Bet on Texas State vs. Arkansas

Arkansas struggled in the opener, beating Louisiana Tech 21-20, but the Razorbacks bounced back last week with a 41-38 OT win at TCU. The Razorbacks have split the over/under in the two games thus far. Arkansas is putting up only 350 yards per game thus far on offense while allowing 431.5 yards per game.

Texas State started the year with a 56-54 OT win over Ohio two weeks ago. The Bobcats have hit the over in their last three games. While Texas State has been able to move the ball, posting 546 yards of offense against Ohio, the defense isn’t stopping anyone. The Bobcats allowed 630 yards in the win over Ohio. Tyler Jones threw for 418 yards and four touchdowns to lead the offense in the victory.

Texas State gave up a lot to Ohio. While Arkansas isn’t an offensive power, the Razorbacks should be much bigger and faster than Texas State. It’s hard to see the Bobcats getting many defensive stops in this game. With that said, Arkansas hasn’t been showing a tremendous defense thus far. Texas State has some offensive skill and will find the end zone a few times during this beating. With the Bobcats being able to score, that should be good enough to hit the over.
