The Chanticleers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog, 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games on grass and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 home games. The over is 4-1 in Red Wolves last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Chanticleers last 7 games as an underdog.
The Arkansas State Red Wolves have had a ton of time off between games and while that would usually concern me, we're taking about a club that came out swinging and competed with a good Memphis team on the road and upsetter Kansas State. Impressive start for Arkansas State. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers beat Kansas on the road and has shown some promise on the offensive end through two games. However, it's hard not to favor what Arkansas State has done up to this point, and the Red Wolves have had success on the road dating back to last season.
I'll eat the small chalk with Arkansas State.
