Georgia State vs. Louisiana odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Georgia State 67, Louisiana 61

Money line

GEORGIA STATE (-145) has the experience to get it done and get back to the NCAA Tournament. Louisiana (+120) has been red-hot during this tournament after finishing the regular season with a sub-.500 record. But the Panthers took care of the Cajuns in both meetings, and they’ll be able to get it done in this neutral-site affair to punch their ticket to the Big Dance.

Against the spread

GEORGIA STATE -2.5 (-110) is worth playing against the number. The Panthers are an impressive 7-1-1 ATS across the past nine games overall, including that most recent meeting with Louisiana +2.5 (-110) Feb. 25. The Cajuns are just 4-9 ATS across the previous 13 games overall despite getting hot in the SBC Tourney.

Over/Under

The UNDER 136.5 (-110) cashed in each of the two regular-season meetings between these teams. The Under is 3-1 in the past four games for the Ragin’ Cajuns, including the regular-season finale against the Panthers. Meanwhile, the Under is 15-3 in the previous 18 games overall for Georgia State, including a 12-0 run from Dec. 14 to Feb. 12.
