This is a gambler’s special!  Two little schools in the Sun Belt conference playing mid-day on Saturday on ESPN +.  Georgia State’s games are watched by former Georgia State players and their family.  Coastal Carolina’s games are watched by a few more people than former Coastal Carolina Players… They have been good for several years now.  They regularly do well in conference, but have also posted great records nationally.  Yeah, most people don’t know how to spell Chanticleers on the first try… and yeah only a few of those people know that a Chanticleer is a proud and fierce rooster that dominates the barnyard… it’s from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales: "For crowing there was not his equal in all the land. His voice was merrier than the merry organ that plays in church, and his crowing from his resting place was more trustworthy than a clock. His comb was redder than fine coral and turreted like a castle wall, his bill was black and shone like a jet, and his legs and toes were like azure. His nails were whiter than the lily and his feathers were like burnished gold." --- That’s the type of thing gamblers find lucky…. Even better is knowing that the Chanticleer is 13-6 ATS when playing against a team with a losing record since 1993.

Georgia State vs Coastal Carolina Preview and Analysis


RECENT FORM

Georgia State has lost twice in conference to LA Lafayette and Appalachian State (45-16). They have beaten Georgia Southern, Texas State and Louisiana Monroe.  That blowout is important to remember. GSU is 4-5 on the season while going 6-3 ATS.  They have logged 5 Overs and 4 Unders.  They are 2-3 in road games.

Coastal Carolina has lost once in conference to Appalachian State by a field goal.  The final score was 30-27 in a hard fought game that caught the Chanticleers by surprise. CCU is 8-1 on the season while going 6-3 ATS.  They have notched 4 Overs and 5 Unders.  They are, like their namesake, undefeated at home 5-0.  Last weekend CCU covered a -16 point spread against Georgia Southern… they covered a -20 point spread  against Arkansas State… Lot’s of big spreads against small schools like -33.5, -36, -26.5, -32… all wins and covers.


OFFENSIVE ANALYSIS

GSU on offense is falling way behind the flock.  They are 100th in the FBs in pts per game 23.1, 89th in the FBS in ypg 378.6, 119th in passing yards 156.2,... yet they are pretty great running the ball where they are 13th in the FBS with 222.3 ypg.  The problem is Coastal can meet them in the running game while still putting a ball up deep to a receiver.  Coastal is balanced better.

CCU is an offensive juggernaut.  They are 6th in the FBS in points 42.6, 12th in the FBS in yards 497.3, 33rd in passing yards 268.2 per, and the coup de gras 9th in the FBS in Rush YDS 229.1 per game.

On offense the Coastal Carolina stats blows away the Georgia State stats… don’t get confused by their similar run numbers… the passing and total points skew heavily in CCU’s favor. CCU will rain receptions all over the field.

DEFENSIVE ANALYSIS

GSU is ranked 99th in the FBS on defense. They give up 424.2 yards per game and 33 touchdowns so far.  They are going to get boat raced in this one.

CCU is ranked 18th in the FBS on defense.  They give up 319.4 yards per game and only 20 touchdowns so far.  These numbers are skewed a bit if you consider they are stockpiled in the Sun Belt conference… but this is a Sun Belt matchup.

Georgia State vs Coastal Carolina Prediction

Our prediction for Saturday, November 13th, is… Coastal Carolina 35 - Georgia State 17

Coaches

Georgia State:  Shawn Elliot.  He’s been there since 2017 and it’s such a small program his phone number is on the website in case you wanna reach him.  He’s 26-29… after this loss to Coastal he will need 4 wins to get to .500.

Coastal Carolina: Jamey Chadwell.  He took over the job in 2019 and hasn’t looked back! He’s 27-18 with 1 conference title in his 2 ½ seasons.  He makes $850,000 a year.  Nice work!  Folks in Carolina all call him “Jimmy the Kid”, never to his face.  He will be looking to move up to a bigger program soon… Coastal would do well to lock him in for a few more seasons.

Weather Forecast

Mostly Sunny.  71* Humidity 55%. Wind at 7 mph.
