Over on the Georgia Southern side, they’re 13-9 this year. After dropping consecutive games versus South Alabama and Georgia State, the Eagles won their Thursday game versus Troy. 

In the win over the Trojans, Georgia Southern’s Quan Jackson put up 21 points with five rebounds and two assists. Isaiah Crawley put up 18 points with 10 rebounds and Calvin Wishart had 13 points there. 

The Eagles are 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine Saturday games and 6-2-3 ATS in their last 11 home games. The under is 5-2 in the Eagles’ last seven home games and the over is 5-0 in their last five after an ATS win. 

Meanwhile, the over is 4-0 in the Jaguars’ last four overall and 5-1 in their last six after a straight-up loss. The under is 5-2 in South Alabama’s last seven road games and the over is 5-1 in their last six after a straight-up loss.
If there’s a bright side to South Alabama’s recent play, it’s that they’re still scoring pretty well, with at least 71 points in each of their last four straight games. The Jaguars have been within four in each of their last three losses also. 

As for Georgia Southern, they usually finish above 70 points themselves this season, and they’ve logged at least 77 in three of their last four. I feel like the Eagles are probably the better cover option here.
