The Georgia State Panthers and the Western Michigan Broncos will match up on the college football circuit Saturday.

Georgia State comes in here at 2-0 on the year. The Panthers took out Tennessee in their opener 38-30, then took care of Furman last weekend 48-42.

In the Paladins loss, Georgia State QB Dan Ellington had 362 yards and five touchdowns. Ellington also led the rush with 86 yards, and Cornelius McCoy had 143 yards and a TD off 10 catches.

Over on the Western Michigan side, they’re 1-1 this season. The Broncos managed a 48-13 victory over Monmouth in their first game, then fell to Michigan State 51-17.

In the Spartans game, Western Michigan QB Jon Wassink had 252 yards with one TD and two picks, and LaVante Bellamy led the rush on 44 yards. Keith Mixon had 71 yards on four catches for the Broncos as well.

The Panthers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five non-conference games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five in September. Georgia State is 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine road games and 0-5-2 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up win.

Meanwhile, the Broncos are 5-2 ATS in their last seven versus the Sun Belt and 2-5 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Georgia State is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 overall and 4-10 ATS in their last four on turf.

The Panthers offense came off very impressive last week and put up some nice numbers through the air. Western Michigan can put up points this year too if they’re so motivated; even 17 against Michigan State is pretty decent.

Still, I’m going to go with Georgia State remaining on a roll here and take the Panthers for the cover.

Pick:
Georgia State Panthers +11
