Jiya Wright QB vs Billy Wiles QB
Jiya Wright of UL Monroe has had a season that reflects the Warhawks’ struggles. With 69 completions on 127 attempts, he’s managed to throw for 775 yards and 7 touchdowns. However, his completion rate stands at a modest 54.3%, and his passer rating of 114.3 indicates that there’s much room for improvement. His agility in the pocket will be tested by the Golden Eagles’ defense, which may pressure him into making rushed decisions, potentially leading to turnovers.
In contrast, Southern Miss’s Billy Wiles has a slightly higher completion rate and more passing yards with 1,546. He shares a similar challenge with his counterpart, having thrown a concerning number of interceptions. The game could very well come down to which quarterback manages to stay cooler under pressure and makes the smarter decisions.
NCAAF Odds/Point Spread: Southern Miss Golden Eagles -135, Total Odds: 56.5
The betting odds suggest a tight contest, with Southern Miss as slight favorites despite their poorer record, indicating that home advantage and recent performances have been taken into account. The total of 56.5 points leans towards a higher-scoring game, which may suit both teams given their offensive weapons.
UL Monroe Warhawks Betting Trends

Southern Miss Golden Eagles Betting Trends
Southern Miss hasn’t been faring well against the spread, with a 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games. The Golden Eagles, however, have seen the total go over in four of their last five games, which might indicate their defense could be letting through as many points as their offense scores.
