Over on the South Alabama side, they’re 11-7 this season. The Jaguars are riding a three-game winning streak, taking out TX-Arlington, Arkansas State and Little Rock in that time. 

In the win over the Trojans, South Alabama’s Chad Lott posted 14 points with four rebounds. Josh Ajayi was also in double-figures for that game, posting 13 points and nine rebounds, while Trhae Mitchell had nine points and eight boards. 

The under is 5-0 in the Jaguars’ last five overall and 5-2 in their last seven Thursday games. South Alabama is 23-9-2 ATS in their last 34 Thursday games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five overall. 

Meanwhile, the Panthers are 5-0 ATS in their last five Thursday games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine road games. Georgia State is 18-6-2 ATS in their last 26 overall and 11-3-1 ATS in their last 15 after an ATS win. 

Georgia State has played pretty well over their last six games. The Panthers are 4-2 in that time, but their two losses were close—74-72 to Coastal Carolina and 90-87 to Arkansas State. Otherwise GA State has looked solid lately. 

As for South Alabama, they haven’t exactly been lighting up the scoreboard but they’ve been cruising along pretty well. The Jaguars are going to clamp down on defense here, but I think Georgia State has enough offensive juice to ride out a win/cover.
