Betting on the Arkansas Razorbacks (1-2)
After blowing out Eastern Illinois in Week 1, the Razorbacks have suffered two successive embarrassing losses to Colorado State (34-27) and North Texas (44-17). Coming off a stunning loss to North Texas, a win against Auburn will not only uplift their moral but give their chances for a Bowl game appearance a good shot in the arm. Cole Kelley started the game as Arkansas’ quarterback, but was later subbed by Connor Noland after throwing four interceptions. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the true freshman Noland will be the one thrown under center by Arkansas against the Tigers, though, he also gave up an interception against North Texas. Arkansas didn’t have a reliable pass protection in the first place, as it allowed the Mean Green to compile five sacks. The Razorbacks need those offensive line cracks plugged just before the meeting with Auburn, which has four sacks on the season. With a seemingly erratic passing game, the Razorbacks might opt to run the ball more in Jonesboro against Auburn.
Arkansas is 3-3 ATS in its last six meetings with Auburn.
Betting on the Auburn Tigers (2-1)
Auburn failed to notch its third-straight win of the season after getting upset by No. 12 LSU, 22-21, via a 42-yard field goal make by Cole Tracy last Saturday. Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham had a slow start, as he went 0-of-4 with an interception in his first four throws, but eventually got his rhythm, though, he left much to be desired from his performance. He finished the game with 198 passing yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions on 16-of-28 completions. Auburn, however, always has running back JaTarvious Whitlow to help move the chains out of the backfield. White rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown against LSU. He now has 226 rushing yards on 36 carries in the last two games. Defensively, the Tigers will be looking forward to slowing down Arkansas’ attack that looked pathetic opposite North Texas’ stop unit that only ranked 97th last year in total defense.
Auburn is 9-1 SU in its last 10 games as the home team.
Auburn wins, 37-17.
