The Line: Coastal Carolina Chanticleers -8.5 -- Over/Under: 53.5
The Texas State Bobcats and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers meet in college football action from Brooks Stadium on Saturday as they close out the CFB regular season.
Texas State is 3-8 on the year so far. The Bobcats are just 1-5 in their last six games, winning versus South Alabama while falling to LA-Monroe, Arkansas State, Louisiana, Troy and App State.
In the loss to the Mountaineers, Texas State QB Tyler Vitt posted 154 yards with a TD and an INT, and Robert Brown rushed for 35 yards. Javen Banks led the receivers there on 82 yards and a TD from five grabs.
Over on the Chanticleers’ side, they’re 4-7 so far. Coastal Carolina is currently on a three-game losing streak, falling to Louisiana 48-7, Arkansas State 28-27 and LA-Monroe 45-42.
In the loss to the Warhawks, Coastal’s Fred Payton put up three TDs and 158 pass yards, while Larry Collins caught two balls for 60 yards. Torrance Marable rushed for 172 yards and two touchdowns there as well.
The Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in their last five on grass and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 after an ATS win. Texas State is 1-4 ATS in their last five in November and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.
Meanwhile, the Chanticleers are 4-0 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last five conference games. Coastal is 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and 2-7 ATS in their last nine home games.
Texas State has been wildly inconsistent on offense this year, and that’s added to a lot of their record issues so far. That said, the Bobcats did score 57 combined points versus South Alabama and Troy—but then allowed the Trojans 63 in the single game.
As for the Chanticleers, they’ve done okay on offense for the most part, but are generally hemorrhaging points on the other side. I’m not in love with this matchup on too many levels, but I’m going to go with the Bobcats on scoring potential.
