Matchup History

Southern Miss won the lone meeting between these two teams back on January 28th, 2023 by a final score of 67-58.


Southern Miss is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a loss and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games against a team with a losing home record while the over is 12-5 in their last 17 games following a loss. Texas State is 1-9 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall.


I’m backing Southern Miss here. The line feels a bit funky that it’s as light as it is, but maybe it’s because the Golden Eagles have dropped their last pair of road games. Either way, the Golden Eagles are the far better team here with something to play for, while the same can’t necessarily be said for Texas State who are just playing for tournament positioning and maybe to play spoiler. I don’t see that happening here as Southern Miss is just the better team at almost everything in this matchup. Give me Southern Miss here.
