The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers will try to keep up with a high-potent offensive team in the Appalachian State Mountaineers when they travel to Boone, North Carolina in a Sun Belt game on Tuesday evening at 7:30 on ESPN2 at Kidd Brewer Stadium. 

Coastal Carolina enters this game with a record of 2-3 which includes a 28-38 loss on the road against the Georgia Southern Eagles which also drops them to 0-2 in Sun Belt play this season. The Chanticleers failed to cover the 6-point spread as a road underdog in week 6 of the college football season.

Braydon Bennett led the team in rushing with 15 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown while adding two receptions for 33 yards. Sam Pinckney led the team in receiving, catching seven of ten targets for 132 yards and a touchdown.

The Appalachian State Mountaineers enter this game with a record of 3-2 following a 41-40 win on the road against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks while failing to cover the 13.5-point spread as a road favorite in week 6 of the college football season. Joey Aguilar led the team in passing, completing 27 of 39 attempts for 335 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions while rushing for 49 yards. Nate Noel led the team in rushing with 18 carries for 109 yards while adding three receptions for 16 yards. Christian Horn led the team in receiving, catching all six targets for 124 yards and two touchdowns.

BookMaker has the Appalachian State Mountaineers listed as 6.5-point favorites at home against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers on Tuesday evening in week 7 of the college football season. Appalachian State has won four of the six games all-time in the series while Coast Carolina has won two of the last three games while going 2-1 ATS in those matchups. Coastal Carolina is 3-2 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS on the road, 1-1 ATS as an underdog, and 0-2 ATS in conference games this season while the Appalachian State Mountaineers are 2-2-1 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS at home, 2-1 ATS as a favorite, and 0-2 ATS in conference games on the year.

The East Division of the Sun Belt Conference is the better division this college football season and the Mountaineers will be looking to keep pace with the other teams in the division while the Chanticleers are 0-2 in conference play. While the Mountaineers are the better team this season that can’t be said for the most recent games in the series as the Chanticleers have won two of the previous three contests and have gone 2-1 ATS in those contests. I look for Appalachian State to come away with the win but I look for this game to be tightly-contested which is why I am buying the .5 point and taking the 7 points with the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers for this matchup on Tuesday.
