Southern Miss vs. South Alabama Prediction

I’m on South Alabama here. They’re the far stronger offensive unit in this matchup and the defense for the Jaguars has been a lot better as well. I think this one could get interesting and I trust South Alabama to hit their free throws and get enough stops to get the win and cover in this one. Give me South Alabama.
