Buffalo Bulls
Point Spread Pick
Coastal Carolina Win -13.5

Coastal Carolina and Buffalo were two of the best teams hailing from the Group of 5 in 2020. To their credit, the Chanticleers have picked up right where they left off this season, dominating The Citadel and Kansas to start off the year 2-0. However, the Bulls are heading into this non-conference matchup fresh off a drubbing at the hands of a much-maligned Nebraska team in Lincoln. Buffalo’s offense averaged an EPA per play of below zero, and 4.5 yards per play for the game, but the Bulls failed to capitalize on extended drives once they crossed midfield. The bigger issue was on the defensive side, where Buffalo allowed 234 yards on the ground to the Cornhuskers and couldn’t get off the field when they needed to. Stopping the run won’t get any easier against Coastal Carolina, as the Chanticleers have rushed for over 200 yards in each of their first two contests to start the campaign. The tandem of Grayson McCall and Reese White won’t make things easy for Buffalo’s defense either, and it remains to be seen if the Bulls will be able to generate enough offense to keep up with the Chanticleers.     

Coastal Carolina should be the favorites in the Sun Belt this season, and there is a reason why this team has a shot at a New Year’s Six bowl. The Chanticleers are well-coached, experienced and more importantly, sporting a 9-2-1 ATS record in their last 12 games, plus a 5-1 ATS mark in their last 6 road games as a favorite. Lay the points with Coastal Carolina.

Game Totals Pick
Over 57.5

Coastal Carolina can either beat its opponents with quick-strike explosive plays down the field, or lengthy drives that focus on wearing out the defense. In either case, the drives usually end in touchdowns, and don’t expect that trend to stop here. Nebraska put up nearly 550 yards of total offense and averaged 43.85 yards per drive against Buffalo, and came away with only 28 points. That speaks more to the Cornhuskers’ ineptitude than the Bulls’ defensive prowess.

The Chanticleers should be able to finish drives more efficiently, and their defense is certainly liable to give up a few chunk plays on the other side of the ball as well. A final scoreline with both teams hitting at least 24 points is well within reason. Take the over.
