The Jaguars are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a road favorite. The Trojans are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games following a ATS win, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Jaguars last 5 overall. The under is 6-2 in Trojans last 8 home games. The underdog is 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings. The road team is 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings.
The South Alabama Jaguars aren't winning games at the moment, but they have had some recent success on the road and have won the last two meetings against Troy pretty comfortably. The Troy Trojans play well at home, but they're in brutal form right now, which includes losing their last five games by an average of 9.4 points while shooting 37.3 percent from the field. I love my home dogs, but backing Troy in its current form isn't an option right now.
