SLINGIN' SATURDAY CFB 3-PACK #3
Arkansas State Red Wolves (0-0) at Memphis Tigers (0-0)

I completely understand Memphis being favored as Brady White is an experienced quarterback that can lead the Tigers back to the top of the AAC this season. However, there’s still a lot of replacing to do in the Memphis offense, as lead back Kenneth Gainwell opted out of the 2020 season, citing COVID concerns and the Tigers were already without tight end Joey Magnifico and home run threat Antonio Gibson from the receiving corps. I think it’s going to be interesting to see what the Red Wolves do at QB in terms of deciding between Layne Hatcher and Logan Bonner, but the offensive capability is still there for A-State and while I think Memphis wins this game and gets their fair share of points against a shaky Arkansas State defense, the Red Wolves will hold their own and keep this one within the number. Give me Arkansas State and the points as my premium pick for this game.
