The Arkansas Razorbacks and the Auburn Tigers meet in an SEC college football matchup from Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Arkansas Razorbacks will look to build on their massive 21-14 road win over Mississippi State to improve to 1-1 this season. Feleipe Franks has thrown for 412 yards, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on 60.9% passing while Treion Smith has a team-high 86 rushing yards. De’Vion Warren has a team-high 128 receiving yards while Treylon Burke has a team-high 8 catches for 112 yards to lead the Razorbacks in receptions. Defensively, Bumper Pool leads the Hogs with 31 total tackles while Grant Morgan has 28 total tackles and Jalen Catalon has 22 total tackles with 16 solo tackles. Dorian Gerald has 1.5 sacks while Joe Foucha has a pair of interceptions.
The Auburn Tigers will look to rebound from their first loss of the season after a 27-6 loss at Georgia last time out. Bo Nix has thrown for 410 yards, 3 touchdowns and an interception on 55.2% passing while Tarik Bigsby has a team-high 46 rushing yards this season. Seth Williams has a team-high 146 receiving yards for the Tigers while Anthony Schwartz has a team-high 11 catches for the Tigers’ receiving group this year. Defensively, K.J. Britt has a team-high 23 total tackles while Zakoby McClain has 19 total tackles with 11 solo tackles.
Arkansas is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games as a road underdog. Auburn is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 home games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 conference games.
Part of me wants to invest some stock in Arkansas’ win over Mississippi State, but any team can catch a break once in a while, and it’s a case of not enough of a sample size to trust in Arkansas to do it on back-to-back weeks, especially against an Auburn team that failed to show up against Georgia in a nationally-televised game. Something about this Auburn team just looks off though, to the point where I’m not sure they can get it done even against Arkansas. Instead, I’m going to side with the under as I think we see a low-scoring battle and even if one side takes over the scoreboard, I have a hard time seeing an utter blowout so I’ll back the under.
