The Arkansas Razorbacks rank sixth in the country in rushing yards per game

Arkansas has won and covered the number in three consecutive games, including a 52-14 victory over Northern Illinois as 13.5-point home favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total in all four contests this season.  The Razorbacks are averaging 484.5 yards per game, which is important to consider when making your Week 5 college football picks, as that current pace would break the previous school record set in 2010.  It’s also important to point out that head coach Bret Bielema is 31-6 SU in his career during the month of September.  Arkansas is 1-3 SUATS as underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons.

The Razorbacks rank sixth nationally in averaging 324.5 rushing yards per game, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football odds page.  Arkansas’ 2014 FBS opponents have lost just one game to a non-SEC school and are 28-1 overall against non-SEC opponents.  The team’s running backs pace the nation with 17 touchdowns, with Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins leading the way with seven and five scores on the ground respectively.

Texas A&M is 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS after picking up a 58-6 blowout victory over the SMU Mustangs as 33.5-point road favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total of 60.5.  The Aggies are 4-0 for the first time since 2006—winning each game by at least 24 points.  Defensively, the program is much improved in comparison to a year ago, as it has allowed jsut 19 points in its past three games to rank eighth nationally.  Texas A&M is 11-6 SU and 8-9 ATS versus conference opponents over the last two-plus seasons.

The Aggies are being led offensively by signal-caller Kenny Hill, who has thrown for 1,359 yards and 13 touchdowns this season—making most fans in College Station forget about former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel.  Texas A&M is seeking to win its first five games of a season for the first time since 2001.

Sports bettors will likely back the Razorbacks due to the Aggies being 4-9 ATS versus teams with a winning record since 2012.
