Teams: Old Dominion (6–6) versus Tulsa (6–6)

Line: Tulsa -9.5

Summary

Both the Old Dominion Monarchs and the Tulsa Golden Hurricane rattled off late-season runs to finish strong, which sets us up for a close battle here.

Neither team is necessarily great at forcing turnovers, which could lead us to a back-and-forth game. Tulsa has more on both sides of the ball to pull off the win, but don't expect a blowout. But do expect: Plenty of punting.

Our Pick

Say it with me: Too! Many! Points! 9.5 is just too much to lay for Tulsa here. The game could likely come down to who wins the turnover battle, but for spread purposes, feel confident in ODU keeping it close.

The Score: Tulsa wins, 14-10

The Actual Score: Tulsa 30, Old Dominion 17
