Arkansas in a big funk
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.
Missouri drops fourth straight
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.
College Football Betting Trends
Arkansas is 4-1 with the under in their last five Friday games, but 4-1 with the over in their last five games following a loss.
The Tigers have hit the under in five straight conference games and in 14 of their last 17 games overall.
These two have trended heavy to the under, hitting it in six of their last seven meetings. Arkansas has struggled to score on Missouri over time, getting shut out last year on the road. The Tigers have struggled on offensively recently, but have remained respectable on defense. I think the defense for the Tigers will be the story in this game. Arkansas has been held in check by good defensive teams and that should keep the Razorbacks from putting up many points. Missouri just isn’t clicking enough on offense right now to put up points on Arkansas either.
