The Appalachian State Mountaineers and Georgia Southern Eagles face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Paulson Stadium. 

The Appalachian State Mountaineers found a lot of success early in the season but they have lost two of the last three games. In the last game against ULL they had every chance to pull out a victory, but they couldn’t make winning plays and that led to a three point loss. This season the strength has been the defense that is giving up only 16.6 points per game which has won them a lot of games. The Mountaineers offense is averaging 31.6 points per game. Zac Thomas is under center for Appalachian State and on the season he has thrown for 1867 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. In this game it’s going to be about the defense stepping up. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Georgia Southern Eagles who sit with a 7-4 record, but coming into this game they have lost two of the last three. The one win for Georgia Southern was in their last game against FAU, a game they only scored 20 points in, but they also gave up only three. On the season Georgia Southern is averaging 26.4 points per game while the defense is giving up 21.2 points per game. The Eagles are a run-first team and they are currently averaging 267,7 yards per game on the ground. At quarterback, Shai Werts has thrown for 937 yards, seven touchdowns, and six interceptions. Werts did miss the last game with a shoulder injury, and it’s clear at this point if he’s going to be able to go.

The under is 7-1 in Georgia Southern’s last eight home games. The under is 9-4 in Georgia Southern’s last 13 games overall. The over is 9-4 in the Eagles last 13 games as an underdog. 

These are two teams who have strong defenses and that is going to keep this game low scoring. Look for both teams to struggle to score, and for a lot of running. Back the under to cash with ease in this one.
