College Football Betting Odds
The Mountaineers are 5-0 ATS in the their last five road games. Appalachian State is 9-1 ATS in its last 10 games overall.
The Eagles are 0-4 ATS in their last four Thursday games. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings.
Appalachian State is having a wonderful season, but shouldn't overlook a Georgia Southern squad whose only loss came against powerful Clemson. Geared up, at home and looking for the upset - I like the Eagles' chances here to make this a close game and cover as a fairly big underdog.
