BYU Back in the Playoff Conversation
Due to cancellations, BYU sought out this game against the No. 18 undefeated Chanticleers. Although BYU has a spotless record, many pundits believe it is not enough to get into the playoff conversation. That will all change with a win in this game. It may not be enough, but a victory here does make a statement.
BYU boasts a defense that is allowing less than 300 yards per game and they have a superstar in the making at quarterback. Zach Wilson leads the offense and leads a fierce offensive attack that is relentless behind one of the best offensive lines in the country. The Cougars have been a good bet against the spread (ATS) as chalk with a 6-2-1 ATS record as a favorite.
Line Up the Number
When the game was announced all of the reputable sportsbooks made the Cougars a 10 point favorite. That line has slightly been adjusted to 10.5, although only 52 percent of the betting is on the road team.
Counting out Coastal Carolina?
Don’t sleep on the Chanticleers. The conversation is all about BYU and they have a shot to make a statement with a win, but what about Coastal Carolina? Freshman Grayson McCall leads the way on offense with 20 touchdowns and just one interception. They play solid on defense ranking 15th by allowing 322 yards per game. They have also played a more difficult schedule and will be at home for this big game.
BYU vs Coastal Carolina Prediction
Both teams will have to adjust game plans quickly for this showdown. BYU has the added pressure of planning travel for this game. Although the Cougars have incredible leadership, this is a difficult task for anyone. The Cougars are just 1-5 ATS in the last 6 games played in December and the Chanticleers are 5-0 ATS in the last five games catching points. BYU may win, but this game is going to be very close.
