Key Betting Trends
The under has cashed in all five of the last five meetings between these two teams and in the last five meetings, the home team also covered in every game.
OUR PREDICTION: I don't care what the head-to-head trends say: This one is going over. The over is 4-1 in the Razorbacks' last five home games, is 5-1 in their last six games coming off an ATS win, and is a perfect 5-0 in their last five games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous contest.
In their five game winning streak, the Tigers have scored 68, 52, 45, 50 and 45 points. Granted, their defense has been outstanding during that stretch, but Arkansas should contribute enough to push the combined score over. The Razorbacks are averaging nearly four touchdowns a game and are allowing 35.1 points per contest, which ranks 111th in the nation. I don't see this matchup turning into a defensive struggle.
