Tennessee is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games, 15-6 against the spread following a loss, and 5-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Arkansas is 8-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 9-2 against the spread following a loss, and 1-4 against the spread against the SEC. Arkansas is 6-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings of these two.
I like Tennessee to win this game but the number here looks to be too high so I will take the points with the Hogs.
