Appalachian State is ranked 27th overall as they are averaging 34.8 points per game. The Mountaineers have Chase Brice under center, and he’s been solid. He’s thrown for 2,096 yards and 14 touchdowns, completing 66.2% of his passes.

The Red Wolves struggled to move the ball in their last time out. The Red Wolves rushed for just 38 yards and had 224 yards of total offense in their loss to South Alabama. Arkansas State is averaging 27.5 points per game which has them at 76th in the nation. They are 63rd in the nation in yards per game at 408.3.
James Blackman passed for 1,334 yards and 8 TDs this season before going out. Now, Layne Hatcher is leading the team, he has completed 55.1% of his passes for 1,292 yards and 12 touchdowns to 6 interceptions.
Arkansas has one of the worst defenses in college football as they are allowing 42.4 points per game, ranked 128th overall. The Red Wolves are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games.
The Red Wolves have been abysmal this season as they’ve not only struggled to get wins, but also to even be competitive. App State needs to make a statement here and cover this -21 point spread. The Mountaineers are 11-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. I’ll lay the heavy number with App State.
