Louisiana definitely had the easier qualifying route to the first ever Sun Belt Championship Game. Nevertheless they get a chance to be the first Champ.
Appalachian State is sneaky good, not just Sun Belt good. Their title game might have been last week when they beat Troy to get here.
Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns
The Cajuns won four of five down the stretch to get to this point. They beat Arkansas State to start the run which is they are here instead of the Red Wolves. These teams met earlier in the season at Appalachian State and Louisiana lost by 10. That is respectable.
One thing to like about Lousiana is that they are very balanced on offense – 230ypg on the ground and 218ypg through the air. If they can be that way in this one they can stay in it.
For Louisiana to stay in this one they have to play some defense. Though I suppose it is encouraging that in their previous game against the Mountaineers they held them to just 27 points – that is a touchdown lower than their season average.
Appalachian State Mountaineers
Last week everything was on the line and the Mountaineers came up with a workmanlike win over Troy, 21-10. The only concern coming out of the game was the fact that they had 13 penalties for over 100 yards. Other than that they were in total control.
The Mountaineers are a strong running team and they just don’t make a lot of mistakes. Their defense and running game allow them to be patient and methodically wear team down. It is not flashy but it works.
App State is very good but this is a large number to cover, even at home for a team that usually doesn’t score that quickly. I am super confident they get the win but the lines here are making me look hard at the underdog.

This number is pretty big. It helps that Appalachian State is at home but still that number makes me nervous. And the total is high.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Under 58.5
I think this game is going to play out similarly to their regular season tilt which saw only 44 points in an easy App State win.
There should not be a lot of surprises in this one so it might take a little while for both teams to figure out what is working and exploit it.
