The Appalachian State Mountaineers and the Charlotte 49ers meet in week 2 college football action from Jerry Richardson Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday evening.

The Appalachian State Mountaineers will look to bounce back after narrowly pulling off a huge upset, 11 years to the day that they shocked Michigan, by falling 45-38 in overtime against Penn State in their regular season opener. Zac Thomas threw for 270 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception on 25 of 38 passing, while also rushing for a touchdown and 43 yards on 15 carries. Jalin Moore added a team-high 88 rushing yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, while Corey Sutton recorded a team-high 6 catches and 87 yards receiving. Malik Williams added 66 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns. Darrynton Evans opened the scoring for App State with a 100-yard kick return touchdown for the Mountaineers’ special teams unit. Demetrius Taylor logged the Mountaineers’ lone sack while Jordan Fehr, Clifton Duck and Tae Hayes each added a team-high 5 tackles in the win.

Charlotte vs. Appalachian State - 9/8/18 College Football Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Charlotte 49ers will look to build on a solid 34-10 win over Fordham to start their 2018 regular season. Chris Reynolds threw for 267 yards and a touchdown on 13 of 20 passing, while Benny LeMay led the Charlotte ground attack with 135 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns on 25 carries. Victor Tucker led Charlotte’s receiving corps with more than half of the team’s receptions, logging 7 catches for 127 yards and a touchdown while LeMay added another 3 receptions for 83 receiving yards out of the backfield. Defensively, the 49ers recorded a 26-yard pick-six thanks to Juwan Foggie to cap off the victory, while Charlotte’s D combined for 4 sacks and Ben Deluca, Alex Highsmith and the aforementioned Foggie each had a team-high 3 tackles.

Appalachian State is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a loss while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record. Charlotte is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 home games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games. 

Points with a home dog is always tempting for me, but Charlotte had a good performance against an FCS team in Fordham, while App State nearly took down a top-10 team in the country. The Mountaineers left an indelible mark on a lot of folks after their performance against Penn State so while the line may be steep for a road team, Appalachian State played tough in one of the nation’s toughest environments so Charlotte should be a much easier task and as such I’ll lay the points with the Mountaineers here.
