Traveion Webster leads the Warhawks with 56 tackles, Ivin White Jr. has 2.5 sacks and Austin Hawley has one interception.
The Georgia State Panthers need a win here to get back to a .500 record. The Georgia State Panthers have won six of their last nine home games. Cornelious Brown IV is completing 59.2 percent of his passes for 947 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions. Brown has five touchdown passes in his last three games.

The Warhawks are 3-8 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Panthers are 7-15-2 ATS in their last 24 conference games and 2-7-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The under is 7-1 in Warhawks last 8 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Panthers last 6 games overall. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
The Louisiana Monroe Warhawks are easily one of the worst teams in college football with an 0-7 record and they don't provide much betting value either with them failing to cover five of those games. However, let's not act like the Georgia State Panthers are worldbeaters, as they're one of the worst defensive teams in the country and just got rocked by Coastal Carolina, 51-0. Sometimes the market can overreact to one team being so bad that it just spits out any old number the other way. I'm not laying monster chalk with Georgia State and that rough defense.
If forced to pick this game, I want Louisiana Monroe and the points.
