by Devin WeberOctober 12, 2021
  • South Alabama will win the game.
  • Georgia Southern will have more offense yards.
  • The game will be under the total points total (49.5)

The Eagles (Georgia Southern) are 2-4, after winning the first game, they went on a 3 game skid. They are 1-1 in their last two games. South Alabama is 3-2, they have lost two in a row, so both teams are looking to get back on track.

The game will be played in South Alabama and both teams are far from being ranked. However, both teams still have a chance to make a bowl bid. Both teams are about even in all the statist ratings, so we should have a good game coming up.

Georgia Southern vs South Alabama Prediction: Spread

This is not the case of a huge spread, but instead, it’s the case of a small spread. For our bet South Alabama will cover the 3.5 spread. However both teams are about equal to each other, so the game should be one worth watching.

Both teams have decent enough offenses, but South Alabama has the better defense. We see this game being on that is low-scoring but will end with a bang. South Alabama should definitely win and cover the spread.

The Eagles defense gives up about 16 more points on average than South Alabama. South Alabama might even get a big win.

  • Free Pick: South Alabama will cover the spread.

Georgia Southern vs South Alabama Prediction: MoneyLine

With a big difference in defense, it’s easy to see why South Alabama is the favorites to win the game. You might be asking why isn’t the spread higher? That’s because the Jaguars (South Alabama) have lost two straight, and they lost to a bad team last week.

However, Georgia Southern is not a great team themselves, and have not played many good football games this year. South Alabama should win, and their defense will play well again. This week both teams are going to struggle.

Neither team has a great offense, both are ranked mediocre, so a lower-scoring game makes sense. South Alabama’s defense will lead them to a victory.

  • Free Prediction: South Alabama will win the game.

Georgia Southern vs South Alabama Prediction: Total

Just started early, I said it will be a low-scoring game. I say the lackluster offenses and one great defense the game will be a struggle to score anything. Both teams have a lot to improve, and either team has played good football the last couple of weeks.

The final score might be low, but I see this still begins a game to watch. Both will have struggles on offense, but South Alabama will find a way to win. The final score will be South Alabama 24 to Georgia Southern 17.

  • Free Prediction: The game will be under the total points

Bet the Props

At the time of writing this article the prop bets are not open for this game. However, I like South Alabama defense for almost anything to do with yards, scores, and more. That is a perk of having a good defense.

South Alabama defense will rack up around three sacks and a couple of turnovers. Both offenses are going to have a harder time, so watch out for that.
