Randy’s Free Pick
Both of these teams are below average and are in terrible form right now overall. However, I'd assume Coastal Carolina has the edge at home, where it wins by an average of 10.3 points. I doubt Texas State figures things out on the road, and this team loses in the underdog role by an average of 4.5 points. Toss up game, give me the home team in Coastal Carolina.
