Seahawks vs Eagles
8:15 PM EST
Seahawks/Eagles Under 48.5 (win)
The two things both teams have in common is they can’t protect the QB as they give up a lot of sacks. The other thing both teams have in common on defense is they have a great pass rush and they create a lot of sacks. Neither QB is going to have all day to throw. Teams that have all day to throw on Seattle can pick this secondary apart, but Philadelphia does not have the offense line to do that nor do they have the receivers this year to do that either. Both offensive lines are banged up which means backups allow more sacks and the ultimate over killer in holding calls. I believe both teams will be behind the chains in a lot of their drives tonight. Take the Under.

Georgia State -2.5 over Mercer (loss)
Both teams finished 4th in their respected conferences last year. Both get the job done two different ways. It’s all offense with Georgia State and all defense with Mercer. The top two guards for Mercer from last year graduated so I think it’s going to be hard for them to keep up even with Georgia State not being that great on defense. I really like the Panthers ability to create turnovers and share the ball with each other. This team plays with a fast pace and I am just not sure the guard play for the Bears is ready for a matchup like this. Kane Williams and Justin Roberts are two players that share the ball and shoot it well for the Panthers and they should take over this game. Take Georgia State.

Pacific +5.5 over Nevada (loss)
Nevada has the big name coach in Steve Alford, but they did lose their top 5 players in overall production from last year and start this season with their backups. This team plays good defense, but the question will be how long will that hold up? The players on this roster just are not that experienced. Pacific on the other hand has a lot of experience and a lot of transfers from bigger programs. This team will miss Jahlil Tripp, but have other guards who are great at finding their teammates. Pacific has a much better bench and has a great shot at an outright win tonight. Take Pacific.
