How Does Arkansas State Bounce Back?

Arkansas State’s offense was good heading into the last game, but they really struggled in the last game. Arkansas State scored only three points against Troy and that led to the blowout defeat. Two games ago against UMass, Arkansas State scored 52 points and that led to the blowout victory. Arkansas State on the season is averaging 22.2 points while their defense is giving up 36.5 points per game. The offense is ranked 107th in the league and they need to find a way to get the offense going here.

  • Arkansas State has failed to cover the spread in 10 of its last 12 October games as an underdog.
