Appalachian State was able to pull out the win on Thursday, however, Coastal Carolina is the better team here and have been outstanding at home this season, posting an 8-2 record with wins South Carolina & Wofford. Appalachian State is just 1-5 on the road this season and as I think Coastal Carolina’s defense gives the Mountaineers a bunch of trouble in this one, I think the Chanticleers do enough in this one to cover this home spread.
