South­ern Miss over UL-MON­ROE by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Bat­tle be­tween two 2nd-year head coaches (ULM’s Matt Vi­a­tor and USM’s Jay Hop­son) finds the Warhawks fresh from a week off - not to men­tion avoid­ing an­ni­hi­la­tion by Florida State - thanks to Hur­ri­cane Irma. ULMon­roe ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions in its opener at Mem­phis two weeks ago, ac­tu­ally out­gain­ing the Tigers (425-416) in a nar­row 37-29 de­feat – as 29-point road dogs! Mean­while, South­ern Miss re­bounded from a 7-point sea­son-open­ing home loss to Ken­tucky by blast­ing FCS foe South­ern Univer­sity, 45-0. The bad news for the Golden Ea­gles (aside from sched­ul­ing a cup­cake) is that they’re just in games af­ter pitch­ing a goose egg, plus they have a mean­ing­ful re­venger up next against North texas (lost SU as 6-point chalk to the Green last sea­son). Cou­ple Smissy’s 5-10 ATS mark as non-con­fer­ence road chalk with ULM’s 7-4 ATS home dog log of 6 or more puts the Warhawks on our ticket tonight.
