I’m backing the Golden Eagles here. Last time the Golden Eagles were in a coin flip scenario on the road, they fell short against the South Alabama Jaguars but I don’t expect that to happen here. Old Dominion’s coming back off of a lengthy road trip over the last week plus and I don’t think they’ll have it here. Southern Miss has one hand on the Sun Belt title and I think they close out the deal with a win and cover here.
