Bethune-Cookman Wildcats vs Southern Jaguars prediction

The Southern Jaguars have been the better team this season, and they're sharper offensively. I guess I can understand why Southern is the slight favorite. With that said, the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats beat Southern twice this season, which includes a win less than two weeks ago. Bethune-Cookman has won the last three games against Southern overall. The Southern Jaguars also have some strange losses this season where the offense hasn't shown up, and that includes many recently where they didn't clip 60 points. Give me the free bucket with the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats.
