The Panthers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Black Knights are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 8-3 in Panthers last 11 non-conference games. The over is 7-3 in Black Knights last 10 home games.
The Georgia State Panthers have shown little to no life on the defensive side of the ball, and it's cost them in all 4 games this season. The Army Black Knights have been competitive despite their 1-2 record, and of course they have the third best rushing attack in the country. That's scary to think about when Georgia State has struggled so bad defensively and has the 88th best run defense. I'll lay the points with Army.
