The Georgia Southern Eagles have been the better team and are more profitable ATS on the season where they have a 9-5-1 record. However, this is a bit of a rivalry game and meetings have come down to the wire in the past. Home court can often be a deciding factor in these contests and South Alabama wins at home by an average of 8.8 points and shoots 48.6 percent from the field. I'll lay the bucket with the Jags at home.
