In that one Coastal Carolina posted a 12-point victory. As for Georgia State, they just finished up against Charlotte. In their game the Panthers took a tough one-point loss.

Coastal Carolina kicked off their 2022 college football season versus Army. The opener went well for the Chanticleers and they managed a 38-28 win. In game two versus Gardner-Webb it was a closer 31-27 outcome but still another win for Coastal Carolina.

The Chanticleers are 18-8 ATS in their last 26 road games and 1-5-1 ATS in the last seven overall. Coastal is 1-5 ATS in their last six conference games.
Meanwhile, the Panthers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven conference games and 6-2 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Georgia State is 2-5 ATS in their last seven in September. 

PICK: I might take a stab on Georgia State here. The Panthers offense went off in the Charlotte loss, posting 602 total yards, 34 first downs, a 10-of-15 rate on third-down tries and 259 rush yards. Trouble is, Georgia State committed 11 penalties, two turnovers and allowed 501 total yards. Still, another big performance like that and I think he Panthers can stay in range.

As for Coastal Carolina, they had 504 total yards themselves but they’ve also got some things to clean up—mainly the four fumbles and the 20:54 in time of possession. The Chanticleers should post another solid effort here, though.
