According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Arkansas is the heavy favorite in this game. The Razorbacks are getting odds of -30.5 points against Texas State. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 61.5 points. These two have no recent meetings to consider.
Arkansas survived a scare from Louisiana Tech in the opener, 21-20, but looked like a much stronger team last week when it picked up a 41-38 OT win over TCU on the road. Surprisingly, Arkansas is struggling on defense, giving up 431.5 yards per game right now. The offense isn’t exactly going well, posting just 350 yards per game right now. Rawleigh Williams III has run for 233 yards and a touchdown while Austin Allen has thrown for 414 yards and five touchdowns.
Texas State is coming off a 56-54 win at Ohio in their lone game of the season. They were a 17-point underdog, but the Bobcats are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games. Texas State had 546 yards of offense in the win, but gave up 630 yards to Ohio. Quarterback Tyler Jones threw for 418 yards and four touchdowns, but also had a pair of interceptions.
Texas State isn’t going to post 546 yards on Arkansas. However, the Razorbacks could put up a lot of yards on the Bobcats. Arkansas should certainly inflate its weak offensive numbers this week and be able to run the ball at will against Texas State. The Bobcats aren’t much of a road team typically, going just 1-6 ATS in their last seven on the road. This is a game for Arkansas to really get on track on both sides of the ball, so look for them to make a statement against this weak opponent.
