Arkansas State -3 1/2 over Middle Tennessee State
Las Vegas opened the Red Wolves as a 3 1/2 point favorite and I like that line a lot. I think it provides opportunity on both sides of the play but to me there’s a lot more value on one side in particular. First looking at the play itself, there are certainly a lot more high profile bowl games than this matchup but you’re a fan of seeing two two teams drop back and air it out against each other, then this is definitely a game for you. Arkansas State comes into this match up with 6th ranked passing offense in the country as quarterback Justice Hansen has thrown for over 3600 yards and 34 touchdowns. On the other sideline, Middle Tennessee State quarterback Brent Stockstill is averaging 240 yards a game in the air with 14 touchdowns in the 6 games that he’s started.
When you watch both of these teams on film, the aggressiveness in their play calling jumps out at you as they go with a lot of quick throws and keep an up tempo style of play when they have the football. I expect between 75-80 pass attempts in this bowl game between both teams. Defensively both the Red Wolves and Blue Raiders have had a difficult time defending the pass this season which is also an additive that could make this either a high scoring game or a lopsided game where we see one team blowout the other.
In the end, I’m impressed with the season that Middle Tennessee has had but my edge in this matchup goes to Arkansas State. Offensively they are dominating and their 3rd down percentage is a staggering 45% which means they feed off of extending drives and winning the time of possession battle. I think they’re going to wear down Middle Tennessee State gradually throughout this game and by the fourth quarter have enough to pull away on the scoreboard and cover those three and half points so my play here: take Arkansas State -3 1/2 over Middle Tennessee State.
