The Line: Arkansas Razorbacks +3 -- Over/Under: 58.5
The Arkansas Razorbacks and the Georgia Bulldogs face off on Saturday in Fayetteville in on Saturday for a SEC college football tilt.
The Arkansas Razorbacks started the season with four wins but they have lost their last two games and have yet to win a game in SEC play. The Arkansas offense is averaging 39.3 points and 459.5 yards per game with QB Brandon Allen completing 57.7 percent of his passes with 10 touchdowns and two interceptions. Alex Collins anchors the strong Arkansas running game averaging 6.9 yards per carry with six touchdowns and Jonathan Williams averages 6.6 yards per carry with nine touchdowns. The Razorbacks passing attack has been uninspiring with Keon Hatcher leading the Hogs with 16 receptions followed by A.J. Derby with 12 receptions and three touchdowns. The Arkansas defense allowed just 14 points in the loss to Bama last week and are allowing 23.8 per game this season with four interceptions, five fumble recoveries, and 10 sacks. Martrell Spaight leads the Arkansas defense with 53 tackles, Brooks Ellis has 39 tackles, and Trey Flowers has 34 tackles. It was a special teams blunder on a blocked extra point that was the difference a week ago.
The Georgia Bulldogs are 5-1 this season and are thinking winning the SEC East and the SEC Championship game. Georgia is averaging 43.2 points per game and 445.7 yards as QB Hutson Mason has completed 70.5 percent of his passes with eight touchdowns and three interceptions. With Todd Gurley suspended Nick Chubb has taken over the running game averaging 5.3 yards per carry and Michael Bennett is UGA’s leading receiver with 19 receptions. The Georgia defense is allowing 18 points per game and just 303.7 yards with eight interceptions, 15 sacks, and five fumble recoveries. Amarlo Herrera has 47 tackles and three sacks, Ramik Wilson has 41 tackles, and Leonard Floyd has four sacks. Georgia is coming off of a statement game against Missouri and is on the road for the second week in a row.
Arkansas is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games, 4-1 against the spread in their last five games, and 6-0 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Georgia is 5-11-1 against the spread in their last 17 games, 2-6 against the spread in their last eight road games, and 2-9-1 against the spread following a win. The underdog has covered the point spread in the last four meetings f these two.
With the total at 58.5 I see the under coming into play with both teams running the ball and running the clock so the under is my free pick. My stronger pick is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
