The South Alabama Jaguars will welcome the Arkansas State Red Wolves to the Hancock Whitney Stadium in a critical Sun Belt conference matchup on Saturday Night. The struggling Red wolves have lost six straight.
Arkansas State has been abysmal this year straight up with just 1 win on the season. Victory alluded the Red Wolves by only 1 point when they fell to Louisiana last time out. This awful start to the season can be attributed to losing starting QB James Blackman to a shoulder injury, but honestly this team has struggled long before that. Their defense is ranked 129th in the nation. This team lets the opponent score at will and doesn’t dish out half the amount of offensive firepower required to keep up.
The Jaguars of South Alabama are banking on their home crowd for a much needed win here. They are above .500 but haven’t fared well this season losing 3 of their last 4 and winning only three of their last 7 against the spread. Last week they lost to a Louisiana Monroe Team who started a freshman QB that lit them up for 369 yards. Jake Bentley continues to look good at QB for the Jaguars, they just need to rack up some more wins on the season.
Ten is a lot to lay with the Jaguars after they lost outright in a game in which they were highly favored. With that being said Arkansas State has consistently looked out of it. They are 1-5 ATS in their last six games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in the previous game. I can’t take the points with a team that struggles this much defensively. I don’t love it, but I’ll take a shot with the Jaguars.
