Georgia State is 1-4-1 against the spread in their last 6 Saturday games. The Panthers are 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 road games. Louisiana Monroe is 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 home games. The Warhawks are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games overall.
Louisiana Monroe is one of the best teams in the Sun Belt Conference and have been on fire winning 8 games in a row. Georgia State has had a decent season but it doesnt look like they will be making it back to the Tournament. I think Louisiana Monrow has more to play for and wins big at home.
