Georgia State hammered last week
The Georgia State Panthers are coming off a 41-7 loss at N.C. State last weekend to fall to 1-1 on the season. Their win was a 24-20 victory over Kennesaw State. Georgia State is 1-1 against the spread and 1-1 with the over/under. The Panthers have hit the under in four of their last five games.
The Panthers are putting up 332 yards per game on the season while allowing 461.5 yards per game. That includes 313.5 passing yards per contest. Quarterback Dan Ellington has been leading the offense this year, throwing for 381 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 107 yards. No Panthers backs have more than 52 yards rushing right now.
Memphis edged at Navy
Memphis is coming off a 22-21 loss at Navy last week for a 1-1 start. The Tigers defeated Mercer 66-14 in its opener. The Tigers are 1-1 against the spread and 1-1 with the over/under total. Memphis has hit the over in four of its last six games.
The Memphis offense is averaging 565 yards per game so far, but most came against Mercer. Last week’s loss saw Memphis put up 378 yards of offense, including 233 rushing yards. However, the team had four turnovers. Darrell Henderson rushed for 212 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Memphis offense while Brady White threw for 145 yards and an interception. Defensively, Memphis allowed just 316 yards to the Midshipmen.
College Football Betting Trends
Georgia State has hit the under in 24 of its last 32 games overall and in nine of its last 12 road games.
Memphis has hit the over in seven of its last eight non-conference games and in 20 of its last 28 home games.
Memphis should be able to control this game. It has a dominant run game behind Henderson and I don’t see Georgia State being able to stop them. The Tigers have enough of a defense that should keep Georgia State in check on offense. Look for Memphis to control the clock behind Henderson, which should keep this total somewhat low.
College Football Prediction: Georgia State/Memphis Under 58.5
