Arkansas State vs. Appalachian State Prediction

I’m on Arkansas State here. These are two teams that have been on one heck of a cover run as of late, and I know getting App State at home in a spot like this is tempting, but I have to think that Arkansas State can hold their own here. Even if the Red Wolves don’t win outright, I think they compete here and at worst keep this game close. Give me the Red Wolves and the points.
