The Eagles are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on turf and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. The Panthers are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games on turf and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games in November. The under is 8-3 in Eagles last 11 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Panthers last 5 home games. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Georgia Southern Eagles are a solid football team with a good defense and one of the top rushing attacks, but they've had issues finishing drives offensively and that has a lot to do with a limited passing game. The Georgia State Panthers have a little more balance to their attack, and they're top-30 in college football at stopping the run, so they should be up to this task. This is also the last game of the season for Georgia State, so the Panthers will be up to end the season on a high note.
I'll take the home team in this toss-up rivalry.
