Win Division (+615), Win Conference (+1650)
SSA Model Pick: Conference (Low Confidence)
The Eagles are coming off of a disastours 2-10 season which saw Tyson Summers fired after 6 games. But with 18 starters back and now under the direction of Chad Lunsford, the Eagles have to be taken seriously in the Sun Belt. While it is unlikely that the Eagles will take the conference, at +1650 there is limited value in them as a dark horse.
Win Total Analysis
5.5 wins (-125/105)
SSA Model Pick: Over (High Confidence)
If our model thinks that Georgia Southern has a shot to win the conference you know our model thinks they’ll go over 5.5 wins. Under the direction of Willie Fritz this team won 9 and 8 regular season games respectively in ’14 and ’15. Lunsford will have the Eagles looking much more like those ’14 and ’15 teams as opposed to the ’16 and ’17 squads. Our model call for 6.4 wins, almost an entire win over the Southpoint line.
