The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns (10-15, 5-9 CONF) and the South Alabama Jaguars (14-11, 7-7 CONF) will meet on Thursday, February 13th for a Sun Belt Conference matchup at the Mitchell Center in Mobile, AL. The game will be played at 8:00 PM eastern time. 

Louisiana-Lafayette is coming off an 86-79 home loss to Georgia Southern in their last game. Despite the disappointing season, Louisiana-Lafayette is 3-2 in their last five overall. South Alabama is coming off a 70-66 road win over Troy in their last game. That win makes it back-to-back victories for South Alabama, who is currently right at .500 in Sun Belt play this season.

Louisiana-Lafayette has not impressed me by any stretch of the imagination, but they have not been abysmal. Nine points is a lot to lay with South Alabama, and I just do not think they can win by that many points. I will take Louisiana-Lafayette to cover, I think South Alabama will still win outright.
