Arkansas Razorbacks vs Florida Gators Betting Picks, Lines, Odds,& Predictions
The Gators (4-1 SU, 3-2 ATS) will look to establish themselves at the top of the SEC East when they host the Razorbacks (3-3 SU, 6-0 ATS) at “The Swamp” on Saturday. Florida enters the game ranked No6 in the country and will look for their third consecutive win after handling Georgia and Missouri. Arkansas stands at .500 at the moment, but they’ve proven that they can play above the expectations covering the spread in all 6 games so far. The Gators hold a convincing 9-2 advantage in all the matchups between the two, but the Hogs surprised them the last time they met, winning 31-10 in 2016.
Arkansas Razorbacks vs Florida Gators Betting Line Movement
With Arkansas’ against the spread record so far, oddsmakers were careful in setting the line which now stands at -17.5 in Florida’s favor. With the Gators scoring for fun this season, the total is set at 60.5, a significant drop-off from the starting 62.5.
Notes On The Arkansas Razorbacks
The Razorbacks managed to overcome Tennessee last week in a game where they trailed 13-0 at halftime only to explode in the third quarter for 24 points and leave it to their defense to take it home. Quarterback Feleipe Franks has provided a steady hand for the Hogs all season long and was pretty efficient against Tennessee throwing for 215 yards and 3 touchdowns and completing 18 out of 25 passes. Franks will be especially motivated on Saturday as he transferred from Florida after losing his starting spot to Kyle Trask following an injury. The hopes of Arkansas to get something out of this game will mainly rest on his shoulders as their running game is below-par this season with only 3.4 yards per carrying.
The Razorbacks will be without their head coach for Sam Pittman for this game after he tested positive for Covid-19 with defensive coordinator Barry Odom taking the reins.
Notes On The Florida Gators
The Gators managed to beat Georgia after going down by 14 to start the game. Fortunately for them, their offense stepped up once again taking the Bulldogs apart for the rest of the first half and scoring 5 touchdowns and one field goal before the break. Florida has now failed to score 40 or more points only once this season and their offense led by Kyle Trask looks unstoppable. Trask had a career-high 474 yards on Saturday throwing for 4 touchdowns. He is now the first-ever SEC QB to throw for 4 or more touchdowns in five consecutive games. The senior quarterback will have to be at top of his game against Arkansas who played pretty good against the pass so far allowing 222.2 yards per game and forcing 12 interceptions. In total, they have generated 15 takeaways this season while allowing only 9 passing touchdowns.
The defense is also showing signs of improvement in the last couple of games and will look to make life difficult for their former teammate Feleipe Franks. They have allowed 29 points per game, but only 45 total in the last two contests.
NCAAF Betting Pick: Arkansas Razorbacks +17.5
There’s no reason to stop riding Arkansas against the spread. The Gators may feel a bit drained after an emotionally charged game last week and the Florida Razorbacks will surely put up some points with their passing offense.
