Line:Western Kentucky -7
With their second win in a row on Thursday, the Jaguars seem to have put the three game losing streak behind them. South Alabama was solid in their 68-65 victory over North Texas shooting 51 percent from the field including 4 of 7 from behind the arch. The Jaguars face their toughest conference challenge Saturday against the first place Hilltoppers who won the first match in the Mitchell Center 66-69 way back on December 18th.
Western Kentuckygained a 9 point victory over Louisiana- Monroe on Thursday, but was unable to pull away from the last place Warhawks. A road contest against second place Troy is next after Saturdays game.
South Alabama is 6-13-1 against the spread including 4-5-1 on the road
Western Kentucky is 9-12 against the spread including 4-5 at home
South Alabama has been an outstanding road team all year. I look for them to keep this one close and make a run at a victory.
