Arkansas State vs. SMU Free Pick September 23, 2017

Opening Lines: O/U: 73 | SMU -4.5
Kick Off: 7:00 PM ET

By Scott Spreitzer

I’m recommending a play on Arkansas State plus the points on Saturday afternoon.

SMU put 36 points on the board against TCU last time out, but allowed 56.  The Mustangs have allowed TCU and North Texas to complete 56 of 77, 73% of their passes, for 789 yards, with 7 TDs and just 2 INTs.  T

he porous pass defense plays right into Arkansas State’s strength, the passing game led by QB Justice Hansen.  The ASU signal caller has completed 71% of his passes on the season, averaging over 385 yards per game with 8 TDs and only 2 INTs.

And while Arkansas State was cruising to an easy 45-point win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, SMU was suffering the tough emotional and physical loss to TCU.

SMU’s defense ranks 117th against the pass and 104th in total yards allowed per game.  We had Arkansas State and cashed when they covered at Nebraska in their season opener.

We’ll recommend them again this week.

Arkansas State plus the points.

Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.

The Pick: Arkansas State +6 (-110)
