1 unit on Tulane +2.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91)  RESULT: win

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 64 -109 (risk 1 to return 1.92)  RESULT: loss

Tulane enjoyed a remarkable season with an 11-2 straight-up and ATS record after finishing 2-10 last year and the Green Wave have plenty of incentive in the Cotton Bowl as they try to beat a Power-5 school and prove their season wasn't a fluke. Tulane has plenty of talent on offense as QB Michael Pratt has thrown for 2,775 yards and 25 touchdowns with only five interceptions. Pratt also ran for 395 yards and 10 TDs. Tyjae Spears rushed for 1,376 yards on 6.5 per carry with 15 TDs plus two more receiving. Shae Wyatt has 35 receptions for 692 yards and seven TDs. USC had to settle for a lesser bowl after missing out on the College Football Playoff and Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams is hampered by a hamstring injury, but expects to play. Unfortunately, he'll be missing two of his starting offensive linemen as Andrew Vorhees opted out and center Brett Neilon is injured. Tulane has wins against Kansas State, Cincinnati and Central Florida and the defense is #32 in total yards allowed and #18 in pass defense. The Green Wave has covered 15 of its past 18 games, including 8-1 ATS versus teams with winning records. The Trojans are 0-5 ATS their past five bowl games and 1-11 ATS their past 12 neutral-site games. Tulane has allowed 20.5 points per game compared to 27.9 for USC and the Green Wake has gone UNDER four of their past five non-conference games. Take Tulane and the UNDER.
