The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and Texas State Bobcats meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Strahan Coliseum.

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers look for another win after winning five of their last six games. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are averaging 75.2 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 72.4 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Zac Cuthbertson is averaging 18.6 points and 2.6 assists while Devante Jones is averaging 11.8 points and 3.2 rebounds. Ebrima Dibba is dishing 4.4 assists and Tyrell Gumbs-Frater is grabbing 1.7 rebounds. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are shooting 40.7 percent from beyond the arc and 69.1 percent from the free throw line. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are allowing 31 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.9 rebounds per game. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers have split their last six road games.

The Texas State Bobcats look for another victory after winning six of their last eight games. The Texas State Bobcats are averaging 72.8 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 66.3 points on 41.6 percent shooting. Nijal Pearson is averaging 18.2 points and 5.2 rebounds while Tre'Larenz Nottingham is averaging 14 points and 2.5 assists. Eric Terry is grabbing 3.5 rebounds and Alex Peacock is dishing 2.5 assists. The Texas State Bobcats are shooting 35.6 percent from beyond the arc and 62.6 percent from the free throw line. The Texas State Bobcats are allowing 30.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.4 rebounds per game. The Texas State Bobcats have won five of their last seven home games.

The Chanticleers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Sun Belt and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Bobcats are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The Chanticleers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Bobcats last 5 home games. The under is 10-4-1 in Chanticleers last 15 games following a ATS loss.

The Texas State Bobcats already beat the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers by four points on the road this season, a game in which they allowed just 39.6 percent shooting and forced 14 turnovers. Coastal Carolina is a solid 8-4 ATS this season as an underdog and 9-4 ATS on the road. However, the Texas State Bobcats are a consistent team that plays well on both sides of the ball and could very well be in the big dance this season. Unless the spread is outrageous, I'm not trying to bet against the Texas State Bobcats. I'll eat the reasonable chalk.

Texas State -6
