The Line: Georgia State Panthers -8 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Georgia State Panthers will be hosting the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns on Saturday afternoon.
The Georgia State Panthers are currently sitting in third place in the Sun Belt Conference, owning a record of 12-7 on the season. The Panthers are a solid 3-1 in their last four outings, and Georgia State is coming off a win on the 19th over Arkansas State. The Panthers are very solid offensively, putting up an average of 73 points per game on the year, while shooting an impressive 48 percent from the floor. The offense is there for the Panthers, but defensively this team has lacked at times, and the rebounding is a major issue for the Panthers, as Georgia State has some of the worst rebounding numbers in the Nation right now.

The UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns are currently sitting at third place in the Sun Belt as well, as the Ragin’ Cajuns have a record of 11-8 on the season right now. ULL, like the Panthers are very solid offensively, in fact the Ragin’ Cajuns currently have an offense that is ranked 18th nationally in points scored per game, with an average of 81.2 points per outing. ULL has dropped three out of their last four heading into this meeting with the Panthers.
I have to lay the points here with Georgia Southern. The Panthers are just the better team, and even though eight is probably close to the right number, if you are going to make a play on this one, I’d take the Panthers at home against the Ragin’ Cajuns.
