The Arkansas State Red Wolves will be looking for back to back victories when the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers come to town in week seven. Arkansas State comes off of a 43-25 win at the Georgia Southern Eagles where the team played well on both sides of the football in the second half with a 21-8 run. The Red Wolves trailed 493-381 in total yards and did not play well overall with five turnovers but fortunately the Eagles gave the ball away four times. Quarterback Justice Hansen struggled through the air in completing 12-26 for 316 yards and four touchdowns but four interceptions hurt ASU although he did hit some big plays. Warren Wand was the only Arkansas State runner of note with 61 yards on eleven touches with a pair of scores. Chris Murray led the Red Wolves receiving corps with five catches for 188 yards including 56 yard and 57 yard TD’s while Blake Mack and Omar Bayless caught 29 yard and 37 yard touchdown passes.
Over is 5-0 in Coastal Carolina last 5 games overall and over is 4-0 in Coastal Carolina last 4 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and over is 6-1 in Coastal Carolina last 7 road games. Arkansas State are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game and under is 5-0-1 in Arkansas State last 6 games following a straight up win and Arkansas State are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in October.
I don’t think the Red Wolves played well offensively in beating Georgia Southern and they still scored 43 so perhaps something on the over…
