The Georgia Southern Eagles are obviously in better form right now, but the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are better offensively and are kind of due for a home victory after some rough losses recently. Coastal Carolina has a lot of scoring depth and is one of those teams that should probably be better than its record. In a pick em spot, I'm going to give the edge to the home team, but there's better options on Thursday's card.
