Texas A&M Betting Trends
The Aggies are just 8-23 against the spread in their last 31 conference games and are 6-13 against the number in their last 19 neutral site contests. They have also failed to cover the spread much overall, going 2-10 at the betting window in their last 12 games.
Arkansas Betting Trends
The Razorbacks are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games, are 0-4 against the number in their last four games versus a team with a winning record, and are 2-6 at the betting window in their last eight games played in September. That said, they're a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games coming off a bye week.
OUR PREDICTION: The Razorbacks have been a good bet coming off a bye, winning each of their last three games following an off week. Arkansas has also been strong defensively, ranking fifth in the SEC and 17th in the nation in total defense while allowing an average of just 268 yards per game. Austin Allen has struggled under center, but perhaps the bye week and a chance to light it up against Texas A&M's defense will snap him out of his funk. I like the small dog here.
