The Arkansas State Red Wolves and the Appalachian State Mountaineers meet in college basketball action from Holmes Center on Thursday. 

The Red Wolves enter this game at 12-6 so far. Arkansas State is 2-3 in their last five games, falling to TX-Arlington, Texas State and South Alabama while beating Georgia State and Troy in that time. 

In the OT win over the Trojans, Arkansas State’s Marquis Eaton posted 24 points with five assists and two rebounds. Caleb Fields posted 17 points with five rebounds and five assists, and Melo Eggleston had 12 points with 10 rebounds.

Over on the Appalachian State side, they’re 9-9 this year. The Mountaineers are 1-5 in the last six games, beating GA Southern while otherwise falling to NC State, GA State, Louisiana, TX-Arlington and Texas State. 

In the loss to the Bobcats, Appalachian State’s only double-digit scorer was Justin Forrest with 23 points and one assist. Hunter Seacat was the next-closest, chipping in nine points and three rebounds. 

The under is 9-2 in the Mountaineers’ last 11 home games and 7-1 in their last eight Thursday games. App State is 6-13 ATS in their last 19 Thursday games and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 home games. 

Meanwhile, the Wolves are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games and 7-15 ATS in their last 22 road games. Arkansas State is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 overall and the under is 4-0 in their last four road games. 

Over the last five games, Arkansas State has been pretty choppy when it comes to scoring points, and they failed to even hit 60 in two of those outings. It’s something of a departure from earlier in the season, when the Red Wolves topped 70 pretty routinely. 

That said, App State has managed just 113 combined points over their last two, and just isn’t performing very well right now. I’m going to go with the Red Wolves on the cover here, but I’m not thrilled about either team these days.
