Against The Spread Pick
The third round of the Sun Belt Tournament sees Georgia Southern travel to Atlanta to take on Georgia State. The Eagles are playing solid basketball all of a sudden and they will be looking for their second win in a row and their fourth victory in five games. The Panthers faltered down the stretch as they lost three of their last four games before beating Little Rock. This is a team that relies on its offense to win games and they have a multitude of scorers capable of getting hot and making plays. Georgia Southern is 2-4 ATS in their last six games and a horrible 1-6 ATS in their last seven games played this month. Georgia State have been better in March = they are 5-1 in their last six – and just better ATS in general as of late where they are 4-3 in their last seven. This game being a home contest for the Panthers will put them over the edge.
Over Under Pick
The Eagles have scored 75.4 ppg and they are coming off a win in the conference tournament where they scored 82 points. They also give up plenty of points, averaging almost 71 ppg for their opponents on the season and giving up 81 last time out as they snuck a one-point win. The Panthers are an even better offensive team as they average almost 79 ppg. Their defense, however, is suspect and they give up 71.9 ppg on their end. The total is on the high end here but neither of these squads is particularly concerned about defending the basketball. Both teams will get close to their season average but the game will ultimately fall just short of the total. Take the under.
