Against The Spread Pick

This Sun belt match-up will see the two bottom dwellers face off on Wednesday night. The Red Wolves are 7-11 in conference and the Ragin’ Cajuns are 6-11. Unless either of these teams makes a miraculous run to win the Sun Belt title game, they will be left of the tournament. Arkansas State are in the midst of a seven game losing streak, so not exactly a good basketball team. Louisiana-Lafayette are not exactly playing great basketball either right now, winning just two of their last six. When these teams met back in December, the Red Wolves easily beat the Ragin’ Cajuns by 12. It is worth noting that Arkansas State are 8-4 ATS away from home this season, so with that being said, I lean to the away side to get the cover.

Over Under Pick

Like the side, this is not really a total I want to be involved in. Each side is scoring about 70 points per game, but are allowing between 72-75 points. Defense has only gotten worse over the last five games, where the Red Wolves are allowing 76 points and the Ragin’ Cajuns are giving up about 80 points. The over is 3-0 in the last 3 meetings and 9-3 in Arkansas State’s last 12 games overall. I do not trust either defense here, so my lean would be on the over.
