Arkansas State vs Memphis 9/5/20 Betting Prediction
The Arkansas State Red Wolves played very well in 2019 and they exceeded my expectations as they went on to win 8 games. Sophomore QB Layne Hatcher continues to be under center and I believe he will even improve his numbers from last year- nearly 3000 passing yards, 27 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. Their rush defense is also very good but the secondary needs a lot of improvement and I believe this is where they will struggle.
Memphis won 12 games last season and were in a lot of discussions the whole year. The Tigers won to a strong Penn State team in the Cotton Bowl. There are coaching changes for Memphis but the most important thing is that they will be once again led by senior QB Brady White. He threw for over 4000 passing yards, 33 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in 2019.
This is a very difficult game to predict because Memphis will definitely have some hangover from last season. I doubt they will be able to get 12 wins in 2020 and the 19-point spread is very high. That is why I will be siding with the points in this one as both secondaries allow lots of points.
