The New Orleans Privateers are a below average team at both ends of the floor and struggle most to find consistent offense. The Central Arkansas Bears are playing their best ball of the season right now, have the ability to get stops defensively and have had solid success against the number as well. While the records are similar, Central Arkansas is easily the better team here and clearly oddsmakers agree. I'll lay the chalk with the home team.
