Arkansas has defeated ranked opponents in consecutive games for the first time since 2011, as it outscored the LSU Tigers and Mississippi Rebels by a combined 47-0 margin at home, while both affairs went UNDER the betting total. The Razorbacks forced six turnovers in a Southeastern Conference game for the first time since causing five on Oct. 6, 2012, which is important to consider when making your Week 14 NCAA football betting picks, while the stop unit has forced the opponent to a three-and-out on its game-opening drive for the fourth consecutive affair. Arkansas is 9-2 ATS on the season, including point-spread covers in three of its four road games.
The Razorbacks have a punishing running game that features two quality backs, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NCAA football betting lines, with Jonathan Williams leading the way in registering his first 1,000-yard season on campus. Arkansas also has the ability to hand the ball off to Alex Collins, who has scored 12 touchdowns this season and hit pay dirt 16 times in his career.
Missouri is one of the hottest teams in the SEC after securing its fifth consecutive win last Saturday, as it returns home after picking up a 29-21 victory over the Tennessee Volunteers as five-point road underdogs. The Tigers have won their last 10 true road games, which established a new school record, while Gary Pinkel is the winningest head coach in school history. Defensively, the team is known for getting after opposing quarterbacks, as the stop unit tied a season-high with six sacks. Missouri is 7-4 ATS through 11 games, but has covered the number in just two of six home games.
The Tigers finished with a season-high 12 tackles-for-loss last time out—a statistical category that could decide this matchup in facing a run-first offense on the other side. Missouri can clinch its second straight trip to the SEC championship game with a victory in this spot, while it entered last week ranked 20th in the College Football Playoff standings.
Sports bettors will likely back the Razorbacks due to their 8-1 ATS record when playing on turf during the 2014 campaign.
