TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15TH
#181 SOUTH ALABAMA (-16′) over UL Monroe at 7 PM EST
Coming off a week of rest and clinging to a 4-1 SU record, South Alabama will continue to impress with a solid showing against visiting ULM. The Warhawks enter this contest off back-to-back straight up losses to the Red Wolves and Chanticleers, and this trip to Mobile will be a difficult one for head coach Terry Bowden and his boys.
Revenge motivation will have the Jaguars fired up for this contest. Last year, USA was a 13-point favorite at ULM and got absolutely destroyed 41-31. At home, South Alabama has performed very well lately notching a reliable 13-3 ATS mark in its last 16 games. In this setting priced as a favorite, the Jags tighten up to a golden 6-0 SU and ATS. Equally impressive, since 1996, regular season rested home favorites priced at -14 or more own a highly profitable 57-21 provided they are facing an opponent that owns a team won/loss percentage less than .350 that arrives off a pointspread win. As long as our “play on” side is not off a blowout victory of 30 points or more, this fast-developing system improves to a stunning 55-15 ATS.
Sporting a dismal 11-31 SU and 14-25 ATS mark in their last 42 games, ULM is having all kinds of trouble right now. In this run playing in a true road game, the Warhawks fall to a disturbing 0-17 SU and 4-13 ATS including a rough 0-6 SU and ATS in this setting priced as an underdog of +18 or less. Also, when priced as a double-digit underdog and now lined up against a foe that arrives with steam off a straight up win, head coach Terry Bowden’s boys hold a dismal 29-50 ATS mark. In this role playing on the road, ULM falls to a disturbing 20-45 ATS including an ugly 8-26 ATS provided its opponent holds a pointspread won/loss percentage of .501 or better.
Ranked last in the Sun Belt in scoring offense (avg 20.3 ppg) and scoring defense (allow an avg of 35.3 ppg), the Warhawks will have all kinds of issues matched up against a Jaguars bunch looking to take control of the West Division. Take South Alabama. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
