Will update with trends once they're released.
The Vanderbilt Commodores have had their issues this season when it comes to winning games, but they are 15-15-1 against the spread and are losing their last five games by an average of just four points, so there's some value here and it's not like they've been getting destroyed. The Arkansas Razorbacks have found ways to win games lately, but they're far from the team they were earlier in the year and aren't a team I trust overall. The Arkansas Razorbacks are also 4-9 against the spread in non-home games this season. I don't love this game, but I'm not laying big chalk with the Razorbacks. It's the Vanderbilt Commodores or pass.
