Arkansas State Red Wolves vs. LA-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns NCAAF Free Pick And Preview
I like this game OVER the total.
This is the lowest total in this matchup since 2010 when the Total was 51.5. Arkansas State comes into this game with a double deuce offense (200+ rush and pass yards a game) and they have been dominant in their last 2 games; telling me this offense is coming alive. They outgained Georgia State by 349 yards and outgained UL-Monroe by 224 yards. For UL-Lafayette, they come into this game also outgaining their last two opponents, which includes last Tuesdays game where they outgained Texas State by 258 yards.
I think that by both offenses are really clicking right now, both using the running game to ignite the passing game and that both offenses should have success tonight in what figures to be a close game where we will see touchdowns traded back and forth.
Arkansas State has a legit dual threat QB in Fredi Knighten. They also feature a 2nd Tm Sun Belt RB in Michael Gordon and a 1st Tm Sun Belt WR in JD McKissic. For UL-Lafayette, they have a senior QB in Terrance Broadway who is another dual threat quarterback. On offense, Lafayette has a premier set of running backs who were in 1st TM Sun Belt, Alonzo Harris, and Sun Belt Freshmen Player of the Year, Elijah McGuire. This is a ‘Thunder and lightning’ combo that can cause trouble for Arkansas State.
Arkansas State runs an up-tempo offense and UL-Lafayette will have to keep pace in this one. Broadway looked good last week running the zone read and I don’t see any reason why we don’t see a final score tonight in the 34-31 range as this one should go OVER by a full 7 points or more.
The OVER is 4-0 in Lafayette’s last 4 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. The OVER is 10-2-1 in Lafayette’s last 13 games on turf. For Arkansas State, the OVER is 5-2 on their last 7 games on turf and the OVER is 5-1 in their last 6 conference games.
