Coastal Carolina at South Alabama odds, lines, picks and predictions
Coastal Carolina 30, South Alabama 20
Coastal Carolina (-700) will cost you seven times your potential return. That's just too risky on the road against a team fighting for bowl eligibility.
PASS and look to the spread instead.
SOUTH ALABAMA +15.5 (-112) is a great play at home against Coastal Carolina. The Jaguars are fighting for bowl eligibility, and they're down to their last chance. They've gone 0-for-3 in the past three tries at clinching that magical sixth win. They won't get the W here either, but expect them to give a great effort and keep it within two scores.
The UNDER 56.5 (-112) is the best play on the board. The Under is 4-0 in the past four on the road for CCU, while going 4-1 in the past five against teams with a losing record.
For USA, the Under has connected in five straight against teams with a winning record, while going 7-2 in the past nine home games. The Jaguars also have hit the Under in seven of the past 10 as underdogs, too.
