 16.3 PPG. Army is a sharp 4-0-1 ATS in its last five following a bye week, while Tulane is a poor 3-8 ATS in its last 11 vs. teams with a winning home record. For all the reasons listed above, I’m on the Golden Knights.
8* pick on Army.
