I am not sure South Alabama will be able to do the same, but being at home should help put a few numbers up to help the over hit. While both teams have clearly struggled on offense for the season, the Eagles were able to put up 32 points on the road against Minnesota. Its a little surprising to see the total so low. I think they will continue to have success against the Jaguars and put up a strong offense number. These two have hit the over in three of their last four meetings, and Georgia Southern has scored at least 48 points in each of those three games alone.

Malik Stanley led the team with 6 catches for 60 yards, while Sam Harris and Kawaan Baker each added a receiving touchdown in the win for South Alabama.

What this boils down to for me is simply the fact that Georgia Southern has shown us nothing to give us any confidence that theyd be able to get a cover let alone a win at home here. South Alabama has the weapons to put points on the board, something that the Eagles have lacked to this point this season, so Ill lay the points with the Jaguars here.
