The Georgia Southern Eagles and Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns face off on Thursday in a college football showdown at Cajun Field. Louisiana has won the last three games over Georgia Southern.
Georgia Southern comes into this game with a 5-4 record overall, and they have gone 6-3 against the spread. In the last game against South Alabama, the defense gave up 38 points and that led to a seven-point defeat. Kyle Vantrease completed 26 of his 45 passes for 278 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Georgia Southern is averaging 36.3 points, while their defense is giving up 31.2 points per game. In this game, the Eagles are going to need to have a big game from Vantrease.
On the other side of this matchup is Louisiana, who sits with a 4-5 record, and they have gone 5-4 against the spread. In the last game against Troy, Louisiana scored 17 points, and that led to the six-point defeat. Louisiana was outscored 16-0 in the 4th quarter and that led to the defeat. Ben Wooldridge completed 13 of his 29 passes for 112 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Louisiana is averaging 25.6 points, while their defense is giving up 21.7 points per game. Chris Smith rushed 18 times for 97 yards. In this game, Louisiana is going to need the offense to be better in this game.
Georgia Southern is 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games. Louisiana is 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games. The over is 13-6 in Georgia Southern’s last 19 games in November. The underdog is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings played between the two teams. The road team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings played between the two teams.
I expect this game is going to be lower scoring. Louisiana in their last game struggled to score, but their defense has been good, and I expect that will be the case again in this game. Look for both teams to really struggle to score here, and this game is going to stay under the total.
