The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Arkansas State Red Wolves will meet up in college basketball action on Saturday.

Coastal Carolina enters this one with a 9-9 mark on the year. After falling in three straight games to South Alabama, Texas State and Texas Arlington, the Chanticleers have won their last two versus App State and Little Rock.

In the win over the Trojans, Coastal Carolina’s Devante Jones led the way on 21 points, three assists and four rebounds. Ajay Sanders also had a nice line on 19 points, five rebounds and two assists.

Over on the Arkansas State side, they’re 9-11 this season. The Red Wolves lost three in a row as well to Troy, Texas Arlington and Texas State, but bagged a narrow win over App State in their last outing.

In the OT win over the Mountaineers, Arkansas State’s top scorer was Ty Cockfield, with 32 points, six rebounds and four assists. Canberk Kus added 13 points with nine rebounds, and Marquis Eaton had 10 points with eight assists.

The Chanticleers are 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven following an ATS win. Coastal Carolina is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six after a straight-up win.

Meanwhile, the Wolves are 0-4 ATS in their last four Saturday games and 0-5 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss. Arkansas State is 0-6 ATS in the last six overall and 0-6 ATS in the last six versus the Sun Belt.

The Chanticleers had a little trouble with that plucky Trojans team in their last outing, and needed a comeback to ensure a one-point win. Still, it’s a victory and keeps the momentum going into this matchup.

All that said, I don’t see Coastal Carolina having an overall advantage here, as the Wolves have done fairly well at home scoring-wise this season and should be able to add to that trend here. I’m going with Arkansas State on an outright win. (That does buck the current ATS trends, so keep that in mind.)
