Against The Spread Pick
This number has moved down from 13 at the opening down to 10 at time of publication, which makes me like Georgia Southern even more. This is a Georgia Southern team that almost knocked off Minnesota on the road a couple of weeks ago. This isn’t the same Eagles team as last year. The Eagles haven’t had trouble scoring this fall, and are facing a Jaguars team that has only scored 26 points total over their last three games. The series has also been dominated by the Eagles. Eagles are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. Back the Eagles to get the job done in this game.
Over Under Pick
The total in this game has also moved down — to 45.5 — and the play is with the under. This is a good chance for the Eagles defense to flex their muscles, and that is what will happen. The Eagles offense will score, but I don’t think it will be enough to push it over. Under is 4-1 in Jaguars last 5 games overall. Under is 7-2 in Eagles last 9 Thursday games. Back the under to be the play.
