The Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games, 15-6-1 ATS in their last 22 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Panthers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS loss. The Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Georgia St and the road team is 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 6-2 in Panthers last 8 overall. The under is 5-1 in Bobcats last 6 road games.
The Georgia State Panthers have won each of the last four meetings against the Texas State Bobcats, which includes a four point win on the road a couple of weeks ago. The Texas State Bobcats have been really good against the number, which includes an 11-6 record on the season. The Georgia State Panthers are winning by an average of 7.3 points at home this season while shooting 48.4 percent from the field. Texas State has been really good to back in spots like this, but we're not getting enough points to fade a really good Georgia State side. The Georgia State Panthers are unbeaten at home this season and have had their way offensively in those games. I'll lay the bucket with the Panthers at home.
