The Appalachian State Mountaineers look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Appalachian State Mountaineers are averaging 77.7 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 81.3 points on 47 percent shooting. Ronshad Shabazz is averaging 18.2 points and 2.6 assists while Justin Forrest is averaging 16 points and 3.3 rebounds.

The Panthers are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. Sun Belt, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Mountaineers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Sun Belt, 3-9 ATS in their last 12 Thursday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The home team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 15-7 in Mountaineers last 22 overall. The under is 5-2 in Panthers last 7 road games.

The over is an extremely popular trend for the Appalachian State Mountaineers this season, especially at home where they're averaging a combined 164.4 points. The Georgia State Panthers come into this game shooting 48.8 percent from the field and 40.5 percent from three in their last five games. This feels like it's going to be another high scoring game for the Mountaineers and the over is a stronger play than the side.
