The Aggies are 7-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 neutral site games. The Razorbacks are 10-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games. The Aggies are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
This isn't much of a neutral site game with it being played in Texas, as there are sure to be more Texas A&M fans in the building. Arkansas is the more physical team and could control the tempo, but Texas A&M is the more talented and should be able to put points on the board quite a bit.
We just saw the Razorbacks lose to a spread team, Texas A&M is even better than Texas A&M. This isn't a good spot for the Razorbacks.
