Coastal Carolina atGeorgia State:Three things to know

1. Three of Georgia State's four games have been decided by one score, including its most recent contest, a 36-34 win at Troy a week ago. Paced by the efforts of RB Destin Coates, the Panthers rushed for 210 yards in that game against the Trojans. Coates averages over 27 carries per game; he has logged three 100-yard efforts in as many games this season. GSU averages 237.3 yards per game on the ground (third Sun Belt).

2. Coastal Carolina has been a more balanced team on offense, and the Chanticleers rank second in the league in total defense (345 yards per game). In all five games this season and in seven of CCU's last eight games overall, the Chanticleers have held foes under 30 points.

3. Coastal Carolina HC Jamey Chadwell, a two-time FCS National Coach of the Year finalist and three-time Big South Coach of the Year, has the Chanticleers on a bit of a revenge tour this autumn. Three of the team's wins so far in 2020 were against Sun Belt opponents that beat Coastal a year ago. Georgia State would fit into those plans: The Panthers defeated CCU 31-21 last season (Oct. 12).

Coastal Carolina atGeorgia State:Odds, prediction, betting lines and picks

Prediction

Coastal Carolina 35, Georgia State 31

Money line (ML)

The lean in a vacuum is toward Coastal Carolina, but a -173 tag implies a win percentage of 63.37%. We can't slide any value in on that price. PASS.

Against the spread (ATS)

An upper body injury has Coastal QB Grayson McCall possibly being sidelined in this one. But the Chanticleers have a capable backup in QB Fred Payton who has started a dozen collegiate games, including last week's 28-18 win over Georgia Southern.

The lean is still with CCU, but it's a slight one at best. PASS, unless you can find an evenly-priced spread of -3.

Over/Under (O/U)

The best value in this game is on the total. Look for a close game with the winner scoring in the neighborhood of 35-38 points. BACK THE OVER 60.5 ( -110).
