Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Tigers are 23-point favorites to beat the Razorbacks. The total, meanwhile, sits at 61.5 points. As of this writing, 65% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Tigers.
Arkansas senior cornerback Ryan Pulley has been suspended for Friday's game against Missouri. Pulley and starting safety Kamren Purl have been suspended for "conduct that isn't acceptable" according to Arkansas head coach Chad Morris. Both were seen socializing and taking pictures with members of the Mississippi State dance team during Arkansas's loss to the Bulldogs on Saturday. Pulley has started nine games this year, and redshirt freshman Montaric Brown will likely start in his place.
Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 21-of-30 passes for 257 yards with two scores in a 50-17 throttling of Tennessee on Saturday. This was a thorough clubbing by the Tigers, who have -- again -- turned their season around in the second half. Lock was solid in the victory, not turning the football over and finding the end zone for the 22nd and 23rd time, respectively. A team that was once out of bowl contention now has a chance to win eight games, and Lock (6'4/225) has a lot to do with that. They close the year with Arkansas on Friday.
The under is 4-1 in the Razorbacks’ last five road games.
The under is 4-1 in the Tigers’ last five conference games and 10-4 in their last 14 games played in the month of November.
Lock and this Mizzou offense should light up an Arkansas defense that will be without a couple of suspended cornerbacks. The over is 4-1 in the Razorbacks’ last five conference games and is 4-1 in their last five games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. The over is also 7-1 in the Tigers’ last eight games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game and is 4-1-1 in their last six games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous contest.
