What to Know

The South Alabama Jaguars will be returning home after a two-game road trip. The Jaguars and the Arkansas State Red Wolves will face off in a Sun Belt battle at 8 p.m. ET Thursday at Mitchell Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

South Alabama came up short against the Georgia State Panthers on Saturday, falling 68-58.

Meanwhile, Arkansas State's 2022 ended with an 84-72 loss against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks on Saturday.

South Alabama is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past three games.

South Alabama didn't have too much trouble with Arkansas State at home when the two teams previously met in February of last year as they won 70-51. Will the Jaguars repeat their success, or do the Red Wolves have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
