The Line: Arkansas Razorbacks -5.5 -- Over/Under: 48
The Arkansas Razorbacks and the Auburn Tigers face off on Saturday at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium for a week 8 SEC college football matchup.
The Arkansas Razorbacks are 2-4 this season and are coming off of a bye week after losing at Alabama two weeks ago. The Arkansas offense is averaging 23.8 points and 433.3 yards per game and they have turned the ball over six times. Razorbacks QB Brandon Allen has completed 62.4 percent of his passes with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions and has scrambled for 108 yards. Alex Collins leads the Arkansas rushing attack with 682 yards and six touchdowns and Drew Morgan is the top receiver with 27 catches and four touchdowns. The Arkansas defense is allowing 23.2 points and 365.3 yards per game with three fumble recoveries, five interceptions, and six sacks. Brooks Ellis is the Hogs leading tackler with 49, Dre Greenlaw has 37 tackles, and Rohan Gaines has 33 tackles. Arkansas is looking to turn their season around over the second half and make a run at a bowl game.
The Auburn Tigers are 4-2 this season but they are just 1-2 in the SEC. The Auburn offense is averaging 25.5 points and 354.3 yards per game and they have turned the ball over nine times. Sean White is at QB for the Tigers completing 66.2 percent of his passes but still looking for his first touchdown. Peyton barber is Auburn’s top rusher with 650 yards and eight touchdowns and Ricardo Louis has 26 catches and a touchdown. The Auburn defense is allowing 25.7 points and 426.2 yards per game with five interceptions, four fumble recoveries, and 10 sacks. Johnathan Ford leads the Auburn defense with 63 tackles, Kris Frost has 54 tackles, and Casanova McKinzy has 38 tackles including three sacks. Auburn hasn’t played their best but they have won their last two games.
Arkansas is 11-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 13-5 against the spread in their last 18 games, and 3-7 against the spread following a bye week. Auburn is 6-0 against the spread against a team with a losing record, 1-4 against the spread following a win, and 1-5 against the spread in their last six SEC games. The favorite has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
The total in this one is set at 50 and I like this one to go over that number and that is my free pick. My stronger pick is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area.
