North Alabama is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games. The over is 4-1 in North Alabama’s last 5 neutral site games. Southern Utah is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in Southern Utah’s last 5 games.
North Alabama comes into this game on a three game losing streak and has not played very well in those three games. Southern Utah made it to the WAC Final, but could not slow down Grand Canyon in the loss. Southern Utah is scoring 82.5 points per game and they should have a field day against a North Alabama team that has allowed 92 points in two of their last four games. Even with all of this, this total is too high. All we need is one lull in the action for this to go under, and that is what I am taking here.
