Georgia State Vs UNC Betting Preview:
TV: ESPNU @ Noon
Georgia State: +7; O/U 64.5
UNC: -7; O/U 64.5
We head into Week 2, Chapel Hill Defense still giving up a lot of points. UNC defense is just flat out bad thus far. I certainly surprised that the line and the game total is what it is for this game. I think once again we will see UNC score a lot of points just like last week, the biggest question for them is how many points they will give up to APP State conference foe Georgia State.
For UNC with Howell gone for the NFL, they now turn to Drake Maye who has put up some wild numbers so far in the first two games and I would expect him to have another big day vs this Georgia State defense. The biggest thing that I have noticed about this UNC team is that their offense really starts clicking in the second half in the first two games. This will be a UNC team that I will be looking to bet over in their games.
For Georgia State, they are led by Senior transfer from Furman Darren Grainger. Grainger took over this Panthers offense last year and had a very solid season with them and even took this panthers team to a bowl game. Darren has the rushing upside as well. He ran the ball 13 times vs South Carolina last week and even had a TD. I think we will see this panthers team keep it close in the first half and I wouldn’t be surprised if they keep it close just like App St did last week.
Final thoughts, I think the 64.5 is fair for both teams and especially knowing that UNC will give up points early and how well their offense has looked thus far through two games. There is a lot of talent on Chapel hill offense, and I think that if their defense continues to miss wide open tackles like they have in the last two games their defense will be in for a long day. I think that Georgia state playing at home vs a weak defensive team will bring a lot of energy to this team tomorrow.
Zach’s Best Bet: Over 64.5 DK
