Arkansas is still getting little respect from oddmakers and bettors despite beating Ole Miss as big underdogs last week. The Razorbacks may not be pretty, but Arkansas is physical in the trenches and finds ways to keep games close heading into the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Auburn is a team that still struggles on the offensive side of the ball. Wasn't sure why the Razorbacks were big underdogs last week and took the points then. I'm doing the same here.
