The Liberty Flames and Coastal Carolina Chanticleers face off on Saturday in the Cure Bowl at Camping World Stadium. These two teams were supposed to face off earlier this season but COVID canceled that game so now they are getting a shot in a bowl game. 

Liberty comes into this game with a 9-1 record overall and their only loss came two games ago against NC State by a point. Liberty did deal with a COVID outbreak though, and their last game came all the way back on November 27th against UMass. On the season Liberty is averaging 38.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 19.2 points per game. The star of the show for the Liberty has been quarterback Malik Willis and coming into this game he has thrown for 2,040 yards, 20 touchdowns, and four interceptions. Liberty also has a strong rushing game putting up 223.2 yards per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers who come into this game with an 11-0 record overall. This is a team that has had big wins over Louisiana Lafayette, Appalachian State, and BYU. Coastal Carolina has also covered the spread in seven of the last nine games.

The over is 8-3 in Liberty’s last 11 games on fieldturf. Liberty is 11-5 against the spread vs. a team with a winning record. Coastal Carolina is  7-1-1 against the spread in their last 9 games overall.

Coastal Carolina is the better team, but I think Liberty is going to keep it close and this is too many points to lay with them. The Chanticleers will come away with the victory, but Liberty is going to cover this spread.
