2018 Sun Belt Season Football Preview
Looking for Sun Belt Conference 2018 predictions? It should be no surprise that the same teams who have took over the conference are still in the top predictions as Arkansas State, Appalachian State, and Troy are looking to battle once again. Can the Red Wolves take it down once again? It will be another tight battle once again.

This year should feature much of the same drama as the top of the conference features many contenders.
Sun Belt Conference 2018 Odds: Arkansas State (5/4)
They are one of the front runners for a reason. They are in a East conference that is filled with easy conference games. Those games include the likes of ULM, South Alabama, and Texas State.
With the Red Wolves eating away with those wins, they jump to an easy conference title showdown with the West side.
Another key part to their success is the ability to open up plays. The Red Wolves have been known for having big-play potential schemes written up and can easily open up the playbook whenever needed.
They have a defensive front that is one of the scariest in the CFB, and are not afraid to send extra players after the quarterback.
They really do play like a firework on Saturday’s, but sometimes that same aggressive play style can come and haunt them. We have seen it before blow up in their face, but that is usually not the case.
Sun Belt 2018 Odds: Troy (9/5)
Could another ten win season be heading back to Troy once again? Well they open up the new season in probably the worst way possible as they face some non-conference top dogs.
Those games include the likes of Boise State and Nebraska. In which can easily go south for the Trojans, however they almost knocked off Clemson last year and should not be doubted in any way possible to open up the year.
Here is the main problem for the Trojans, they do not have the fire power under the quarterback spot like they have gotten the past couple of years.
Four-year starter Brandon Silvers is not out of the Trojans way as they will need to pick and choose from either Kaleb Barker or Sawyer Smith.
Sun Belt Conference 2018 Odds: Appalachian State (5/2)
One of my favorite odds to win it all, as the Appalachian State Mountaineers look to extend their championship era to third straight and reach another bowl season.
They have been one of the best in the conference, however there have been some departures on both sides of the ball that might concern those looking to bet on them.
The Mountaineers will need a new quarterback as they said goodbye to four-year starter Taylor Lamb who did great things for them.
Also the right side of the offensive line is officially gone as linemen Colby Gossett and Beanu Nunn took their talents to the NFL.
Sun Belt 2018 Odds: Georgia Southern (12/1)
The Southern Eagles may not have the talent to overtake the Sun Belt Conference, but they do have a leader that all of the players can now follow.
It was a mess for the past two seasons as Tyson Summers did not know how to run the program and create a winning atmosphere.
Last season Chad Lunsford took over the team, and the fans and players fell in love with their new leader both on and off the field.
Lunsford is an offensive minded coach, who loves the pound the run, so expect senior Wesley Fields, to get close to that 1,000 yard mark. Last season he led the team with 811 rushing yards.
Sun Belt Conference 2018 Odds
- Arkansas State: 5/4
- Troy: 9/5
- Appalachian State: 5/2
- Georgia Southern, ULM: 12/1
- Georgia State, Louisiana-Lafayette: 30/1
- South Alabama: 50/1
- Coastal Carolina, Texas State: 100/1
Sun Belt Conference: 2018 Prediction
I love the value from Appalachian State as they reach the title game once again and win it. Expect a nice offer heading towards Satterfield after another great season.
