Southern Miss is listed as a 1.5-point home favorite with the total for this game listed at 139.5 points.

Matchup History

South Alabama’s 85-54 win back on February 16th, 2023, made it four wins in the last five head-to-head meetings between these two teams.


South Alabama is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record. Southern Miss is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 neutral site games.


I’m going to take a shot here on the Jaguars. Not a game I’m rushing to bet, but the Jaguars have had a chance to shake off the rust, and while Southern Miss has been the team to beat in the Sun Belt, they split the regular season series with the Jaguars and Southern Miss just really couldn’t get anything going away from home. I’ll lean towards South Alabama here.
