Tulane vs SMU 10/21/21 Betting Prediction
Tulane lost 5 of their 6 games this season mainly because their defense is really bad. The Green Wave are allowing 40.2 points per game which is the 4th worst record in the whole country. The offense is respectable, averaging 33.2 points per game but this is really not enough when you have such a defense.
The SMU Mustangs are 6-0 and are currently ranked 21st in the country. They haven’t faced any elite opposition so far and by the looks of it, they won’t face such this week as well. SMU’s offense is really good, averaging 40.7 points per game and the defense is decent, allowing 22.2 points per game, even though it might be leaky at times. They have good playmakers on defense but as a whole, they tend to be a bit situational and lose focus often.
This will be a high-scoring game and when you have high-scoring games is pretty easy for one team to make a blowout. That’s what I expect to happen here and I’m going to side with the ranked side who is also playing at home and rarely makes any mistakes on offense.
