South Alabama vs. Troy Prediction
I’m picking Troy to win but for South Alabama to cover the spread at +5.5. I’m also predicting the game will go Under 45.5 total points.
I think this will be a low-scoring game. Both teams are in the top four in the Sun Belt in terms of total defense.
That should also lead to a fairly close game. While I don’t believe the Jaguars will ultimately win, I don’t think the Trojans are six points better, even at home. I’m anticipating Troy will control the game with its rushing attack, led by running back Kimani Vidal, and will win by three points.
