The Line: Georgia State Panthers +7.5 — Over/Under:
The Georgia State Panthers will also be looking to climb back to .500 after dropping back-to-back outings, including a 59-22 loss to Memphis last time out. Dan Ellington has completed 61% of his 82 pass attempts this season for 488 yards, 3 touchdowns and an interception while Destin Coates is GSU’s leading rusher with 120 yards on 20 carries. Penny Hart is Georgia State’s lone 100-yard receiver this season with a team-high 12 catches for 134 yards this season. Georgia State’s offense is averaging 326 yards per game through the first three games this season while scoring just 17.7 points per game this season.
Western Michigan is 19-9 ATS in their last 28 road games and 23-11 ATS in their last 34 games following a win while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Sun Belt. Georgia State is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in September while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 home games.
I’m not reading too much into Western Michigan routing Delaware State, however the Broncos have had a slightly tougher schedule in my opinion compared to Georgia State. The problem for Georgia State is that the Broncos have found scoring points much easier than the Panthers have and have been solid on the road for a few seasons now. All in all, I’ll side with the Broncos to keep up their offensive prowess and I’ll lay the points on the road here.
