Basketball lines show that Tulane was 17-13 overall and 9-7 in C-USA last season.
College basketball lines show that coach Dave Dickerson has made it through tough times with Hurricane Katrina, the loss of a lot of talent and a lack of depth. College basketball lines experts see that Tulane loses Chris Moore and two other solid players but another good year is possible. "I am going into my third year at Tulane and this has been the best offseason with the least amount of distractions," Dickerson said. "We are very excited about the upcoming season because of the way we finished last year, winning nine of our last 12 games, and capturing a fourth-place finish, which was very good for us. We earned a first-round bye in the conference tournament and that was exciting for our team."
College basketball lines experts see that Dickerson will get help from eight sophomores and freshmen. Basketball lines experts also see that Tulane has one of C-USA's best seniors in 6-7, 235-pound post David Gomez. He averaged 13.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game as college basketball lines experts remember. Sophomore point guard Kevin Sims should also player better this season according to those that bet college basketball lines. Tulane needs senior forwards Donnie Stith and Matt Wheaton and junior forwards Robinson Louisme and Daniel Puckett to produce to make a mark versus college basketball lines.
Newcomers for the Green Wave that may help according to basketball lines experts are redshirt freshman Johnny Mayhane and transfer Eric Vianney.
College basketball lines experts know that at 6-5, Mayhane will help out on the glass. Vianney is a transfer from Illinois State and could be a player off the bench according to basketball lines experts.
There is no doubt according to college basketball lines experts that the season revolves around Gomez. If Gomez has a great year then Tulane can make noise against the college basketball lines. With a year of experience for Sims, the team should be able to cut back on their turnovers and have more success against college basketball lines.
College basketball lines experts see a starting lineup of Kevin Sims and Johnny Mayhane at the guards, Daniel Puckett and Donnie Stith at the forwards and David Gomez in the middle.
