Tulsa vs. Bowling Green, 08/29/2013 19:00
Point Spread: +4/-115 Tulsa
The Tulsa offense will not be intimidated by the Falcons defensive reputation. The Golden Hurricane will have seven starters returning to an offense that scored an average of 34.7 points per game last season. They will have their star quarterback, Cody Green under center again this season, as well as their top receivers and a running back duo that rushed for over 2,000+ yards.
The Falcons offense was a bit underwhelming last year, and with Tulsa having just 3 defensive starters making their return, it presents a favorable matchup for the Golden Hurricanes. Two key positions on offense, the running back and starting tackle, will see new faces this year. That is going to be a difficult adjustment for the Falcons.
I think the Falcon's are going to struggle to complete passes down field in this game. That plays right into Tulsa's favor as they are 7-0 ATS the last three seasons when the defense holds opponents to 150 to 200 net passing yards. The hype surrounding Bowling Green may have been too much and I look for Tulsa to keep this game close.
