Thursday Night College Football Week 1 Sports Betting Preview between South Alabama Jaguars vs Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles. This opening night clash is set to kickoff September 3rd at 9pm et at M.M. Roberts Stadium in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

The College Football odds opened up with Southern Mississippi as -16 point favorites, but the line has dropped to have them now as just a -13 point favorite. The over/under is currently 53.5 total points. The betting public has 54% of their money on the Golden Eagles.

South Alabama comes into this game off a horrible 2019 season where they won only 2 games. They did finished with a bright spot though when redshirt sophomore Quarterback Desmond Trotter replaced Johnson and got them a season ending win over a decent Arkansas State team. Look for Trotter to make some big throws to his talented wide receivers in this game and our eyeballs will be on a possible player prop for this once the line comes out, so comment below to get in on this action.

South Alabama is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games and the total has gone under in 5 of the Jaguars last 5 games on the road.

Southern Miss comes into this game off a 7-6 subpar 2019 season. They reached the Armed Forces Bowl, where the Golden Eagles lost to Tulane 30-13. Quarterback Jack Abraham does make the return for his senior season. Abraham completed 68 percent of his passes last season for 3,496 yards and 19 touchdowns, but threw 15 interceptions. Southern Mississippi offensive last season average 411.3 yards per game and scored an average of 27.8 points per game, so they should have no problem putting up 33 plus points against this Jaguars defense who gave up an average of 30.7 points per game.

Southern Miss is 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games played in week 1 and the total has gone under in 6 of the Golden Eagles last 6 games.

Our numbers show the best opportunity to make money on this South Alabama vs Southern Mississippi game is to buy that half a point and take Southern Mississippi -12.5 at the -120 price.
