The Arkansas State Red Wolves are one of the worst defenses in the league through 3 games, especially their pass defense that’s ranked 99th in the country. This will also be the Red Wolves third straight road game, so there could be some tired legs here. The Old Dominion Monarchs are coming off back to back road games where they sowed promise despite their losses, and we can’t forget their win over Virginia Tech. ODU has been the better team up to this point and has shown us more. At home, I’ll side with the Monarchs and reasonable line.
