LINE: South Alabama -3
ATS PICK: South Alabama
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
This is nothing at all against Texas State.
The Bobcats have been two tons of fun this season with an offense that’s fast, a passing game that’s pushing it around a bit, a defense that’s active and forcing turnovers, and with a mindset that it’s time to be better at college football.
Yeah, it’s 1-4, but it hung with SMU in a seven point loss, had Boston College in big trouble in a 24-21 defeat, lost a several overtime game against UTSA partially because of kicking issues, and …
South Alabama has lost its last two games – battling in a 27-24 loss to Tulane before getting rolled a few weeks ago by UAB – but it’s rested, it’s at home, and it should be able to win this game if the defensive line can be as good at getting into the backfield and applying pressure as it was early on.
The downfield passing game is the best in the Sun Belt so far – which is saying a lot considering the Arkansas State-Georgia State fun of Thursday night – and it has the offensive pop to never be out of this even if Texas State gets up.
Yada, yada yada … the play is the home team by more than 3.
