Coastal Carolina is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games and 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record. Texas State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 home games.

I’ve been as high on Coastal as anybody this season, and I was also on the right side of that pick-six late against App State so the Chanticleers have been very nice to me this season. However, this just screams letdown for Coastal after such a massive win over App State. I’m not saying the Chants lose outright, but this is a ton of points to lay on the road against a Texas State team that’s covered numbers against SMU and Boston College to name a few, so the Bobcats have been alright ATS and this is also Texas State’s last game of the season, so you can expect everyone to leave everything out on the field for Texas State. I’ll take my chances with the Bobcats and the points in this one.
