  • Appalachian State gets the win
  • Bet the under on this one

Tuesday night will feature a Sun Belt matchup that could determine who wins the conference and who’s the odd man out. Appalachian State and Louisiana Lafayette are both 4-1, and they have achieved those records in a similar manner. Neither team is an offensive powerhouse that’s going to put up 60 points a game, and neither defense is going to shut down the opposing team.

The Rajun Cajuns come into Tuesday’s game with a defense that gives up 22.8 points per game and only scores 28.4. That’s not a very large margin for error, but it’s been good enough for a 4-1 record.

The Mountaineers of Appalachia are surrendering 20 points per game and scoring 35.2. Overall, the Appalachian State Mountaineers have been more dominant in their victories than Louisiana, but this matchup could shake all that up.

Appalachian State vs Louisiana Lafayette Prediction: MoneyLine

The Mountaineers should be 5-0. Their only loss came against the University of Miami in week 2 and they were within a field goal of winning that one. Mountaineer quarterback Chase Brice is off to a solid start to the season, completing 68 percent of his passes and throwing for 8 touchdowns and 1,360 yards.

A big part of their offense has been the ground game which is averaging a hair under 200 yards per game.

The Rajun Cajuns have enjoyed similar success on offense, but not to the extent of the Mountaineers. Quarterback Levin Lewis has over 1,000 yards passing and has thrown for seven touchdowns.

The ground game is averaging 168 yards per game and has accounted for nearly half of Louisiana’s offensive production.
