Arkansas State is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games on turf and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games. The under is 4-0 in Arkansas State’s last 4 road games. Texas State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record. The under is 5-0 in Texas State’s last 5 games.
Texas State has really struggled this season and has played very poorly on defense. Arkansas State has played great in conference play, but will be on the road here. I expect Arkansas State to put up a lot of points in this game as Texas State hasn’t been able to get enough stops to be competitive.
