The Georgia State Panthers and Louisiana Monroe Warhawks meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Fant-Ewing Coliseum.

The Georgia State Panthers look for another win after winning nine of their last 11 games. The Georgia State Panthers are averaging 74.7 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 73.4 points on 43.5 percent shooting. D'Marcus Simonds is averaging 19 points and 3.5 assists while Devin Mitchell is averaging 13.5 points and 1.5 rebounds. Jeff Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Malik Benlevi is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Georgia State Panthers are shooting 38.2 percent from beyond the arc and 63.3 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia State Panthers are allowing 33.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.7 rebounds per game. The Georgia State Panthers have won five of their last eight road games.

The Louisiana Monroe Warhawks could use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Louisiana Monroe Warhawks are averaging 76.8 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 74.6 points on 46 percent shooting. Daishon Smith is averaging 20.2 points and 3.6 assists while Michael Ertel is averaging 15.6 points and 2.5 rebounds. Travis Munnings is the third double-digit scorer and JD Williams is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Louisiana Monroe Warhawks are shooting 39.6 percent from beyond the arc and 79.3 percent from the free throw line. The Louisiana Monroe Warhawks are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30 rebounds per game. The Louisiana Monroe Warhawks have won nine of their last 10 home games.

The Panthers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Sun Belt and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Warhawks are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Sun Belt, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The favorite is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Warhawks last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Panthers last 5 road games.

The Louisiana Monroe Warhawks took Georgia State down to the wire three weeks ago, losing by one point despite being 6.5-point underdogs. Louisiana Monroe is an impressive 13-7 ATS on the season and is winning at home by an average of 10.2 points. The Georgia State Panthers have managed to win a lot on the road this season, but they're still being outscored by an average of 3.1 points and struggle to score the basketball at times. Laying the bucket with the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks, a team that's been very consistent at home, seems like the play in this spot. 

Pick:
Louisiana-Monroe -2
