McNeese Cowboys vs New Orleans Privateers prediction

The McNeese Cowboys are obviously the better team and more than capable of blowing the doors off here. McNeese smoked New Orleans back in January by a score of 102-65, so it wouldn't be surprising to see a similar effort. However, it's a tournament game and if New Orleans can't get up for this one, something is wrong. Also, McNeese is winning but has failed to cover 3 of its last 4 games. These lines are super inflated. The New Orleans Privateers have covered their last 2 games, and you can argue they'll have the best player on the floor in Jordan Johnson. Give me the boatload of points.
