The Georgia Panthers (2-4, 1-1 Sunbelt) Visit Boone, NC, to beat Appalachian mountain climbers (3-3, 1-2) Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN2). Below, we analyze Tibiko Sport Book lines around Georgia vs. Appalachianmake our expert College football picks and predictions.
Coach Sean Elliott and the Georgia State team struggled out of the gate with a 0-4 score. But they then won the Army on October 31-14 and defeated visiting South Georgia October 41-33 before coming close to farewell last week. The Panthers hope this will be the start of a successful second half of the season.
The Appalachian State is 2-2 after a shocking then-no. 6 Texas A&M 17-14 on the road on Sept. 10. This was followed by the Mountaineers with a thrilling 32-28 victory over visiting Troy but then lost at home to James Madison from September 32-28. What’s worse. The Mountaineers lost as favorites to win by 19 points in the next game, falling at Texas 36-24 Oct. 8 before being knocked out last week.
The Sun Belt both need this game to make things right as they continue the conference portion of their seasons.

Snapshots and forecasts for the state of Georgia in the Appalachian State
Appalachian State 45, Georgia State 37
While Appalachia is 8-0 at all times versus Georgia and that score should be improved to 9-0, -370 juice is too high and not worth the risk.
Georgia State +9.5 (-107) is the play.
Appalachian State has played games in many fashions this season. To North Carolina, she lost in the opening game to a high-score thriller 63-61. That match was followed by a remarkable victory at Texas A&M.
Whether it’s scoring low points or a penalty shootout, the Mountaineers play games closely. Another close match is looming in this Sun Belt match. A spread of 10.5 pips is too much.
Take Georgia State +9.5 (-107) …but keep in mind that the Appalachian state is 6-2 Austrian shillings in this chain the whole time.
More than 58.5 (-115) is mine favorite toys in this game.
Both teams can score. Georgia state is 3-3 O/U and Appalachian state 4-2.
The Over cashed out tickets for 3 of the last 4 meetings between these two. It was the only match that App State won 17-13 in 2020.
Georgia averages 29.8 points per game and produces 33.3 PPGs.
The Appalachian State scored 35.2 PPG and surrendered 28.8 PPG.
I expect More than 58.5 (-110) to be an easy bet.
