Alabama vs Arkansas : Week 6 of the college football season is officially underway and the Alabama Crimson Tide are once again favored to repeat as national champions. However, every week they’ll have to withstand each team’s best shot, including a matchup on the road against the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday at Noon ET. After opening with the Tide as 35-point favorites, the Alabama vs. Arkansas odds have bounced around, with the spread dropping 33.5 before rebounding to the original number. The over-under for total points scored has dropped a full touchdown after opening at 64.5. Before you make your Alabama vs. Arkansas picks, you should see what the SportsLine advanced computer model predicts.Alabama vs Arkansas.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. In the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors.
The model has also been red-hot on its top-rated college football picks this season, nailing its last four in Week 5 to improve its overall record to 49-36 on the year. That run included correctly calling the Under (69.5) and Penn State (+3.5) against the spread in the huge Week 5 showdown between the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions. Anyone who has followed it is way, way up.
Now the model has simulated every single play of Alabama vs. Arkansas. We can tell you the over hits in 59 percent of simulations, but it has also locked in a strong against the spread pick that you can bank on over 60 percent of the time. This pick is available only at SportsLine.
The model knows Alabama’s defense is once again loaded with NFL talent, including Anfernee Jennings and Isaiah Buggs off the edges, and they’ve held opponents to just 13 points per game. However, it’s Alabama’s offense under quarterback Tua Tagovailoa that has made this year’s Crimson Tide truly dominant.Alabama vs Arkansas
Tagovailoa has a staggering 238.3 passer rating, while last year’s starter and current backup Jalen Hurts is at 198.9. Five different Tide receivers have at least 200 yards and seven have found the end zone. On the ground, Najee Harris and Damien Harris have combined for over 550 yards and five scores. That offensive versatility and depth have been key to Nick Saban and company remaining undefeated.
But just because Alabama has been dominant thus far doesn’t mean it can cover a 35-point spread on the road against Arkansas.
The Razorbacks have bad losses to Colorado State and North Texas, and were blown out by Auburn. However, they are coming off their best performance of the year after taking Texas A&M to the wire on the road in a 24-17 loss. And that same A&M team gave the Crimson Tide the closest thing they’ve seen to a fight this year (45-23).
The Razorbacks’ defense recorded three sacks and forced a pair of interceptions against the Aggies. With their home crowd behind them, the Razorbacks will look to duplicate last week’s performance against Alabama’s explosive offense.
