Pick: Georgia Southern (-125)
Thursday night takes us to the Deep South where the Georgia State Panthers hit the road to play the Georgia Southern Eagles in a massive rivalry matchup to kick off the ninth week of the college football season. Both of these teams have put together solid seasons through their first nine weeks of the year, and both of them will be looking for a quality win here on Thursday night as they look to take one step closer to competing for a conference championship and bowl eligibility this season.
Georgia State comes into this game with six victories, and only a single loss on their record through their first seven games of the season. They will be looking to pick up their seventh victory of the season against their rivals here on Thursday night as they look to take one step closer towards playing for a conference championship in the Sun Belt this season. This is a program that is barely less than a decade old at the FBS ranks, and they have made plenty of progress over the last several seasons to get where they are at now and they have an opportunity to break through the glass ceiling and find a lot of success at the end of this season, if they keep the momentum rolling.
They have found great success this season thus far, and they will be looking to grab a crucial victory over their rivals as they look to further improve their bowl game selection at the end of the season if they continue to rack up wins throughout the last five weeks of the regular season. They come into this game riding a two game-winning streak after picking up victories against Louisiana, Lafayette, and Marshall, and their previous two contests. They have won their last three games away from home, and they will be looking to make it for consecutive road wins with a victory here on Thursday night.

Georgia Southern will be looking for a crucial victory here on Thursday night at home against Georgia State as they look to pick up their sixth victory of the season and become bowl eligible. Not only will they be looking to play their way into a bowl game, they will also be searching for a massive conference victory in the Sun Belt conference, as they look to get one step closer to playing in the conference championship game this season. Georgia Southern comes into this game with two victories inside of the conference, and a third victory would put them only a single game behind James Madison for the top spot in the division, and it would allow them to jump over their rivals as well.
They have been solid through their first seven games of the season as they have picked up five victories, and they have been a tough team to beat at home and they will be hoping they can keep them a momentum rolling on their successful season with another victory here on Thursday in week number nine of the year. Georgia Southern has picked up a victory in their previous two home games by the same exact score of 38 to 28 and they will be looking to grab another double digit victory here in this one for their second consecutive win of the season as they look to continue bouncing back from their loss to James Madison two weeks ago.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Georgia Southern is 4-0 at home this season
- Southern has won all their games at home by 10+
- Georgia Southern is 2-1 in the Sun Belt
I expect this to be a close and competitive game between these two rival schools, but in the end, I have Georgia Southern picking up the victory at home over Georgia State here on Thursday night to grab their sixth victory of the season. I could easily see this game, being high scoring and end up going to overtime as well but in the end, I still look for Georgia Southern to pull out the victory here and week number nine of the year.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
