4* Free Week 8 NCAA Betting Pick: UAPB +51.5
This line opened with Arkansas being enormous favorites which seems fair considering this is a matchup between a 1-4 FCS team and a nationally ranked SEC team at home.
Even though this is the case I still see this line as too large for the Razorbacks to run out of the gate and cover. Arkansas has lost their last 3 games with 2 of those losses featuring the offense unable to score at a pace we’d seen early in the season.
Arkansas doesn’t have an air raid offense and are much more comfortable with KJ Jefferson and Trelon Smith doing the work on the ground. This will account for some clock chewing and I don’t see Sam Pittman forcing the issue against the Golden Lions.
The Razorbacks will have no trouble in this game but they’ll certainly take their foot off the gas and coast once they have a substantial lead as they will need to save their players for their remaining SEC schedule.
Take Arkansas-Pine Bluff to muster a score and keep this spread within reach.
