Furman Paladins vs Samford Bulldogs prediction

The Furman Paladins will have their chances here as they beat Samford once this season and the one loss was decided by two points. Furman has the offense to compete with Samford. With that said, Furman is shaky at best defensively and I doubt things will improve after playing yesterday. The Samford Bulldogs have been the cream of the crop in the Southern, and they're far and away more balanced. Samford has the offense to beat anybody in the country, and the defense is more trustworthy. The line is reasonable. I'll lay the bucket with Samford.
