NCAA football gambling respect continues to grow for the #12 Arkansas Razorbacks as they are one of the most improved teams on the NCAA football wagering board.
The Arkansas Razorbacks will host the LSU Tigers on Saturday with a telecast on CBS set for 3:35 PM ET. Sports-Gambling opened with Arkansas as a 4 point favorite.
The LSU Tigers have a college football betting record of 10-1 straight up and 5-6 against the spread with 7 of their games going under the total. The Tigers only loss was a road game at #2 Auburn. LSU has won their last 3 games since that loss and is coming off a 43-36 home win over Ole Miss although they failed to cover as 14 point chalks.
Head coach Les Miles has gained a lot of respect over the past month after being the butt of jokes and derisions as his “Mad Hatter” reputation has been enhanced in a positive way with courageous play calls and a talented team that plays hard for him.
The LSU defense ranks 5th in the nation while the offense struggled early but has improved to rank 52nd for points scored. Jordan Jefferson has basically won the starting quarterback job with better play this month and Steven Ridley has 968 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns.
The Arkansas Razorbacks have a college football gambling record of 9-2 straight up and 8-3 against the spread with 8 of their games going over the total. Arkansas is coming off a 38-31 overtime win at Mississippi State to extend their winning streak to 5 games. The Hogs only losses were against Alabama and Auburn.
Arkansas has the 3rd ranked passing attack in the land with quarterback Ryan Mallett’s 3272 yards and 27/9 touchdown/interception ratio. Knile Davis completes the explosive attack with 1031 yards rushing and a 7.0 yards per carry average with 12 TD’s. The tough LSU defense will have all it can handle against the Hogs in this one.
The dog has covered 4 of the last 5 NCAA football gambling matchups in this series with the road team getting the money in 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams as the series has gone over the total 4 straight games.
