Week 1 Picks

Week 1 Picks

Coastal Carolina +7 (2 units)

Coastal Carolina ML +225 (0.5 unit)

Coastal Carolina/Kansas u56.5

(see post)

Iowa State -12.5

ULL is a great G5 team, and one of the best spread darlings over the last 2 seasons.  They have to run the ball effectively to win, and with Iowa St.’s 3-3-5 scheme, they should struggle to establish their identity.  Iowa State will have a significant advantage in the trenches.  This should be the most complete offense in the Matt Campbell era.  The Cyclones are typically a team that you fade as a favorite and bet as an underdog, but they should dominate a G5 team that wants to outrush them. 

Charlotte +17

App State edged Charlotte 56-41 in 2019, but Charlotte outgained the Mountaineers 533-458 with a 24-16 advantage in first downs gained.  Both teams return their starting QBs, and many significant skill players, but App State must find a replacement for 3rd round draft pick Darrynton Evans.  While elite on defense in 2019, the Mountaineers must replace two 100 tackle LBs and 5 of their top 6.  App State is on their 3rd coach in 3 years, however, they did retain longtime assistants on defense.

Charlotte App State over 59

Army looks great this year and might win by 50 this week, but repeat after me….

I will not bet on a triple option team to win by 3 touchdowns, even if they’re playing ULM
