The Old Dominion Monarchs and Georgia Southern Eagles meet Saturday in week 8 Sun Belt college football action at S.B. Ballard Stadium. The Georgia Southern Eagles look for a win after splitting their last 6 games. The Old Dominion Monarchs look to get a game above a .500 record.

The Georgia Southern Eagles have lost 3 straight road games. Kyle Vantrease is completing 60.5 percent of his passes for 2,511 yards, 17 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Khaleb Hood and Derwin Burgess Jr. have combined for 1,097 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Jeremy Singleton has 40 receptions. The Georgia Southern Eagles ground game is averaging 147.3 yards per contest, and Jalen White leads the way with 541 yards and 8 touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia Southern is allowing 31.4 points and 487.9 yards per game. Anthony Wilson leads the Georgia Southern Eagles with 52 tackles, Justin Ellis has 2.5 sacks and Tyler Bride has 2 interceptions.

The Old Dominion Monarchs have won 4 of their last 5 home games. Hayden Wolff is completing 57.9 percent of his passes for 1,431 yards, 11 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Ali Jennings III and Zack Kuntz have combined for 919 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns, while Javon Harvey has 12 receptions. The Old Dominion Monarchs ground game is averaging 115.8 yards per contest, and Blake Watson leads the way with 507 yards and 4 touchdowns. Defensively, Old Dominion is allowing 26.2 points and 452.8 yards per game. Jason Henderson leads the Old Dominion Monarchs with 84 tackles, Ryan Henry has 4 sacks and Terry Jones has 1 interception.

The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Monarchs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games on fieldturf. The under is 5-1 in Eagles last 6 games following a straight up win. The under is 5-2 in Monarchs last 7 home games.

The Georgia Southern Eagles are in a bit of a letdown spot after last week’s win over James Madison, and they’re still horrible defensively. The Old Dominion Monarchs have issues of their own, but they’ve played their best ball at home, and they’ve won the majority of the games they’re supposed to win this season. ODU should have offensive success against a Georgia Southern defense that can’t stop anybody. I’ll lay the small chalk.
