Texas State, Georgia State, and Georgia Southern all have 12-5 records in the Sun Belt. The Bobcats have a tough assignment at Texas-Arlington, who is one game behind the leaders and they have already beaten Texas State. If UTAR pulls off the sweep in afternoon action, that would make this contest for the SBC regular season title and No. 1 seed for next week’s tourney.

The oddsmakers are of the opinion there previous number was correct despite falling short of the set total and would appear to think that the Eagles playing at home will dictate the tempo. In Georgia Southern’s 30 contests, the average score has been 158.9 points, compared to their bitter rivals at 151.1 total points.

Overall the sportsbooks have done a good job in reading each team just a little more off on the home on the overall record, however, because of the perception of the Eagles them averaging 83.4 points a game, most likely the majority of bets have gone to the Over side.
