What to Know
The Troy Trojans won both of their matches against the App. State Mountaineers last season (68-53 and 67-61) and are aiming for the same result Saturday. The Trojans are staying on the road to face off against Appalachian State at 4 p.m. ET Jan. 14 at Holmes Convocation Center. Troy should still be feeling good after a win, while Appalachian State will be looking to get back in the win column.
While not quite a landslide, the game between Troy and the Georgia State Panthers on Thursday was still a pretty decisive one as Troy wrapped it up with a 65-53 victory on the road.
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for the Mountaineers as they fell 67-65 to the Georgia Southern Eagles on Thursday.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Troy is expected to win a tight contest. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Appalachian State's defeat took them down to 9-9 while Troy's victory pulled them up to 12-6. We'll see if Appalachian State can steal Troy's luck or if Troy records another win instead.
