UL Monroe heads from Georgia Southern to Georgia State when they meet the Panthers on Saturday in a Sun Belt Conference matchup.

ULM edged by Eagles

UL Monroe fell at Georgia Southern on Thursday, 79-78 on a three-pointer at the buzzer from Quan Jackson. Daishon Smith led the Warhawks with 27 points on 8-of-15 shooting, while Michael Ertel added 22 points on 9-of-19 shooting. ULM shot 43.5 percent from the field and 12-of-31 from beyond the arc. They outrebounded Georgia Southern by six. But they also turn the ball over 16 times and allowed the Eagles to shoot 10-of-254 (40%) from beyond the arc. That was the Warhawks’ first conference loss as they are also just 2-6 on the road (7-0 at home).

ULM also received just seven points from their bench, while the Eagles had 24 off the bench. On the season, Daishon Smith leads the Warhawks with 21.6 points per game on 52.4 percent shooting (1.9 steals). The issue for UL Monroe is not on offense. They are averaging 76.4 points per game on 44 percent shooting. They rank seventh in the nation in three-point shooting percentage (41%). On defense, they allow 70.1 points per game on 43.4 percent shooting (33% 3pt).

Eagles improve to 3-0 in Sun Belt

Georgia State improved to 3-0 in the Sun Belt and 12-4 overall after an 89-76 win over UL Lafayette on Jan. 10 from Atlanta. D’Marcus Simonds led the Panthers with 21 points and six assists, while Jeff Thomas added 17 points. The Panthers were outrebounded by eight but forced 15 turnovers and held the Ragin’ Cajuns to just 8-of-31 three-point shooting. On the offensive end, Georgia State shot 52.5 percent from the floor and 13-of-25 (52%) from beyond the arc. They did struggle from the line, making just 14-of-24 (58.3%).

The Panthers have won five straight games and seven of eight. Simonds leads the Panthers with 18.8 points per game, while Kane Williams leads in assists (3.8), rebounds (5.6), field goal percentage (50%) and steals (2.0). On the season, Georgia State averages 77.6 points per game on 47.1 percent shooting (39.3% 3pt). They allow 73.1 points per game on 42.8 percent shooting (33.9% 3pt).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

These are pretty good squads but UL Monroe is coming off a devastating loss. That going to have a psychological effect after falling at the buzzer and playing just two days later. They are also 2-6 on the road, which doesn’t help against a 6-0 home team. Georgia State has an excellent offensive squad and they’ll be on form for this one.

Prediction: Georgia Southern

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Both teams love to push the ball and have gone over in three of the last four meetings. UL Monroe has gone over in five out of their last six games and just missed going over by two points in their last game. Georgia State has gone over in two straight. Neither team plays great defense and both shoot the three ball extremely well.
