Oregon was one game from going to the Final Four just a year ago and lost badly to Oklahoma.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Our 500-star NCAA Basketball Tournament Point Spread Predictions are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue into the 2017 NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April.

The (6-24) and Number-Ten Seed Tulane Green Wave of the American Athletic Conference will be in the largest city of the “CONSTITUTION STATE” for their first round American Athletic Conference Tournament matchup.

Tip-off is 6:00 PM EST on the ESPNN Television Network. The game is on Thursday. March 9, 2017. The teams will play at the XL Center in chilly Hartford, Connecticut.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Tulane Green Wave will not have the large contingent in Hartford on Thursday.

However, the Tulane “HOOPS” program is heading in the right direction but must upgrade facilities.

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane has a long tradition of playing competitive basketball. However, the team has had their struggles down the stretch of the 2017 season.

The Opening Betting Line has the Tulane as a Four-Point, And A Half-Points Underdog Against The Point Spread on a neutral court. The Betting Odds Total is 149-Points for Thursday’s contest.

The Tulane Green Wave won just four games in Conference action this season and finished next to last in the standings.

Tulane beat Tulsa in New Orleans less than a week ago in the regular season finale. Former longtime NBA legend Mike Dunleavy Sr is now running the show with the Tulane basketball program.

The old South Carolina University and NBA star have eighteen years of coaching experience.

However, it’s his first at the collegiate level. The Tulane program is in good hands, and Dunleavy will turn the program around sooner than later. The Green Wave are 1-3 vs. The number of their last four contests.

Junior Guard Cameron Reynolds is the team’s leading scorer and lights up the gym against Tulsa in their final game with seven three-pointers and 31-points.

The key to a Tulane victory is to dictate the pace of the basketball game and make open shots.

Bovada.Lv, list the Tulane Green Wave at +12,500 to win the 2017 American Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament title.

 

The 2017 Tulsa Golden Hurricane seemed to be getting a bye in the AAC Tournament, but they went 2-8 straight up to end the regular season.

Tulsa will now face a confident Tulane team which beat them last Sunday. March 5th. Head Coach Frank Haith must instill some confidence in his team; they look lethargic and lazy.

The Golden Hurricane were 6-2 n Conference play about a month ago. What is going wrong?

NCAA Basketball enthusiast in the “SOONER STATE” believes Haith is over coaching the team.

The starting five are solid, but the bench players have been less than average in production.

Rutgers University transfer Junior Etou Bovada is the team’s leading scorer with just 13 points per game and is the only player averaging double figures.

The key to a Tulsa victory is to play tight defense and control the post.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2017 Tulsa Golden Hurricane at +5,000 to win the American Athletic Conference Tournament.
