Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Coastal Carolina vs. UL Lafayette
Saturday, September 22, 2018 7:00 PM
Play: Point Spread: 3.0/-105 Coastal Carolina
Sun Belt Conference action opens for Coastal Carolina and Lafayette an we give the edge to the Chanticleers who should dominate the line of scrimmage. They opened the season with an expected blowout loss against South Carolina but they bounced back with an upset win at home over UAB and then trounced Campbell last week in a game that was moved up to Wednesday because of the hurricane. That is a significant edge as Coastal Carolina has the benefit of three extra days of rest and preparation. The Chanticleers are averaging 253.3 ypg on 5.1 ypc and will face a Cajuns defense that is allowing 239.0 ypg on 5.8 ypc so they will be able to run at will. Louisiana is coming off a blowout loss at Mississippi St. which came after a bye week following a win over Grambling. The defense has struggled as a whole as they have only three starters back from the team that allowed 493.0 ypg and 40.0 ppg last season. A whole new coaching staff is in place so the early struggles are not surprising and as good as this team has been over the years, Louisiana is just 10-8 at home over he last three-plus seasons with four of those wins coming against FCS opponents. The Cajuns are 0-4 ATS in their last four games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game and fall into a negative situation where we play on road teams after gaining 225 or more rushing yards in two straight games going up against an opponent after being outrushed by 125 or more yards last game. This situation is 49-17 ATS (74.2 percent) over the last five seasons. Play (375) Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
