Football Betting Lines NCAA:
Arkansas State Red Wolves -3 ½ (-110) 63 ½ (-110) -175
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders +3 ½ (-110) 63 ½ (-110) +155
Arkansas State Red Wolves
The Arkansas State Red Wolves pillaged their way to a 7-4 record this season that saw the program finish 3rd in the Sun Belt conference. Without a doubt, the Red Wolves biggest matchup of the regular season would have been their early-season matchup against the then-ranked 16 Miami. That matchup ended up being cancelled due to inclement weather, ultimately robbing Arkansas of one heck of a quality win. In light of that matchup against a nationally ranked opponent, the 2017 Camellia Bowl will now be the most important game of Arkansas State’s season.
College football betting players looking for the best football betting lines NCAA to wager on for this matchup should consider the spread line as well as the over/under. Both teams have high-scoring offenses and mediocre defenses so they should be able to hit that 63 ½ mark without a problem. Lastly, the Red Wolves have a 6-5 against the spread record this season.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders gave it their all this season. Unfortunately, their all wasn’t good enough to finish above .500 as the Blue Raiders turned in a 6-6 record once it was all said and done. With this in mind, it’s clear that this weekend’s bowl game gives Middle Tennessee the opportunity to finish the season on an extremely high note. Surprisingly, the football betting lines NCAA are giving Middle Tennessee a fighting chance in this postseason matchup. The Blue Raiders will need a bit of luck to get the job done, since they’ll be at a statistical disadvantage this weekend.
Specifically, the Blue Raiders are putting up a total of 24.8 points per game. This is significantly less than the 38.5 Arkansas State’s offense is averaging per matchup. Additionally, the Blue Raiders don’t have any sort of advantage on defense. At the present time Middle Tennessee is allowing 24.3 points and 348.6 yards. Comparatively, the Red Wolves are giving up 24.9 points and 379.8 yards themselves. That doesn’t give Middle Tennessee an edge whatsoever. However, it makes it abundantly clear that the Blue Raiders will need a miracle if they are to get the job done this weekend.
