College Football Betting Trends

Georgia State

The Panthers are 9-1 ATS in weeks five through nine over the last three seasons. Georgia State is 19-8 ATS in road games played on turf since 1992.


The Trojans are 2-0 straight up in the last two meetings. The last two meetings have gone under the total.


As strong as the Troy offense has been, it's defense has been pretty solid too and the Georgia State offense isn't much to write home about. Even if Troy puts a solid number of points on the board, I don't think Georgia State is going to help the total much. I could easily see a 38-14 type of game that slips under the total.
