Rice (144) at James Madison (107)

  • Sunday 1:00 PM CT
  • Streaming Link
  • Betting Lines: JMU -5.5
  • Prediction: This is the most important C-USA game of the first weekend. Rice has a chance to win a rare away game which they did just twice last season. ODU knocked off the Dukes in Norfolk Friday night, 62-55. Owls should win this one kicking off a very promising season.

UTSA (302) at Oregon State (77)

  • Sunday 4:00 PM CT
  • PAC12 Network
  • Betting Lines: OSU -18.5
  • Prediction: MAJOR props to the Roadrunners in their close defeat, 69-66, at Fresno State last night. They were a 18.5 point dog coming in and I expected that type of result. We’ll get in to more detail of Steven Henson’s masterfully coached game in the C-USA weekend review on Monday. Beavers should win this one barring another unexpected UTSA performance.

SIU Edwardsville (290) at FAU (249)

  • Sunday 6:30 PM CT
  • No live stream
  • Betting Lines: FAU -1
  • Prediction: I was disappointed to see the Owls drop their first game in Hawaii to Texas State. Nothing was clicking offensively for Michael Curry’s squad on Friday and I felt they should have been the better team. FAU faces another beatable opponent Sunday and should take advantage of the opportunity. Owls win.
