This is one of those conference tournament matchups where one team, Georgia State, had the better overall results this year, while the other team, Troy, had the better results in the head to head. Troy went 2-0 against Georgia State during the regular season with their most recent result coming in an impressive 83-70 win on the road against the Panthers. This isn’t the ideal matchup for Georgia State in the conference tournament, but a chance for the Panthers to prove themselves against a team they’ve had a hard time with. Troy took care of business in their conference tournament opener taking down South Alabama by a final of 69-62, and getting a win under your belt in postseason play almost always favors the lower seeded teams where the higher seeded teams get the bye. We like Tory to be a thorn in the side of the Panthers again today as they go on to cover the spread.
Troy +3 -110
