|-2.5 USA (-120) @ Fanduel|
The set-up: After winning three-straight, I think that App State finally stumbles here. South Alabama enters desperate to break a three-game slide. The Mountaineers most recently took two close games over Georiga Southern. South Alabama struggled to contain Coastal Carolina in its most recent back-to-back losses, but it catches a break today facing the Mountaineers.
The pick: App State allows teams to shoot 61.1 percent from inside the arc, so I look for Michael Flowers and the home side to push the pace here as they look to get back into the winners circle. I'll point out as well that App State has struggled mightily in this spot for bettors, going just 4-10 ATS in its last 14 road games following a three or more straight home contests. I like South Alabama to bounce back here and take advantage of App State's porous interior defense. Lay the short points.
This is an 8* DESTRUCTION on South Alabama.
