Chris’ Pick

I’m going with the over here. I lean towards Georgia Southern, but the Monarchs need this win and I think we see a bit of a renewed sense of urgency here from the Monarchs. Georgia Southern’s pass attack should have its way with Old Dominion here, and the Eagles’ defense is sorely lacking across the board, so I think ODU can get theirs as well here. Give me the over.
