Appalachian State vs UL Lafayette 12/4/21 Betting Prediction
Appalachian State lost just 2 games this season and one of these losses came against a ranked opponent. The Mountaineers have won 6 games consecutively and have shown what a great defense they have. They are allowing just 18.9 points per game while the offense is scoring almost twice the points they’re allowing- 36.1 points per game.
UL Lafayette lost their first game of the season against Texas and then went on to beat each of their 11 opponents. The Ragin’ Cajuns also have a great defense, allowing just 18.5 points per game. Their offense mainly relies on rushing the football as the team is averaging 192.3 rushing yards per game. QB Levi Lewis has trouble being consistent and if he had improved his game, UL Lafayette would’ve even been better.
Both teams like to rush the football and this will most probably determine the game’s winner. I expect Appalachian State to run the football better because they will face the weaker rush defense. UL Lafayette allows 142.9 rushing yards per game while Appalachian State allows just 117.5 rushing yards per game.
