Northern Illinois vs. Tulsa Prediction: Spread

Tulsa was the underdog by 28.5 in their last matchup with NILL, which resulted in both a loss and a failed ATS cover. Their overall ATS record this season stands at 0-2. Looking at Tulsa’s three most recent road games, they have put together a record vs. the spread of 2-1.

In their recent game against TULSA, Northern Illinois was an 12.5-point underdog and couldn’t cover the srpead. They currently hold an ATS record of 0-1 for the season. At home, Northern Illinois has gone 2-1 against the spread (last three).

So far in this season, the Northern Illinois offense has been impressive in moving the chains on third down. I anticipate them keeping up this efficiency against Tulsa. My pick on the spread is Northern Illinois at -3.5.

Tulsa has an overall record of 1-2 as they prepare for this game. In their most recent game, they faced Oklahoma and were unable to secure a win, resulting in a 66-17 loss the Sooners. In the loss vs. Oklahoma, quarterback Cardell Williams finished with a QB rating of 103.68 while completing 11 of 17 passes for 196 yards. He also ended the game with two touchdowns.

Not only does our model have a projected total of 54 points in this matchup, but the eye test has me feeling this line of 53.5 is low. I like Tulsa and Northern Illinois to exceed 53.5 points.
