College football's Week 4 begins with our Georgia State vs. Coastal Carolina prediction based on the best college football odds. Are you ready for a shootout?

Two strong passing attacks collide Thursday night as Georgia State and Coastal Carolina kick off to open Week 4 on the college football gridiron.

For Georgia State, it hasn’t faced a defense of Coastal’s caliber yet. However, it has already shown it can score points in bunches on the road.

Does the early movement on the total take a push for points out of play this week, or do we still see a path to a shootout? Our Shane Jackson is targeting a potentially lower-scoring game with his college football player props for Week 4.

To help start your college football Week 4 predictions, here is our best Georgia State vs. Coastal Carolina prediction and our college football picks (odds via our best college football betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Georgia State vs. Coastal Carolina prediction: Week 4

Over 62.5 (-110 via DraftKings, FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐

Georgia State ranks 19th in FBS in scoring average at 38.0 points per game through three weeks. Despite a relatively lackluster schedule that has allowed the Panthers to rack up their impressive numbers, ESPN’s Football Power Index credits Georgia State for the 28th-ranked offensive efficiency in the nation.

It helps that we’ve seen the Panthers do it once on the road, scoring 41 in a win at Charlotte. Coastal’s 38th-ranked defensive efficiency will be a challenge, but QB Darren Grainger seems to have the chops to get it done against that unit after his 466 passing yards and four total touchdowns paced Georgia State in that Week 3 win.

Georgia State’s proclivity in passing should be needed in a game the Panthers aren’t expected to win. Their 99th-ranked defensive efficiency is going to struggle against Chanticleers QB Grayson McCall, who held his own at UCLA Week 1 outside of a couple of interceptions. McCall seemed to learn from that environment, thriving in recent weeks against defenses who compare similarly in the metrics to Georgia State.

Coastal Carolina scoring 40 points in this game wouldn’t come as a surprise and Georgia State has the passing offense to pile up numbers as they chase the game through the air in likely a losing effort.

Georgia State vs. Coastal Carolina best odds

DraftKings, FanDuel (-110)

Over 62.5Over 62.5Over 63Over 63Over 63

After opening at 60.5, we’re seeing this total level out between 62.5 and 63 at our best sports betting apps. Attack the Over at DraftKings and FanDuel where you don’t have to pay a premium on the odds to get the line at 62.5. 

BetMGM, Caesars, and bet365 offer the same standard -110 odds, but with the number at 63, making those locations better spots for Under bettors.

Both offenses are efficient enough to score in this matchup, so we like the Over up to six points as a three-star recommendation.
