The Arkansas State Red Wolves are a below average team that's getting worse by the week, and don't expect things to change on the road, where they lose by an average of 11.6 points. Southern Mississippi is the team to beat in the conference, and it covers numbers at home, where it also wins by an average of 20 points and holds teams to 40 percent shooting. Give me a home beat down.
