Southern Miss vs. Louisiana Prediction: Should We Trust the Golden Eagles?

The Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns and the Southern Miss Golden Eagles will duel things out from Reed Green Coliseum on Thursday night. This game may fly under the radar, but this is a pivotal game for both teams. The main reason for that is the winner of this game tonight moves to the top spot in the Sun Belt. The Sun Belt will not have any teams make the tournament via at-large bids, so the only path to March is to win the conference. These two teams are the two most likely to represent the Sun Belt.

Let's get into my pick for tonight.

I am going to back the Golden Eagles on the moneyline tonight. The difference in this game will be the Southern Miss defense. This is an extremely athletic defense that makes life difficult for their opponents. They have played their best ball at home this year and I would be surprised if they do not come out fired up for this pivotal contest tonight. Let’s stay hot on the hardwood and cash in tonight!
