College Football Betting Preview: Appalachian State Mountaineers at Texas State Bobcats

Appalachian State at Texas State
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener: Appalachian State -23 O/U 47
CRIS Current: Appalachian State -23 O/U 49
Recommendation: Appalachian State

The Texas State Bobcats host the Appalachian State Mountaineers Saturday night in San Marcos, Texas. It's the Sun Belt opener for both squads and a matchup that has a strong potential to be lopsided. Over three touchdowns on the road may seem rich, but when the talent disparity is this wide, this type of margin could be reached rather quickly.

TSU head coach Everett Withers walked into a real tough spot last season and essentially "took a knee" in order to build towards the future. Things were so bad (2-10, -25.4 scoring margin vs. Sun Belt) that this year should also be labeled a "rebuild." In Week 1, TSU outgained FCS bottom feeder Houston Baptist 290-258 in an ugly 20-11 win and backed it up with a 37-3 loss at Colorado.

Appalachian State was outclassed in Week 1 vs. a much improved Georgia squad, 31-10. The Mountaineers however fired back and led Savannah State 45-0 at halftime before taking their foot off the pedal. Last season, APSU went on the road at dispatched UL-Lafayette, Georgia Southern, and New Mexico State by an average margin of 26 ppg. Those three squads combined for 11 Sun Belt wins whereas Texas State finished 0-8. And in last year's meet in Boone, NC, Appalachian State outrushed Texas State 303-14 en route to a 35-10 win.

Superior talent and the ability to dominate the line of scrimmage make this one of the more lopsided matchups you'll see this season in the Sun Belt. Lay the chalk.
