Taylor to shine in NO Bowl?
One of the best wide receivers you may not know is featured in today’s New Orleans Bowl as Arkansas State faces Louisiana Tech at 9PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Louisiana Tech is the slight favorite in this game, as the Bulldogs are getting odds of -2 points against Arkansas State tonight. The over/under total for the game has been set at 68 points. These two meet tonight at 9PM ET on ESPN from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA.
Louisiana Tech (8-4, 6-6 ATS) features one of the best receivers in the country in Trent Taylor, who has put up an impressive stat line in 2015. The 5-8 junior has caught 89 passes for 1,133 yards with eight touchdowns this year and he looks to cap off his season with a big showing in the Bulldogs’ bowl game with Arkansas State (9-3, 8-4 ATS).
Oddsmakers like Taylor to have a nice showing tonight, as they have listed his over/under at 7.5 receptions and 94.5 receiving yards. Taylor is up against an Arkansas State pass defense that is giving up 251.9 yards per game this season through the air, which ranks 96th nationally. That likely means good things for Taylor, who has six games in 2015 with at least 8 receptions. He also has had at least 95 receiving yards in seven games.
