The over is 4-1 in Warhawks last 5 games overall.

The Southern Miss Golden Eagles aren’t playing good ball entering this contest, but they are the better team overall, and they still need a victory to become bowl eligible. While it’s senior night for the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks, they’re a poor team that’s 108th in total offense, 99th in scoring offense, 107th in total defense and 124th in scoring defense. If Southern Miss cant win this game to clinch its first bowl trip since 2019, something is wrong. I’ll lay the small number.
