College Football Betting Preview: Southern Miss Golden Eagles vs. South Alabama Jaguars
October 17, 2023
A pair of Sun Belt rivals will square off against each other on ESPN 2 on Tuesday evening when the Southern Miss Golden Eagles travel to Mobile, Alabama to face the South Alabama Jaguars and Hancock Whitney Stadium at 7:30 PM ET in week 8 of the college football season.
The Southern Miss Golden Eagles enter this game with a record of 1-5 following a 13-17 loss at home against the Old Dominion Monarchs while failing to cover the 3-point spread as a home favorite in week 6 of the college football season. Southern Miss scored 13 points while compiling a total of 276 yards offensively which included 166 passing yards and 110 rushing yards while allowing 17 points and 337 total yards defensively which included 194 passing yards and 143 rushing yards. Billy Wiles led the team in passing, completing 15 of 26 attempts for 166 yards. Frank Gore Jr. led the team in rushing with 29 carries for 66 yards while adding a reception for 16 yards. Jakarius Caston led the team in receiving, catching five of 11 targets for 51 yards.
South Alabama enters this game with a record of 3-3 following a 55-7 win on the road against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks while covering the 11-point spread as a road favorite in week 6 of the college football season. The Jaguars scored 55 points while compiling a total of 589 yards offensively which included 387 passing yards and 202 rushing yards while allowing 7 points and 254 total yards defensively which included 112 passing yards and 142 rushing yards. Carter Bradley led the team in passing, completing 20 of 29 attempts for 303 yards and three touchdowns. La’Damian Webb led the team in rushing with 19 carries for 100 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for 22 yards. Caullin Lacy led the team in receiving, catching seven of nine targets for 156 yards and a touchdown.
BookMaker has the South Alabama Jaguars listed as 17-point favorites at home against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles on Tuesday evening in week 8 of the college football season. South Alabama has won the three meetings all-time in the series while winning by an average margin of 14 points per game in those contests and going 2-1 ATS in those matchups. Southern Miss is 1-5 ATS overall, 0-2 ATS on the road, 0-3 ATS as an underdog, and 0-3 ATS in conference games this season while the South Alabama Jaguars are 2-4 ATS overall, 0-2 ATS at home, 1-2 ATS as a favorite, and 1-1 ATS in conference games on the year.
Neither team has had the season they had hoped for as the Southern Miss Golden Eagles have only won one game this season while the South Alabama Jaguars enter this game at .500 despite being the favorite to win the Sun Belt this season. This is a rivalry game though so you can throw the records out in this game and even though I like South Alabama to win this game 17 points is too much to give up which is why I will gladly take the Southern Miss Golden Eagles when they travel to face the South Alabama Jaguars on Tuesday evening.
