Best Bets for this Game
Full-Game Side Bet
The Tigers have won three of their last five games and two of their last three home games. They have played well offensively thanks to a good ground game that is picking up more than 150 yards per game. The Razorbacks aren’t very good defensively, and they have one of the worst run defenses in the league, so expect them to have a hard time slowing down the Tigers. The Razorbacks have lost two of their last three games. They struggled offensively during the stretch and were held under 20 points in two of those games. Even though they have the eighth-best run game in the country, they will struggle offensively in this game because the Tigers have been great against the run, holding opponents under 135 rushing yards per game, and will keep their offense in check, so go with Missouri to cover the spread as home dogs.
Full-Game Total Pick
The Razorbacks are averaging 31 points per game and 36.6 points per game on the road. They averaged 32 points per game in their last three games against the Tigers. They run the ball well but they are facing a defense that has been very good against the run and is giving up 24.8 points per game, so expect them to be held under their average in this game. The Tigers are averaging 25.2 points per game and 31.1 points per game at home. They averaged 30.3 points per game in their last three games against the Razorbacks. They also run the ball well, but the Razorbacks have struggled against the run and are giving up 28.7 points per game, so expect the Tigers to score enough points to push the score over the total.
