Three things to know before wagering on Tulane-Louisiana-Lafayette:
1. The Cure Bowl should fill in as a fun kickoff to bowl season, with a limited spread and a high aggregate (59). Louisiana-Lafayette outperformed preseason desires with its 7-6 record and a trek to the Sun Belt gathering title (it lost 30-19 to Appalachian State). Tulane is 6-6 and picked up bowl qualification just barely. In its last standard season diversion, the Green Wave scored a touchdown and a two-point transformation with under two minutes on the clock to beat Navy 29-28.
Tulane has been unremarkable against the spread this season, going 5-7 and neglecting to cover in its last three recreations. ULL, alternately, has been one of the country’s best at covering this season, going 9-4 ATS. The Ragin’ Cajuns are 3-1 ATS this season against spreads set at not exactly a touchdown on either side.

2. Tulane’s guard is better by and large (27.8 PPG, 5.61 YPP), yet its imperfections will render it powerless against ULL. The Green Wave have permitted 33 plays of 30 or more yards to contradicting offenses this season, more than everything except 22 different groups. That is an awful shortcoming to have against the Cajuns, who have ripped off increases of 30 or more yards multiple times this season, tied for ninth-most in the nation. Louisiana-Lafayette running back Elijah Mitchell has made 12 of the enormous plays and should keep on doing as such and help his group keep the amusement close, if not win it straight up.
3. In the event that the Cure Bowl comes last possible minute, the Ragin’ Cajuns have the edge in the kicking diversion. Oklahoma exchange Kyle Pfau was second in the Sun Belt in made FG rate this season, thumping through 14 of 17 endeavors (82.5%). Pfau had a 4-for-4 execution in the Sun Belt Championship in which he nailed a 45-yard kick. Tulane’s kicker, then again, missed an eventual proceed kick from just 32 yards out in the final quarter of a tie diversion against Navy. That disparity in reliability at a key position is even more motivation to wager ULL to haul out an ATS triumph here.
