Flames Battle-Tested Coming Into Orlando
As one of the four independent teams in college football, the Flames are battle-tested as they come into this game.
The Flames lost back-to-back games to start the season to Syracuse and Louisiana. Following five straight wins, the Flames then lost three of four, falling to Rutgers, BYU and Virginia. They finished the season strong with a 21-point win over New Mexico State.
A Strong Team This Season
The Flames love the production they have got this season from their quarterback, Stephen Calvert.
He comes into this affair with 26 passing touchdowns and 3,393 passing yards. His top target throughout the 2019 season has been Antonio Gandy-Golden, who needs just 67 yards to reach 1,400 on the season, to go with nine touchdowns.
Running back Frankie Hickson anchors the ground game with 921 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on the season.
The Flames made some news following the regular season, as they extended head coach Hugh Freeze with a multiple-year deal of $2 million per season.
Eagles Want To Run For Success
The Eagles come into the game with the eighth-best rushing offense in all of college football. The rushing attack has seen several guys play key parts.
The top statistical season for the Eagles in the run game has come from J.D. King, who has rushed 175 times for 776 yards and eight touchdowns.
A Rough Start To The Season
In the regular-season finale against Georgia State, King rushed for 107 yards and three touchdowns, while Wesley Kennedy III and Shai Werts each rushed for a touchdown.
The Eagles started the season with three losses in their first four games, falling to LSU, Minnesota, and Louisiana.
After a nice streak of wins, the Eagles fell late in the season at Troy and Arkansas State.
Our Liberty Vs. Georgia Southern Cure Bowl Betting Pick
Liberty certainly made a bowl game with smoke and mirrors. The Flames will have a tough time slowing down the running game of the Eagles.
Expect Georgia Southern to get after it on both sides of the football and win this game by double-digits.
Slowing Down The Eagles Won’t Be Easy
Liberty is going to want to play a low-scoring game, as the under is 5-1 in its last six games as an underdog. But, that won’t be an easy task to slow down the Eagles.
Look for Georgia Southern to get the ball moving and run by Liberty in this game. Betting Georgia Southern -5 is the way we are going.
