Arkansas State vs UT Arlington
7:00 PM EST
Arkansas State +3.5 over UT Arlington (win)
These are two evenly matched teams. Last year both were towards the bottom of the pack in the Sun Belt. A lot of these close games come down to who is at home. Arkansas State returns their top two players from last year while on the other hand David Azore has not played for the last few weeks and this UT Arlington defense is just not that good. Look for the Red Wolves to win this outright at home. Take Arkansas State.

Manhattan +9 over Saint Peter’s (win)
Saint Peter’s has a few good players on their roster. Daryl Banks was fun to watch his freshman year and this year he will only get better. This is a very good defensive team. Manhattan is also very good on defense so this game might be like watching paint dry. The Jaspers are excellent at getting offensive rebounds. Second chance points are going to be big in a game like this. I think the Jaspers did a great job at playing the transfer game as they brought in some guys from bigger programs. I believe this team has closed the gap and should play this game down to the wire. Take Manhattan.
