Bet on Ole Miss -7.5 Because…
Ole Miss’s offense is one of the best in the nation. The Rebels put up 43 against Alabama in a 43 to 48 loss on Sept. 17. In that game, Ole Miss forced Alabama to outscore them. It was a brilliant display of offensive firepower. In 2 straight wins going into this game versus Arkansas, Ole Miss has beaten Georgia 45 to 14 and Memphis 48 to 28.
Bet on Arkansas +7.5 Because…
Arkansas’ defense can do just enough for its offense to outscore the Rebels. Arkansas allows an average of 398.2 total yards per game. That looks bad. In reality, that’s not bad at all. Opponents only pass for 218 yards per game against the Rebels. Arkansas allows 27.5 points per game.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
If Arkansas’ defense can just slow down Ole Miss, the Razorbacks could pull off the moneyline upset. On offense Arkansas averages 35 points per game. The Razorbacks average 176.3 yards per game on the ground and 272 yards per game through the air.
Granted, Arkansas’ defense isn’t much better than Ole Miss’s. But the Razorbacks do take on the Rebels at home in this game. That could be enough for Arkansas to beat Ole Miss straight up.
In any case, the public appears to have this one opposite from what the pro bettors are likely to do. Arkansas is at +7.5 in this game even though 65% are taking the points. The pro bettors could bet the line down to Arkansas +6.5 by kick-off.
I am bypassing the Week 7 college football spread and betting the Razorbacks to win straight up.
