What to Know
Get ready for a Sun Belt battle as the South Alabama Jaguars and the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns will face off at 9 p.m. ET Friday at Cajundome. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
South Alabama was able to grind out a solid victory over the Texas State-San Marcos Bobcats on Wednesday, winning 76-67.
Meanwhile, Louisiana strolled past the Arkansas State Red Wolves with points to spare on Wednesday, taking the contest 85-74.
The Jaguars are expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a five-game streak of ATS wins.
