Georgia State Covering Coming Off a Win

Georgia State Football

The Georgia State Panthers ended their season in a flurry with four consecutive wins to book themselves a trip to the Cure Bowl, but that winning streak also extended a profitable run at the betting window as Georgia State is 5-0 ATS in their past five following a win. The Panthers will take on San Jose State on December 19 in Orlando.

Shark Bites
  • San Jose State is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 against the Sun Belt.
  • The total has gone UNDER in Georgia State’s past five games.
  • Georgia State’s Nick Arbuckle is one of seven quarterbacks in the FBS to throw for 4,000-plus yards this season.
