Louisiana vs. Coastal Carolina odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from model on 23-6 run

As Hurricane Delta blazed a path through the Gulf of Mexico last week, the Sun Belt elected to postpone Saturday’s game between the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. The game will now be played on Wednesday night at Cajun Field with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET. Both teams are undefeated and Louisiana is ranked No. 21 in the AP Top 25 entering this week after beginning its season with a dominant win at Iowa State.

However, the Chanticleers also dominated a Big 12 team with a win over Kansas in their opener and they’re coming off a 52-23 drubbing of Arkansas State on Oct. 3. The Ragin’ Cajuns are favored by 7.5 points at home in the latest Louisiana vs. Coastal Carolina odds from William Hill. The over-under for total points is set at 58.5.

Why Louisiana can cover

Louisiana rode a dominant special teams performance to a season-opening win over Iowa State, who is now back up to No. 20 in the AP Top 25 after reeling off three consecutive wins following the loss to the Ragin’ Cajuns. Chris Smith had a 95-yard kickoff return for Louisiana in that win while Eric Garror added an 83-yard punt return for a touchdown later in the game.

And after gaining only 272 yards in that win over the Cyclones, the Ragin’ Cajuns offense has come to life in the past couple weeks. Louisiana is averaging 478.5 yards of total offense per game in wins over Georgia State and Georgia Southern. Running back Elijah Mitchell had 16 carries for 164 yards and two touchdowns when he last played against Georgia State on Sept. 19 and he’s expected to be back in the lineup after missing the Georgia Southern game with COVID-19.

Why Coastal Carolina can cover

The Chanticleers have been building their program gradually under Jamey Chadwell and they made a statement by going to Kansas and beating Les Miles 38-23. Quarterback Grayson McCall was responsible for 206 yards of total offense and five touchdowns (three passing and two rushing) in the victory and he’s looked like one of the best Group of Five quarterbacks in the country thus far.

McCall is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 728 yards and nine touchdowns with just one interception through three games and is averaging a whopping 11.6 yards per passing attempt. He’s also rushed for 139 yards and those two aforementioned touchdowns and returning 1,000-yard rusher CJ Marable has 216 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns through three games.

How to make Louisiana vs. Coastal Carolina picks

SportsLine’s model is leaning over on the total as the simulations predict that Mitchell puts up nearly 120 scrimmage yards and gets into the end zone. It also says one side of the spread hit well over 60 percent of the time. You can only get the pick at SportsLine.
