Georgia Southern Eagles Betting Preview

Georgia Southern will be making their second appearance in a Bowl Game and will be looking to remain unbeaten after winning in their last trip to a bowl. The Eagles put together a solid 9-3 record on the season, doing so by running a triple-option offense that sees the ball stay on the ground more often than not.They had over 260 YPG on the ground as opposed to just 82 YPG through the air, so they are not going to surprise anyone with the offense that they bring to the table. It is stopping them that has proven to be difficult for the opposition. The Eagles went 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games, and they also seemed to thrive when installed as the favorite, as they are here, going 6-2 ATS in those games.

Eastern Michigan Eagles Betting Preview

Eastern Michigan was forced into a playoff-type mentality in the closing weeks of the season, as they needed 2 wins from their final 3 games to become bowl eligible. They went one better than was necessary, closing out their regular season on a 3-game winning streak. They shut things down on defense in those games, giving up an average of just a little over 11 PPG in that 3-game win streak. As good as that run was, they did only manage to cover the spread once in the final 4 games of the season, going 7-5 ATS overall. Where they really seemed to shine, at least in terms of the point spread, was as the underdog, going 4-2 ATS in games where they were handed the dog label. They bring a more a balanced attack to the table, averaging 27 PPG this season.

Georgia Southern vs Eastern Michigan Betting Pick

I really like how Eastern Michigan closed out the season. Defense should be the name of the game and I am taking the Eagles to win straight up in a close game.
