The Charleston Cougars have had scoring issues at times this season and don't have success against the spread. The Georgia State Panthers are one of the best scoring teams in the country, and that includes beating Georgia Tech in their season opener. Georgia State has also been a covering machine at home dating back to last season. The Charleston Cougars are going to have a hard time keeping up on the offensive side. I'll eat the chalk with the Panthers.
