TCU vs. Arkansas Prediction
Will TCU exact revenge on Arkansas today at 3:30PM ET when the two teams meet in Fayetteville?
Who: TCU (1-0) vs. Arkansas (1-0)
When: 3:30PM ET, Saturday, September 9
Where: Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, Fayetteville, Arkansas
Current Point Spread & Over/Under Total
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Razorbacks are 2.5-point home underdogs versus the Horned Frogs this afternoon. The total, meanwhile, sits at 58 points.
Although the total hasn't budged since opening at 58, the point spread has "jumped the fence." Arkansas opened as a 1.5-point home favorite but now TCU is favored by just under a field goal at most sports books.
Public Betting: Which side are public bettors on for this Matchup?
Public bettors are taking TCU at a pretty good clip. As of this writing, 65% of bettors are laying the points on the Horned Frogs.
OUR PREDICTION: This is an interesting matchup. Both Kenny Hill and Austin Allen have the ability to lead their respective teams to victory every week, so the quarterback position is even. The running backs are also even in this matchup. Where TCU has the advantage is in the trenches. Allen was sacked 35 times a year ago and the right side of the line is a major question. In Gary Patterson's 4-2-5 defense, the Frogs' front seven is fast and athletic. It could give Arkansas' line trouble and if the Razorbacks can't keep Allen upright, then it's going to be a long day the Hogs. It'll be a tight game, but I like TCU to avenge last season's loss.
