Arkansas State vs Appalachian State Free Betting Pick From Handicapper Ryan Worden
After last Thursday night’s wild Sun Belt matchup featuring Arkansas State we may be in for another wild one tonight. Arkansas State beat Georgia State 59-52 last Thursday and showed why they have one of the most feared passing attacks in any of the non power conferences racking up over 551 yards and 8 touchdowns. The Red Wolves offense features a dual threat at quarterback and have two receivers who will be NFL draft picks in Jonathan Adams and Dahu Green. The Arkansas State pass defense is just as bad as their passing attack is great but I’m not worried about that as much in this game because of what Appalachian State likes to do on offense.
Speaking of Appalachian State, while they are the better program and the better team in this matchup I don’t believe they are really built to blow teams out this season especially one that can score like Arkansas State. Appalachian wants to run the ball down your throat then keep running it. While I think they will win this game, I see them getting off to a slow start as they have not played a game since September 26th and that was against an FCS school where many starters didn’t play after halftime. So their last game against a Division 1A school was over a month ago.
Look for an entertaining game that Appalachian State wins but Arkansas State covers. Appalachian is 0-3 against the spread this season and I think that trend continues. I’m betting Arkansas State. The Pick: Take Arkansas State +14
