Tulane Vs. Rutgers Odds: Scarlet Kings Favored Big Over Green Wave

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights open their 2012 season with a wide point spread in the Superdome on Saturday, Sept. 1, when they meet the Tulane Green Wave.

Oddsmakers had the point spread opening with Rutgers favored by 19, and the line has risen to 20.5 since then. Current odds can be found here.

Hurricane Isaac, which has been classified again as a tropical storm, will not postpone the contest from its 8 p.m. ET start, which will air on CBS Sports Network.

Rutgers is coming off of a 9-4, 4-3 in the Big East conference, 2011 campaign that was capped off with a victory in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl over Iowa State, 27-13.

On the other side, The Green Wave endured a forgettable 2011 season in Conference USA, finishing 2-11 overall and 1-7 in conference play. Their two wins of the year came in September over Southeastern Louisiana and the University of Alabama at Birmingham, respectively.
