This is truly the degenerate special, tonight we have been blessed with a matchup between the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Campbell Fighting Camels.
Coastal Carolina (-28.5) coming off a thrashing of the Jayhawks in front of their typical home crowd in prime time last week, enters the game as a heavy favorite. Grayson McCall looked pretty impressive with his arm and feet vs. the Jayhawks and the defense was stout and forced numerous turnovers. The offense looked pretty sharp but were given excellent field positions due to turnovers.
Campbell enters tonight in a familiar position they were in last week when they were four touchdown underdogs to Georgia Southern. Campbell is lead by a fun QB, Hajj Malik-Williams who can spin it and use his legs a bit.
Weather appears to be a bit of a factor with wind and rain in the forecast. I believe both teams will look to establish the run, and both QB’s are capable of helping out. In a game with bad weather and both teams likely to run a bit more than usual I think it will be harder for the favorite to pull away.
The Pick- Campbell +28.5. Getting more than four scores is huge so I’d shop for lines. As far as the total of 60 I would lean under but personally won’t be touching it.
