The Sun Belt is going to be wacky and wild this year, and we know that this is just the first of many games that are going to help decide who gets the automatic bowl bid between these two. In this case though, we really think that the ‘total’ is the way to go. The only reason that the number is this high is because of the history of these two teams. Sure, the Trojans have no defense whatsoever, and we think there is a good chance that they are going to allow the Red Wolves to get into the 30s, if not in the 40s in this game. That being said, this is a number that is just far too high in this one.
The Trojans do have a quarterback in QB Corey Robinson that has completed 92.2 percent of his passes this year, but we also know that Troy hasn’t played a team with any semblance of a defense yet on the campaign. We learned absolutely nothing from those games against either the Savannah State Tigers or the UAB Blazers. QB Adam Kennedy takes over this year for the Red Wolves, who have their work cut out for them to try to duplicate last season’s success without QB Ryan Aplin. Arky State only put nine on the board against the Auburn Tigers last week, and though we know that the numbers are going to be better than that in this one, we just don’t see how the numbers are going to be so good for either side that there are going to be at least nine touchdowns in this game.
Troy vs. Arkansas State Pick: Under 66.5
