With an overall record of 1-2, Central Michigan is prepared for this game. Unfortunately, their most recent performance resulted in a loss to Notre Dame, with a score of 41-17. Although Jase Bauer did toss a touchdown against Notre Dame, he did find the endzone with his legs. Overall, he threw for 137 while completing 50.0% of his passes.

The South Alabama Jaguars are heading into this week’s game with an above .500 record of 2-1. In their most recent game, they added a win to their record by taking down Oklahoma State (33-7). In the win to Oklahoma State, quarterback Carter Bradley concluded with a QB rating of 133.33 while connecting on 10 of 16 passes for 152 yards. Moreover, he contributed two touchdowns to the game.

Even though I have South Alabama winning this one straight-up, I’d stick to the moneyline. Look for this to be a closer game than expected with South Alabama eventually pulling out a win over Central Michigan.
