The Arkansas Razorbacks look for their first home victory since the season opener. Brandon Allen is completing 62.4 percent of his passes for 1,536 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. Allen has four touchdown passes in his last three games. Drew Morgan and Hunter Henry have combined for 714 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Keon Hatcher has 13 receptions. The Arkansas Razorbacks ground game is averaging 177.3 yards per contest, and Alex Collins leads the way with 682 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Arkansas is allowing 23.2 points and 365.3 yards per game. Brooks Ellis leads the Razorbacks with 49 tackles, Tevin Beanum has 1.5 sacks and Henre’ Toliver has four pass deflections. Cornelius Floyd and Juan Day are questionable.
The Tigers are 6-0 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 3-14 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Razorbacks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in October and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
Arkansas is just not a good football team right now and has lost four of its last five games. While Auburn can also be put in that boat this season, we did see some of the old Tigers last week on the road against Kentucky. Assuming White takes care of the ball, Auburn could win this game outright.
Give me the points.
