Alabama vs. Arkansas Game Odds and Betting Analysis by Experts

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Arkansas Razorbacks Latest Odds and Picks

The legal sport betting odds favor the Alabama Crimson Tide over the Arkansas Razorbacks by a whopping 34.5 points. It’s business as usual for the Tide. However, head coach Nick Saban is not looking past the Razorbacks. “This is what I call a little bit of a trap game for us,” Saban said, “in terms of all the folks out there look at who they’ve played and what the scores were and don’t get prepared the way you need to get prepared to go play to your standard and the level you have to play to beat any team in the SEC on the road.”

“I look at every game as just another challenge,” linebacker Christian Miller said. “Don’t look records or numbers or … anytime I play a game, I just want to play my best game and do what I can to help the team, so I think that’s everybody’s approach. I think we just want to go into it, no matter of records or numbers, we just want to go into it and play our best game and play a complete game.” Well, you may not care about, say, cover the best online sportsbooks spread, but we do.

Betting Alabama

The Tide have won 15 of their last 16 on the road. And they have covered the legal sport betting spread in nine of those trips. Most recently, Alabama pounded the crap out of Ole Miss 62-7 in Week 3 at Vaught–Hemingway Stadium. Starting QB and Heisman hopeful Tua Tagovailoa has 14 touchdowns and no picks on 1161 passing yards. Defensively, the Tide have allowed just 13 points per game.

Betting Arkansas

The Razorbacks beat Eastern Illinois 55-20 as a legal sport betting favorite in Week 1. However, that was the proverbial flash in the pan. Arkansas’s season went downhill from there. The Razorbacks have been outscored 136-64 in the following four games. They are 4-5 SU at home going back to last season. And have lost their last four against SEC teams at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Starting QB Ty ‘Toy’ Storey has four TDs and four picks on 631 yards through the air.
