Georgia Southern is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following an ATS win. The under is 4-0 in Georgia Southern’s last 4 neutral site games. Buffalo is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games. The over is 4-1 in Buffalo’s last 5 games.
Both of these teams really struggled in their lost four games, and they could have easily lost their last game to knock them out of a bowl game. Both defenses are not good, but the offenses are high-powered and have been able to make up for the poor defensive play. Despite the high scoring teams, I like the under here. The total is currently at 66.5 points, so we only need the defenses to make a few stops. Take the under here.
