The Line: Georgia State Panthers PK -- Over/Under:
The Troy Trojans and Georgia State Panthers meet Saturday in college football action at Georgia State Stadium.
The Troy Trojans could use a road win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Troy Trojans have won five of their last eight road games. Kaleb Barker is completing 64.1 percent of his passes for 1,670 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions. Barker has two or more touchdown passes in five of his six games. Kaylon Geiger and Reggie Todd have combined for 766 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Luke Whittemore has 22 receptions. The Troy Trojans ground game is averaging 156.5 yards per contest, and DK Billingsley leads the way with 450 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Troy is allowing 28.8 points and 381 yards per game. Carlton Martial leads the Troy Trojans with 59 tackles, Travis Sailo has two sacks and Will Sunderland has three interceptions.
The Georgia State Panthers look to stay hot while building on their three-game winning streak. The Georgia State Panthers have won their last three home games. Dan Ellington is completing 65.7 percent of his passes for 1,582 yards, 16 touchdowns and three interceptions. Ellington has two or more touchdown passes in four of his seven games. Cornelius McCoy and Sam Pinckney have combined for 839 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Jonathan Ifedi has 14 receptions. The Georgia State Panthers ground game is averaging 238.2 yards per contest, and Tra Barnett leads the way with 686 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia State is allowing 35.1 points and 437.1 yards per game. Trajan Stephens-McQueen leads the Georgia State Panthers with 69 tackles, Ed Curney has three sacks and Quavian White has one interception.
The Trojans are 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 conference games, 20-7 ATS in their last 27 road games and 15-7-1 ATS in their last 23 games overall. The Panthers are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games in October, 3-10-2 ATS in their last 15 conference games and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 18-8 in Panthers last 26 home games. The under is 16-6-1 in Trojans last 23 road games.
The Troy Trojans have had trouble at times this season getting off the field, allowing 42 or more points in three of their last five games. The Georgia State Panthers are playing some solid football across the board and could be sitting pretty in the Sun Belt if their three-overtime game against Texas State went a little different. Either way, Georgia State is playing better football and has the better resume. I'll side with the Panthers at home in this pick em game.
