Arkansas State vs Georgia Final Betting Analysis
Georgia should blow out Arkansas State, but the Red Wolves are a sneaky talented Sun-Belt squad. Arkansas State knows it doesn’t have much chance of upsetting Georgia. They’ll play loose, though. That could help the Red Wolves put up some points.
On defense, Arkansas State will just try to contain Georgia’s explosive offense. Sounds crazy, but it could work. Once UGA gets up by around 42 points, there’s a chance they relax. If Georgia wins 48-17, not out of the question, the Red Wolves cover. Take the points.
