Auburn is 7-1 in head coach Gus Malzahn’s first year on campus, while it has won 83 consecutive games when scoring 30 or more points, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines in Week 10. The Tigers are minus-one in turnover margin, but they’ve outscored opponents by a 52-20 margin off of miscues during the 2013 campaign. Offensively, the team leads the Southeastern Conference in averaging 315.4 rushing yards per game—more than 90 yards better than second-place Missouri in that category. Auburn is 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS in November the last two-plus seasons.
The Tigers’ 24 rushing touchdowns and 12 passing touchdowns through eight games this season surpass the program’s totals in both of those categories from a year ago. Auburn has posted the biggest turnaround in the nation through eight games, as it was 1-7 at this juncture in 2012. The team holds a 11-10-1 overall advantage in this series, but is 4-4 in games played at Fayetteville.
Arkansas returns to action following its first bye week under first-year head coach Bret Bielema, as the school will be playing its fifth straight ranked opponent, which is the longest such stretch in school history and tied for the longest in the SEC since 1992. Including season openers, midweek games, bye weeks and bowl games, Bielema has tallied a 16-6 record with more than one week to prepare for an opponent. Arkansas is 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS after two or more consecutive SU losses since 2011.
The Razorbacks plus-14 sack differential is the highest in the SEC and tied for the 11th-highest mark nationally. Arkansas is the only team with two rushers ranking in the top nine in the conference, with true freshman Alex Collins being third, while sophomore Jonathan Williams is seventh. It’s still important to point out that the school is one of two in the country to start at least two true freshmen on the offensive line and one of 13 to have started any true freshmen in that spot.
Sports bettors will likely back the Razorbacks due to the Tigers being 4-7 ATS on the road the last two-plus seasons.
