Bet The Missouri Tigers at +14 Because…
Okay, so now you know the Missouri Tigers (5-6 SU, 3-8 ATS) are completely desperate. The betting odds are definitely not in their favor, But can they do anything about it against the Razorbacks?
Missouri has lost five of their last six games and looked utterly awful in their 19-8 Week 12 loss against Tennessee while failing to cover the spread as a 6-point home dog in head coach Gary Pinkel’s home finale.
The Tigers were held o just 88 rushing yards and 223 total yards of offense while allowing Tennessee running back Jalen Hurd to rush for 151 yards on 34 carries in the loss
Now the Tigers need a win to avoid just their second losing season in the last 11 years under Pinkel who is retiring at the end of the season because of his bout with lymphoma.
"I certainly didn’t want it to end like this," Pinkel said, drying eyes from tears in the locker room. "I love those kids. Gosh darn it, they know what I’m like."
Even in defeat, Pinkel was honored when senior linemen Evan Boehm and Connor McGovern carried Pinkel off the field.

Bet The Arkansas Razorbacks at -14 Because…
Arkansas (6-5 SU, 6-5 ATS) had its four-game winning streak snapped in their heartbreaking 51-50 Week 12 loss against Mississippi State while failing to cover the college football betting odds as a 5.5-point home favorite last week.
The Razorbacks got a record-setting performance from quarterback Brandon Allen as the senior completed 30 of 43 passes with a school-record seven touchdown passes to become Arkansas’ all-time leader in touchdown passes (63).
"I’ve been through a couple of heartbreakers since coming to Arkansas, but that one might be at the top of it," Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said. "Just to be that close in that type of a game and to walk out empty-handed."
Arkansas allowed Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott to have his own career day by completing 38 of 50 passes for a career-high 508 yards with five touchdown passes while adding another 46 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries.
"I’d say he might be the best player I’ve ever coached," Mullen said. "And if you look at my coaching resume, that’s pretty impressive."
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
I’m surprised that only 65 percent of the betting public likes Arkansas to win this contest because the way I see it, the Tigers are going down and going down hard in this contest.
Arkansas averages a whopping 21.3 points per game more than Missouri and although they allow 14.9 points per game more defensively for a 6.4-point scoring differential, I believe the Razorbacks are going to roll all over the Tigers in this contest after seeing both teams’ Week 12 results.
I know Missouri has gone 15-5 ATS in their last 20 road games, but the Tigers are also just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games.
Arkansas has compiled a nice 5-1 ATS mark in their last six conference games while going 7-2 ATS in their last nine games following an ATS loss and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following an SU loss.
The Arkansas Razorbacks will win this one going away!
