Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide (5-0 Overall / 2-0 Conference)
The Crimson Tide are simply unstoppable so far. They remained unbeaten through the first five weeks of college football season after walloping the overmatched Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns at home, 56-14. Tua Tagovailoa went 8 of 8 for 128 passing yards and two touchdowns while Jalen Hurts finished with 118 passing yards and touchdown. With the Crimson Tide up bug early, they were opted to ran the ball most of the time and came away with 268 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 46 attempts. Alabama’s defense also scored a touchdown while the special teams added another via a punt return. It has been that easy so far this season for Alabama, which has the defense that could make Arkansas bleed for its points. ‘Bama is No. 2 in the nation with only 13.0 points allowed per game. Combine that with an offense that averages 54.2 points per game (No. 1 in the FBS) and the Tide are looking like a virtual lock to win in Fayetteville.
The Crimson Tide are 4-2 ATS in their last six road games against Arkansas.
Betting on the Arkansas Razorbacks (1-4 Overall / 0-2 Conference)
It’s hard to look someone straight in the eye and convince them that Arkansas will be the first team to take down Alabama this season, but at least they covered their first spread in last week’s 24-17 loss to the Texas A&M Aggies as a 19.5-point underdog. Against the Aggies, quarterback Ty Storey went 14 of 26 for 193 passing yards and a touchdown with an interception. The Razorbacks’ backfield, meanwhile, chipped in 55 rushing yards. Arkansas’ offense isn’t quite there yet to be seen as threat to Alabama, but the Razorback’s defense can bite at times. Arkansas picked off Aggies quarterback Kellen Mond twice last week. The Razorbacks are allowing 34.0 points and 351.8 total yards per game.
The Razorbacks are 2-1-1 ATS in their last four games in which they were underdogs at home by at least 35 points.
Alabama wins, 48-10.
