Saturday, December 15th brings you the Camellia Bowl, brought to you by Raycom Media, as the Georgia Southern Eagles, and Eastern Michigan Eagles travel to Alabama to faceoff live at the Crampton Bowl in Montgomery.
Both teams were winners in their regular season finales, as Georgia Southern beat Georgia State 35-14, and Eastern Michigan beat Kent State 28-20.
Georgia Southern Eagles
Georgia Southern did a good enough job navigating their Sun Belt schedule to finish third in the conference, and good enough for the invite to the Camellia Bowl. They finished strong, winning their last two contests in stunning fashion.
Averaging just over 31 points a game this year, and 344 yards per game, they will definitely have their hands full with this Eastern Michigan team who put up nearly 400 yards per game on the year. The Eagles (GASO) relied heavily on their ground game to earn their nine wins on the year, and I would expect them to try and get the ground game rolling early in this one.
Georgia Southern racked up 381 yards in their last game against Georgia State, with 276 of those coming on the ground. Their defense held the Panthers to only 94 rushing yards on 32 carries. I would say their only downfall in the game was that they allowed the Panther to go 2-2 on fourth down conversions.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
Eastern Michigan played well enough to earn the fourth best record in the Mid-American Conference this year, and a second place finish in the West Division. They finished the season on a three game winning streak that helped put them into the coveted 6 win range, and earned them a spot in this years Camellia Bowl.
Coming into this game with a season average of 27.5 points per game, they rode their passing game most of the year, and will try to get it done one more time against Georgia Southern on Saturday. The Eagles averaged nearly 229 passing yards per game this year, and they held their opponents to only 22 points a game.
In their last game against Kent State, they earned 376 total yards, but it was their running game that got the job done in that one, 237 yards on 44 carries. They would be smart to go that route once again vs. Georgia Southern, as they give up an average of 144 yards per game on the ground.

Free Camellia Bowl NCAA Football Pick
Neither of these two teams really lit up the score board this season, so we could be looking at a fairly low scoring game, hence the betting total being set so low early in the week.

With a one point spread, this game is nearly a pick ’em, so keep that in mind when you place your bets.
With that said, I say take Georgia Southern to win the game, and for them to cover the spread. Take the OVER as well, as 48 points is not a lot, even for these two low scoring football teams.
