Coastal Carolina vs. Louisiana-Monroe Prediction

I’m on Coastal Carolina here. I just trust the Chanticleers more on the offensive end of the floor to be able to succeed against a ULM defense that’s been susceptible, and I just think Coastal also has a lot more scoring depth at the top than the Warhawks do. Coastal may be one and done, but I think they get that one by taking out ULM here. Give me Coastal Carolina.
