Arkansas State vs. Texas State
Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 6:01 PM (Centennial Bank Stadium)
ARST -13 O/U 60
The Texas State Bobcats (2 - 4, 1 - 1 CONF) are on the road this week to square off against the Arkansas State Red Wolves (3 - 4, 1 - 2 CONF). Arkansas State will be hosting this game at the Centennial Bank Stadium in Jonesboro, AR. Texas State comes into this matchup having just been drilled by UL Monroe. Arkansas State will be looking to bounce back from their own bad loss against UL-Lafayette.
The Texas State Bobcats take the field in this game with a team scoring 19 PPG on offense. Texas State has struggled all season long to create consistent offense due to their lack of a running game. Texas State is only averaging 83 YPG on the ground while surrendering 29 PPG on the defensive side of the ball. Look for Texas State's QB Gresch Jensen (1,291 yards, 5 TDs, 6 INTs) to be the most important player on the field in this game.
Arkansas State will be looking to get off to a hot start. Arkansas State is scoring 32 PPG on offense while surrendering 38 PPG to opposing teams on defense. The Arkansas State Red Wolves are paced by the play of exciting QB Layne Hatcher (1,095 yards, 10 TDs, 6 INTs). The Red Wolves like to air the ball out when they can, which tends to create mismatches down the field. Our player to highlight in this game is wideout Omar Bayless (53 catches, 993 yards, 10 TDs).
The Bobcats are not that good offensively but face a horrible Red Wolves defense. Look for that to continue to be an issue for the Red Wolves in this game as it is a close game, but one that the Red Wolves have the offense to overcome. We like Arkansas State to defeat Texas State. Final Score Prediction, Arkansas State wins, but fails to cover 40 - 30.
