Bet The Arkansas State Red Wolves at +1.5 To Win The New Orleans Bowl Because…
The Red Wolves closed the season with wins in seven straight games and finish the regular season atop the conference.
The Arkansas State Red Wolves (9-3 SU, 8-4 ATS) have won eight straight games and enter this contest coming off an emphatic 55-17 blowout of Texas State on Dec. 5 as a 24.5-point home favorite. Unfortunately, Arkansas State also has to deal with the news that starting defensive end Chris Stone and backup wide receiver Tyler Trosin were both arrested on drug charges on Tuesday.
Now head coach Blake Anderson is avoiding dealing with the issues as he prepares his team for their bowl game matchup. Anderson said he is "aware of the unfortunate and disappointing incident," but declined to comment further until more information about the arrest is revealed. The Red Wolves average a stellar 41.0 points per game thanks to their three-headed rushing trio of Michael Gordon, Warren Ward and Johnston White. The Red Wolves allow 28.8 points per contest defensively.

Bet The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at -1.5 To Win The New Orleans Bowl Because…
The Bulldogs are steaming after getting beat up by Southern Miss.
The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (8-4 SU, 6-6 ATS) had their four-game winning streak snapped in their humbling 58-24 loss to Southern Miss on Nov. 28 while never coming close to covering the NCAAF betting line as a 5-point home favorite no less.
Led by running back Kenneth Dixon, Louisiana Tech averages a fantastic 36.8 points per game. Dixon has rushed for an eye-opening 17 touchdowns this season while averaging 96.8 rushing yards per contest.
Dixon is currently just 32 yards away from becoming the first player in program history to record three 1,000-yard rushing seasons.
Former Florida Gatos quarterback Jeff Driskel has completed 61.9 percent of his passes this season while tossing 24 touchdowns and just eight interceptions. Defensively, Louisiana Tech limits its opponents to 26.8 points per contest.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Arkansas State has won eight straight games while Louisiana Tech ended their regular season with an emphatic blowout loss.
The Red Wolves are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an SU win, 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games against a team with a inning record.
Louisiana Tech has gone 4-0 ATS in their last four games against teams from the Sun Belt Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last six games against non-conference opponents, but for me, I just can’t get past their emphatic blowout loss in their regular season finale.
With that thought in mind, I’m going to urge you to back Arkansas Stat to win and cover the spread in a shootout that plays just over the 67-point Over/Under Total.
