Appalachian State comes into this game with a 5-3 record overall, and they have won two games in a row. In the last game against Robert Morris, the defense was elite, giving up only three points, and that led to the 39 point victory. Chase Brice had a big game, completing 17 of his 23 passes for 185 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. Nate Noel rushed five times for 88 yards. Appalachian State is averaging 36.88 points, while their defense is giving up 24.1 points per game. Usually, the Mountaineers are known for their defense, but this year it’s been the offense that has led them to success.
On the other side of this matchup is Coastal Carolina, who sits with a 7-1 record, but they have gone 3-4-1 against the spread. In the last game against Marshall, the defense was elite, giving up only 13 points, and that led to the nine-point victory. Quarterback Grayson McCall completed 13 of his 24 passes for 121 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. On the season, Coastal Carolina is averaging 31.8 points while their defense is giving up 27.3 points per game. In this game, Coastal Carolina is going to need the defense to be strong to really take the pressure off the offense.
The Mountaineers are 0-7 against the spread in their last 7 games following a straight-up win. The Over is 9-2 in Chanticleers' last 11 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
The wrong team is favored in this game. McCall is having a big season for Coastal Carolina, and the Mountaineers defense isn’t as strong as in years past. Look for Coastal Carolina to find plenty of offense against Appalachian State, and that will be enough for Coastal Carolina to get the job done. Back Coastal Carolina to cover the spread. It’s also a lean with the over to cash.
