The Arkansas Razorbacks beat UT Martin last Saturday to raise their overall record to 4-4 for the season. The Arkansas offense is averaging 32.5 points and 456 yards per game and they have turned the ball over seven times. Razorbacks QB Brandon Allen has completed 63.2 percent of his passes with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions. Alex Collins paces the Arkansas rushing attack with 960 yards and 12 touchdowns and Drew Morgan is their top receiver with 35 catches and six touchdowns. The Arkansas defense allows 26.6 points and 390.9 yards per game with seven interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and seven sacks. Brooks Ellis leads Arkansas with 66 tackles, Dre Greenlaw has 63 tackles, and Rohan Gaines has 45 tackles. Arkansas has shot themselves in the foot several times with overly conservative play and with penalties.
Ole Miss is 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games and 0-4 against the spread following a win. Arkansas is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven road games, 6-2 against the spread in their last eight SEC games, and 14-6 in their last 20 games. The underdog has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
This just seems like too many points and while I see Ole Miss winning the game Arkansas likely covers the spread.
