In college football betting circles, the Sun Belt Conference has certainly earned its Fun Belt nickname over the last few years. With memorable teams like App State and Coastal Carolina providing plenty of entertainment on weekdays and weekends alike, this league is always worth keeping an eye on. Here, we look at the Sun Belt championship betting odds and break down the field in this conference in 2023.
Sun Belt Conference Odds
Sun Belt Conference Odds Preview
There are two teams left with a chance to win the Sun Belt. Those teams are the Troy Trojans and App State Mountaineers. Troy is the favorite to win the conference at this point, as they are near-touchdown favorites over App State. But these teams have yet to face off this season, so we do not have any frame of reference in determining which team will claim the conference championship.
While Troy is the favorite to win this league, App State has a win under its belt this year that proves they are more than capable of winning this conference title tilt. They beat James Madison on the road earlier in the year, after College Gameday spent that day at James Madison. If the Mountaineers could do that, they could certainly beat Troy in this game as an underdog as well.
It is also worth noting that the best team in the Sun Belt is a team that is not eligible to win this conference in 2023. James Madison has transitioned from FCS football to the FBS and the Sun Belt. That makes them ineligible to win this conference in 2023, but they went 11-1 this year and they ended up outperforming all of the championship-eligible teams in this league as they lost just one conference game and are the only ranked team in this conference going into bowl season.
Sun Belt Conference Football Betting & Handicapping
The Sun Belt Conference was tough to call this season. With so many teams that had a chance to win this conference going into the year, the week to week action in this league was some of the most exciting in all of college football.
In general, there is one unique component to Sun Belt football that bettors should be sure not to overlook. This league features several mid-week games for teams in this conference. Therefore, being able to deliver on short rest is more important in this league and the MAC than the other conferences in the country.
