Coastal Carolina vs Louisiana Betting Prediction

I expect Coastal Carolina is going to find success here. Coastal Carolina on the season is averaging 73.8 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Louisiana’s defense hasn’t been exactly great and they are going to really struggle to defend here. They are giving up 71.3 points and they are going to give up that at least here. Back Coastal Carolina against the spread.
