At first glance the Arizona Wildcats giving just 9.5 points at home to Georgia Southern might seem like a bit of a low line. Then again, Georgia Southern has started off the season with a 5-1 record and is one of the best shooting teams in the country. The Wildcats on the other hand have been blown outin two straight contests. Should Arizona worry less about the spread and focus on just getting a win?
Georgia Southern Eagles
Georgia Southern is off to another hot start just as they were last year in running out to 8-2 in their first 10 games of the season. There’s no secret to their success – it’s their offense. The Eagles are the nation’s top FG shooting percentage team draining buckets at a 55.2% clip through six games. Georgia Southern is averaging over 90 ppg and they’ve been held to less than 80 points just once this year.
The Eagles’ success has to be taken with a grain of salt considering they’ve been favored in 5 of 6 games to start the year. Even so, they have five players averaging in double figures led by the backcourt trio of Quan Jackson, Tookie Brown, and Ike Smith who pump in nearly 50 points a game combined.
Arizona could come out playing angry on Thursday night considering they’re reeling after huge back-to-back defeats. Granted the Wildcats were underdogs vs. both Gonzaga (74-91) and Auburn (57-73) but you would’ve thought they’d put up a little bit of a fight in the prominent Maui Classic. Both Gonzaga and Auburn shot over 53% from the field vs. Arizona which doesn’t bode well for the Wildcats vs. a Georgia Southern team that has thrived on efficient shots so far this year.
Arizona does have some advantages Thursday night, namely being at home against a Georgia Southern team that is playing their first true road game of the year. The Wildcats also boast a solid 71-66 win over Iowa State in a PK game in Hawaii. Even so, Arizona shot just 40% from the field in that win so they need to get their offense moving vs. the Eagles.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Eagles are 4-1 ATS their last 5 non-conference games
- Eagles are 4-1 ATS their last 5 overall
- Wildcats are 1-4 ATS their last 5 following a SU loss

Free Georgia Southern Eagles vs. Arizona Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
Arizona is the more talented team in this contest but where are their heads at on Thursday? The Wildcats haven’t played since 11/21 and it can be hard to get back in the swing of things after a trip to Hawaii. Georgia Southern had a home game Tuesday and has some solid momentum going right now.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Georgia Southern +9.5
The Eagles will get a lead in the first half vs. a sluggish Arizona team. Their efficient shooting will keep them in it until the very end.
