South Alabama v Southern Miss 9/3/20 Betting Prediction
South Alabama will definitely want to forget the 2019 season when they finished with just 2 wins out of 12 games. Head coach Steve Campbell is working under a lot of pressure because he only won 5 games in his two years as a Jaguar and the news are not very good for him. RB Tra Minter is no longer playing for South Alabama and the offense was averaging just 18.4 points per game in 2019. I expect these numbers either to drop a bit or remain the same and that can’t be good news for any team.
Southern Miss had a decent season and finished 7-6. The Golden Eagles are playing very well at home and most of their losses came on the road. QB Quez Watkins is gone and there are big changes in the coaching personnel, losing many of their coordinators. The passing game was one of the best in the country in 2019 and I expect this not to be the case this season with a new QB at the helm.
I do not like both teams but the difference in terms of quality is visible. South Alabama will definitely continue their struggles and it is impossible to think that they can be competitive on the road. The Golden Eagles have some very experienced receivers who can help the new QB along the way and start his season with a big win.
