The Temple Owls (15 - 6, 5 - 3 CONF) are on the road this week as they seek out the hometown Tulane Green Wave (4 - 16, 0 - 8 CONF). Tulane will be hosting this game at the Devlin Fieldhouse in New Orleans, LA. Temple will be coming into this game having lost three of their last four matchups. Tulane has completely fallen off the map over the past two months with Tulane losing ten straight games. Temple will be favored in this game.

The Temple Owls are taking the court with a team that is averaging 75 PPG on 44% shooting from the floor. Temple is led by the play of Shizz Alston (18 PPG, 5 APG) and he'll be our player to highlight in this matchup. If Alston hits his shots early, Temple can put Tulane to bed. Temple is giving up just 71 PPG to opposing teams on defense this season. The Tulane Green Wave is led by the play of Caleb Daniels (15 PPG, 5 RPG, 3 APG) and he'll have to be masterful to get a win in this game. Tulane is scoring only 67 PPG as a team while shooting 42% from the floor. Tulane is also struggling defensively as the Green Wave defense is giving up 75 PPG to opposing teams so far this season. Tulane could be in for a long night if they don't fight early.

The offense from Temple is going to dominate this game and that will definitely make it easier for the Owls in the game here as the Green Wave will struggle to keep pace with the amont of offensive power the Owls are bringing to the court. What else will help the Owls out is the fact the team is only giving up only a few more points than what the Green Wave are scoring on the season. We like Temple to defeat Tulane in this game. Final Score Prediction, Temple Owls win and cover ATS 77 - 64.
