Sun Belt Week 1 predictions
Well, I assume at least the non-conference games are pretty much set unless a school has a really bad outbreak.

Lines are calculated from the ESPN FPI.

Thursday 9/3:
South Alabama @ Southern Miss (USM 8.5 point favorite)

Saturday 9/5
Arkansas State @ Memphis (Memphis 13.0 point favorite)
SMU @ Texas State (SMU 11.5 point favorite)

Three games that aren't really critical for the league non-conference but would be nice to win.

USM 27-17
Memphis 49-34
SMU 38-20

RE: Sun Belt Week 1 predictions
I wonder how Vegas will handle the lines if an insider gets wind of a COVID outbreak of critical players (o-line or QBs) and bets the house before they change the line. Should be interesting.

I would imagine it would be difficult for any team, especially a G5 team, to overcome having their entire o-line miss a game due to being in quarantine.

I think the SBC goes winless this weekend.

There would all be great games to win against regional opponents.

Imagine if the Sun Belt went 3-0...

Could happen... who would've thought we would beat Tennessee, North Carolina, and Kansas in a 3-week span last year?

That would be awesome. I full of optimism once again for the Bobcats. Maybe this is the year they turn it around. Maybe.

All of the SBC's games this week are winnable but they all will require the SBC team to upset the opponent. I think we can take at least 1 of the three with stAte over Memphis being the one I think we will win.

And as you know by now that you were right about SBC taking one of the 3 games played, but you picked the wrong team.04-chairshot
