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.

Women earn more and are more likely to have jobs when Democrats run the state legislature

Our research shows that the Democrats have delivered increases in economic gender equality. More precisely, our study shows that when Democrats control state legislatures, women’s income, wages and unemployment all improve substantially, relative to those of men.

Here’s how we did our research

To assess whether Democratic or Republican control of state legislatures affects gender inequality in the workplace, we tracked male and female wages, income, poverty and employment in each state annually for a little over three decades. We used data from the census’s Annual Social and Economic Supplement of the Current Population Survey. We then looked to see if women were catching up to men faster when Democrats controlled the levers of state power then when Republicans did. Further, we employed two statistical techniques — regression discontinuity and difference-in-difference analysis — that allow us to isolate the effect of party control from other factors.

In the first analysis,

Sei Young Kim has late birdie run to take Women’s PGA lead

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) — Sei Young Kim ignored the manually operated leaderboards dotted around Aronimink as she started to rally her way into contention.

“I was in a good momentum, so I just wanted to ride on that,” Kim said.

By the time she finished sinking birdie after birdie en route toward matching a record round, Kim could afford a peek at the board: Her name was on top.

Kim birdied five of the final six holes as darkness fell Friday at Aronimink for a 5-under 65 and the second-round lead in the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

The 27-year-old South Korean closed with a 6-under 29 on the front nine. She dropped early strokes on Nos. 11 and 12 and made her lone first-nine birdie on the par-5 16th.


“When we entered the front nine, the wind kind of slowed down and it was kind of easier to attack
