Arkansas State’s tripped up offensively this season, but there’s no better get right spot on their schedule than a date with ULM. On the other hand, the Warhawks have remained competitive lately as surprising as that is to say. You have two teams that don’t play a lick of defense for the most part and I think this is going to be a spot where we do see both offenses come alive. I’m not saying ULM wins outright, but don’t be surprised if the Warhawks have 25-30 points once again against a porous Arkansas State defense. Give me the over in this one.
