Arkansas hits the road for the first of four conference road games, as it attempts to bounce back from a 45-33 setback to the Texas A&M Aggies as 13.5-point home underdogs last Saturday. The Razorbacks have five student-athletes that hail from Florida, which is important to consider when making your college football expert picks, as they’ve accounted for 37 percent of the team’s all-purpose yards and 29 percent of the scoring. It’s important to point out that the program is the only one in the country that will play preseason top 10 opponents in four consecutive weeks. Arkansas is 0-7 SU and 2-5 ATS as underdogs of 10.5 to 21 points the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 6-1 in that situation.
The Razorbacks are the only team in the Southeastern Conference that has a 100-yard rushing game from a freshman and a freshman with a 100-yard receiving game. Arkansas is the only team in the NCAA leading its conference in sacks per game and sacks allowed per game, which is important to consider when looking over the college football odds page. Running back Alex Collins is the first freshman in SEC history to begin his career with three straight 100-yard games on the ground.
Florida owns a 8-1 all-time record in this series, including a perfect 3-0 mark at The Swamp, as it returns home from a 24-7 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats as 11-point road favorites last Saturday. The Gators have a rushing and passing touchdown in all four games this year—after accomplishing that type of feat just seven times a season ago. Offensively, the team has tallied three 200-yard rushing games during the 2013 campaign, while it paces the nation in stopping the run. Florida is 5-1 SU and 2-4 ATS as favorites of 10.5 to 21 points since 2011.
The Gators have built a reputation under head coach Will Muschamp as being one of the better stop units in the entire country, as it leads the conference in allowing just 202.5 yards per game. Through four games, Florida has allowed opposing signal-callers to complete just 48.8 percent of its passes. The team leads the nation in interceptions and return yards in that situation since the 2008 season.
Sports bettors will likely back the Razorbacks due to the Gators being 0-6 ATS in their last six home games.
