Mississippi State travels to Arkansas with a lot on the line. Although neither team has a shot at winning the SEC, both teams are still in the running for a decent bowl game.
This should be an excellent battle between one of the hottest teams in college football against a team with one of the top quarterbacks in college football. The college football week 12 spread favors the Hogs by 3.5-points to beat the Bulldogs. Will Mississippi State come out on top or will Arkansas continue to roll over its opponents?

Bet The Mississippi State Bulldogs Spread at +3.5 Because…
The Bulldogs are 5-2 as an underdog or PK since last season.
Dak Prescott played about as well as he could have against Alabama in Mississippi State’s 6 to 31 loss. Prescott threw for 300 yards. He threw only 1 interception.
Although that doesn’t sound like Prescott played well, football handicappers have to remember that Alabama has the nation’s best defensive line. Prescott’s overall numbers are 2,651 yards, 18 touchdown passes, 2 interceptions, and a completion rate of 64.7%. He also hasn’t played in a game where his average yards per completion were less than 6.2. Prescott has rushed for 432 yards this season.
“I think Dak Prescott is having a heck of a year,” Arkansas defensive coordinator Robb Smith said. “He’s accounted for over 3,000 yards in total offense, running it and throwing it.”
Expect Mississippi State’s excellent quarterback to frustrate Arkansas’ defense this Saturday with both his legs and his arm. Dak Prescott has the ability to take over this game.
Bet The Arkansas Razorbacks at -3.5 Because…
The Razorbacks have the same conference record (4-2) as both LSU & Ole Miss and beat both of them the past two weeks.
The Razorbacks are as hot as any team in the nation. Arkansas has won 4 straight games. The Razorbacks have covered in 4 straight games as well. Arkansas’ best performance occurred in their last game. Facing the LSU Tigers on the road in Baton Rouge as a big 6.5 point underdog, Arkansas rolled over Les Miles’ team in a 31 to 14 beat down. The Razorbacks’ defense played their best game on both sides of the ball this entire season when holding LSU to 330 yards.
“They’re one of the hotter teams, I think, in the SEC and maybe in the nation,” Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said, noting Arkansas’ impressive offensive performances and its strong defensive effort against LSU. ” They’re a well-coached, sound football team.”
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Did the Razorbacks peak against LSU? Or, will the Razorback defense step it up again? Dak Prescott is too good of a quarterback not to put points onto the board against Arkansas’ defense. Expect Prescott to lead the way. My final score prediction is Mississippi State 30, Arkansas 28.
