College football betting on Thursday includes a matchup at Western Kentucky as the Hilltoppers host Arkansas State.
It is the last chance this NCAA football betting season for Western Kentucky to get a victory.
College football betting last week had Arkansas State getting a 30-26 win over North Texas as freshman quarterback Ryan Aplin had 362 yards of total offense. Running back Reggie Arnold added 111 rushing yards and a touchdown. Aplin completed 18-of-28 passes for 240 yards and added 122 yards and two touchdowns on the ground as Arkansas State got the win although they did not cover the seven point college football betting odds.
“It’s great to get a win, it was a hard fought win,” said ASU head coach Steve Roberts. “I thought Ryan Aplin played outstanding. He did some great things in the running game. He proved that you have to pay attention to him as a threat in the running game, and he threw the football very well with the exception of a few goal line passes.” The sad part for those that took Arkansas State in college football betting is that they had a 27-0 lead yet only won by four points in the end.
Western Kentucky lost again last week to Florida Atlantic but they kept the game close and covered the NCAA football betting odds in a 29-23 loss. Even though Western Kentucky is winless at 0-11 they are 5-6 against the college football betting number. "We were really close on some plays, but once again we had a string of something here, something there that hurt us,” WKU head coach David Elson said.

The Red Wolves are 7-20 vs. the college football betting line in their last 27 conference games. The Red Wolves are 1-11 in college football betting in their last 12 road games.
Western Kentucky doesn’t have many plusses in college football betting for this game either. The Hilltoppers are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games. The Hilltoppers are 2-7 in NCAA football betting vs. a team with a losing record.
16 of the last 22 Arkansas State road games have gone under the total. 19 of their last 27 overall have gone under in college football betting.
