The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and Georgia State Panthers face off on Thursday in a Week 4 college football showdown at Turner Field. When these two teams faced in November 2021 it was Georgia State that secured the 42-40 victory. 

Coastal Carolina comes into this game with a perfect 3-0 record having knocked off Army, Garner, Webb, and Buffalo. The Chanticleers are averaging 35.7 runs per game, while their defense is giving up 27 points per game. In the last game against Buffalo, Coastal Carolina scored 38 points and that was enough to secure the victory. Grayson McCall completed 16 of his 24 passes for 251 yards and three touchdowns. CJ Beasley rushed nine times for 89 yards and one touchdown. The top receiver caught five passes for 103 yards. 

On the other side of this matchup is Georgia State, who sits with an 0-3 record, but the last two games have been close. In the last game against Charlotte, the offense scored 41 points, but the defense gave up 42 points and that led to the defeat. Under center for Georgia State is Darren Grainger, and he completed 22 of his 34 passes for 343 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. Tucker Gregg rushed 23 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns. In the last game, the defense really didn’t look good very good, and that is going to need to be improved upon in a big way in this game. 

Coastal Carolina is 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven games. Georgia State is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven conference games. The under is 5-0 in Coastal Carolina’s last five road games. The road team is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between the two teams. 

Georgia State has been more competitive in the last two games, but their defense has been an issue, and I expect that is going to let them down in this game. In the last game, Georgia State gave up 42 points, and Coastal Carolina will score at least that in this game. This game is going to be an easy victory for Coastal Carolina. Back Coastal Carolina against the spread.
