The Arkansas State Red Wolves are 18-16 (11-7) this season after they lost to James Madison by a score of 91-71 in their last game. Arkansas State has won eight of their last ten games and they finished fourth in the Sun Belt standings. The Red Wolves don’t have many quality wins, but they played a very tough non-conference schedule that should help them in this game. Arkansas State is scoring 78.7 points per game with 38.2 rebounds per game and 14.5 assists per game, while allowing 77.1 points against per game this season. Taryn Todd is averaging 12.6 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game, and 2.5 assists per game. Arkansas State is shooting 44.1% from the field, 70.4% on free throws, and 34.9% on three pointers this year. 

Bethune Cookman Preview

The Bethune Cookman Wildcats are 17-16 (11-7) this year after they lost to Grambling by a score of 65-53 in the SWAC Tournament. Bethune Cookman has won five of their last seven games, with both losses coming against Grambling. The Wildcats went 11-7 in conference play, which was tied for fifth in the SWAC standings. Bethune Cookman also doesn’t have much to show for quality wins, but they didn’t play a very tough non-conference. The Wildcats are scoring 72.5 points per game with 33.7 rebounds per game and 12.2 assists per game, while giving up 72.2 points against per game this year. Jakobi Heady is averaging 15.3 points per game, 4.4 rebounds per game, and 1.2 assists per game.

Arkansas State vs Bethune Cookman Betting Prediction

Bethune Cookman comes into this matchup playing pretty well over the last few weeks and they had a pretty successful conference season. The Wildcats last two losses came against Grambling, who won the SWAC Tournament. Arkansas State was also 11-7 in conference play and they are scoring over 78 points per game this season. The Red Wolves should be able to score plenty of points, but their defense is a mess, allowing over 77 points against per game. I do think Arkansas State will get the win, but I can’t lay this amount of points with their defense. Take Bethune Cookman with the points here.
