Given that the playoffs have always been comprised of 4 teams from the Power 5 conferences, it’s easy to ignore conferences that are viewed as being lesser on the scale of importance. The unfortunate thing here is that we often end up missing out on some very good football, not to mention a whole host of betting opportunities. We have decided to take a look at the Sun Belt Conference this week, as this will be the first ever season that this particular conference will be having a Championship Game.
The decision to do this may have been brought on by the fact that the conference crown has been shared in each of the last two seasons, Let’s face it, no-one likes a tie. In those last 2 seasons, it has been the Appalachian State Mountaineers who have been one of the winners. They have an outside shot at getting to the Sun Belt Conference Championship Game, but they need to win out and get some help along the way. They will be on the road to face Coastal Carolina as a 15 point favorite. The point total for this one has been set at 55 ½.

Why bet on the Appalachian State Mountaineers?The Appalachian State Mountaineers gained national prominence a few years back when they beat Michigan on the road. Since then, they have been a consistent thorn in the side of the bigger programs, including this season, when Penn State needed a late TD and overtime to take them out in Week 1. For the Mountaineers, though, it’s all about winning titles, and they have some work to do if they want to win it this year.
They are currently 3-1 in conference play and trail both Georgia Southern and Troy in the East Division. The loss to Georgia Southern last week probably sealed the fate of the Mountaineers, but they are still going to come out and do what they can to disrupt the standings. App State has been great on the road, winning 15 of their last 22 and going 5-1 ATS in their last 6.
Why bet on the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers?In terms of the Sun Belt, Coastal Carolina is already dead in the water, as they are sitting at 2-2 in the East Division, well off the pace being set at the top. While there is really very little left for them to play for, other than bowl eligibility, this team has responded very well after taking back to back losses a few weeks ago.
The Chanticleers are on a modest 2-game win streak, covering the spread in both of those victories, one of which came as an underdog. Where Coastal Carolina has come up a little short of late is in their home games, where they are just 2-5 SU and ATS in their last 7 games on home field. They have only ever played the Mountaineers once, losing that one 37-29.
