South Alabama is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the over is 8-2 in their last 10 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400. Robert Morris is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games while the over is 7-2 in their last 9 Sunday games.
I get the case to be made for the Jaguars here with a flawless 5-0 ATS record, but the thing is that the majority of those came in the underdog role and it doesn’t make me want to lay points with the Jaguars in the favorite role. I think this is going to be a tight game when all is said and done, so give me the Colonials and the points here.
