Coastal Carolina at Appalachian State odds, lines, picks and predictions
Coastal Carolina 41, Appalachian State 27
COASTAL CAROLINA (-220) heads into this rivalry game looking to keep its record unblemished. This is a little over my normal cut-off for a money line wager, but it isn't a terrible price if you just want to bet the Chanticleers straight up and not bother with the points, especially on the road.
COASTAL CAROLINA -5.5 (-112) has been on fire offensively, as QB Grayson McCall has thrown for 1,478 passing yards with 14 touchdowns and just one interception through six games, while also running for two scores. CCU has covered three straight, and five of six overall - they're on quite the roll.
Appalachian State is a mess and coming off an embarrassing loss. It remains to be seen if it can turn things around, even at home.
OVER 61.5 (-107) is a strong play based on Coastal's outstanding offensive output. While the Chants have allowed just 29 total points across the past three games, and the Under is 3-1 in their past four outings overall, you can expect the Mountaineers to be better at home as they rebound from one of their worst games in decades. They'll put up points in front of the home faithful, it just won't be enough to win.
