Against The Spread Pick
Both of these teams are enjoying success as of late with Georgia State winning their last three and UT Arlington winning two of their last three. This game is going to come down to the matchup between Georgia State’s offense versus Arlington’s defense. The Mavericks are only allowing an average of 65 points to opponents at home. Georgia State on the other hand is 27th best in scoring on the road and shoots 43 percent from the field. Georgia State is 8-3 ATS in their last eleven games and Arlington is 6-3 ATS in their last nine. This game should be one of the more evenly matched contested on Thursday and fun one to watch. This season the Panthers are 16-8-1 ATS and I feel that they are just the better team. I see Georgia State covering.
Over Under Pick
Both of these team have their defensive flaws. They’re terrible at rebounding on defense which will lead to a lot of second and third chances for both sides. Georgia State plays at a fast tempo and is averaging 76 possessions per game for a rank of 21st in the country. Not only that but Georgia State can pour it on from beyond the arc. The Panthers shoot 37.5 percent from deep. The trends favor the over heavily as it as hit in six of Georgia State’s last seven and in nine of UTA’s last twelve. The play is the over.
