Missouri continues slide
Missouri is on a big slide right now, having lost four straight games following a 24-20 loss at home to Tennessee last weekend. The Tigers have scored just 33 points over their last four games combined. Missouri is now 5-6 on the season, 2-5 in the SEC, 4-7 against the spread and 9-2 with the under.
The Tigers have been pretty solid defensively this year, allowing only 19.9 points and 318.4 yards per game. Kobie Whiteside is leading the defense with 27 tackles and 7.5 sacks. Offensively, Missouri is putting up just 25.5 points and 378.4 yards per contest. Kelly Bryant is leading the team with 2,215 passing yards and 15 touchdowns, while also rushing for 242 yards and a score. Larry Rountree III is the leading rusher with 741 yards and eight touchdowns while Jonathan Nance is the leading receiver with 28 catches for 420 yards and three touchdowns.
Arkansas can’t find a win
The Arkansas Razorbacks have lost eight straight games coming into Friday, including a 56-20 loss at LSU last weekend. The Razorbacks are 2-9 on the season, 0-7 in the SEC, 3-8 against the spread and 6-5 with the under.
Arkansas has been putrid on defense this year, allowing 38 points and 462.3 yards per game. Offensively, the Razorbacks are putting up 22.1 points and 349.1 yards per game. Rakeem Boyd is leading the offense with 1,038 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. K.J. Jefferson and Nick Starkel have been seeing time at QB recently, but both have more INTs than TDs. Treylon Burks is the team’s leading receiver with 28 catches for 469 yards, but doesn’t have a TD.
College Football Betting Trends
The Tigers are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 Friday games, but 0-6 ATS in their last six SEC games.
Arkansas is just 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 0-4 ATS in their last four against a losing team.
Missouri has won five of the last six in this series while going 4-2 against the spread in those six games. The Tigers have really taken a dive, especially on offense. Arkansas hasn’t been any better, losing their last five games by at least 26 points, including a loss to Western Kentucky. Prior to their slide, Missouri was putting up some good numbers on offense, including 38 against Ole Miss and 34 against South Carolina. I don’t love giving up 12 points for the Tigers, but Arkansas is a disaster on defense. If Missouri can’t score consistently on the Razorbacks, then the Tigers don’t deserve to go to a bowl.
