The Arkansas State Red Wolves and Louisiana Ragin Cajuns face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Cajun Field.
The Arkansas State Red Wolves are really struggling coming into this game having lost two games in a row and not only have they lost, they have been blown out. In the last game against Troy, Arkansas State lost 38-10. On the season Arkansas State is still averaging 31.1 points per game and most of their success comes through the air. Layne Hatcher and Logan Bonner have been both big parts of the offenses and they need to be better on that side of the ball in this game. On defense this season Arkansa State is giving up 40.3 points per game and if they want any chance to come away with the victory, this game can’t turn into a shootout, because it’s clear at this point their offense isn’t going to keep up.
On the other side of this matchup is the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns who have only lost one game this season and it was against a very good Coastal Carolina squad. For the most part this season Louisiana’s defense has been strong, but in the last game it was the offense that had to make up for a poor defensive performance winning 44-34. On offense this season the Ragin Cajuns are averaging 30 points per game while their defense is giving up 24.5 points per game. At quarterback Louisiana is led by Levi Lewis who has thrown for 1380 yards, nine touchdowns, and five interceptions.
The over is 6-2 in Arkansas State’s last eight road games. The under is 10-4-1 in Arkansas State’s last 15 games played in November. The overi s 7-3 in Arkansas State’s last 10 games overall. The under is 11-4 in Louisiana’s last 15 games overall. Arkansas State is 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 meetings against Louisiana.
Arkansas State has some serious issues this season and that is going to continue in this game. Look for The Red Wolves offense to struggle to score and that is going to lead to Louisiana winning this game and covering the spread.
