Arkansas is 15-7 against the spread in their last 22 home games, 4-0 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 10-27 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. Georgia is 21-8 against the spread against the SEC, 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games, and 4-1 against the spread in their last five games against Arkansas.
