On paper, on a field or on cement, Tulsa should win and cover this game, but a few things concern me here. First UTEP played a tough schedule the first 6 games (throw out Mew Mex ST). Next, the line should be higher than 16.5. Price has a pretty good ats road record in revenge games. Tulsa has a tendency to let their foot off the pedal when playing a team coming off bb su losses. I might wait till the line hits 17 then take a shot on the Miners. Until then it's wait and see.  I'm figuring a 38 - 21 tulsa win but I still might take a shot on the Miners. GL vegas

UTEP ranks 70th in the nation in points allowed, averaging 27/game. Their opponents combined average ppg so far is 26.5...Tulsa is 12th in the nation in scoring offense at 42ppg, granted that's against some piss poor competition, but that's exactly the kind of competition they are playing this week! 

Sure Tulsa's D allows 28ppg, but I don't think UTEP is a team that is going to take advantage of that. 

Tulsa is 14-5 ATS the last 3 years coming off of a win against a conference opponent. They've been favored twice this year by big numbers, 22 and 13.5, and they covered both.

I'll take Tulsa laying the 16 1/2 at home. Better grab it before it gets bet up to 17.

I think over 57 is the play here. Tulsa could very well go over that number themselves.

OK I'm convinced (somewhat) I'll give Tulsa 4 points more and UTEP 4 points less and come up with.

Tulsa - 42                                                       UTEP - 17

Golden Hurricane -17                            over 57.5

UTEP covers this one my foot goes through the tv. I don't trust this outfit.

Tulsa (reluctantly) - Over (maybe)

UTEP may have laid a stink bomb last week (I lost $ betting on them against SMU), but they did cover on the road against a quality team in Wisconsin as well as an Ole Miss team that's not all that bad (I'm basing that on what I saw when they played in Bama).

Tulsa made me some loot last week with covering and the over vs. Marshall, but 17 is an awful lot of points. 

Kind of with the Colonel over there, I want to reluctantly take Tulsa but think the spread might be a bit too high. Waiting until tonight to figure out my final lean.

Also think the Under might be the play here....if you bet the over, you're hoping Tulsa puts up most of the  points, and UTEP can't score. 

Could be a 42-10 final, something of that sort.

Tulsa always explosive. This is an opportunity for them to extend CUSA lead in the west and eventually play for that CUSA title and get the bigger bowl dollahs. UTEP a punching bag.  TULSA and OV for the large!!!!
