Georgia Southern Eagles are 7-18-2 ATS in their last 27 games following a ATS win and Georgia Southern Eagles are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win. UL Monroe Warhawks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and UL Monroe Warhawks are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall.

UL Monroe are very tough at home and I’m inclined to give the Warhawks a look…

UL Monroe -1

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
