The Texas State Bobcats and Georgia State Panthers play Saturday at the Georgia Dome.

The Texas State Bobcats hope to keep things going after winning three of their last five games. Tyler Jones is completing 64 percent of his passes for 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Jones has three touchdowns and zero picks in his last two games and Texas State has 17 passing plays of 25 or more yards. Bradley Miller and Brandon Smith have combined for more than 700 receiving yards and two touchdowns while C.J. Best has 11 receptions in his last two games. Texas State’s ground game is averaging 5.1 yards per carry, as Robert Lowe leads the way with 945 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, the Texas State Bobcats are allowing 27.4 points, 439.7 yards, and they’ve forced 26 sacks and 16 turnovers. David Mayo leads Texas State with 147 tackles and Michael Odiari has 11 tackles for loss.

The Georgia State Panthers have one more chance to win their first game since opening week. Nick Arbuckle is completing 59.3 percent of his passes for 19 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Arbuckle has three touchdowns and five picks in his last two games, and Georgia State has produced 31 passing plays of 25 or more yards. Donovan Harden and Robert Davis have combined for more than 1,400 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Lynquez Blair has 14 receptions in his last two games. Georgia State’s ground game is averaging 2.7 yards per carry, as Marcus Caffey leads the way with 282 rushing yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, the Georgia State Panthers are allowing 42.4 points, 487.1 yards, and they’ve forced 12 sacks and eight turnovers. Joseph Peterson leads Georgia State with 91 tackles and Trey Payne has 5.5 tackles for loss.

The Bobcats are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Panthers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 7-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

The Texas State Bobcats should win this game rather easily considering Georgia State has checked out weeks ago. Give me the line just under two full touchdowns. 

Pick:
Texas State Bobcats -13.5
