Free NCAAB Pick:
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane are enjoying one of their best seasons in program history as they sit on top of the AAC with a 12-4 record, and they are playing really good basketball as of recent as they have won 5 of their last 6 games. The Golden Hurricane are one of the best defensive teams in the country as they are holding their opponents to an average of 63.4 PPG, and they have been even better in conference play (59.5 PPG). Tulsa was able to beat UCF by 11 points with their leading scorer only contributing 9 points in their recent game, but that is just a testament to their experienced roster as they only play 1 freshman. Temple has really struggled on the defensive side of the court in AAC play as they rank 11th in points allowed, and I expect one of the best forwards in the conference to do some damage as Martins Igbanu is averaging 16.3 PPG and 6.1 RPG. Final Score Prediction, Tulsa Golden Hurricane win and cover ATS 66-60.
