NCAA Free Picks: Bet Arkansas to Cover Against Alabama

After starting the season 2-0, Arkansas has lost four in a row as the team prepares to take on Nick Saban’s squad. The good news is that the Razorbacks have been in nearly every game this season. Arkansas has lost three of their last four by seven or fewer points.

Let’s take a look at my college game day picks for the Arkansas-Alabama game.

Bama QB Jalen Milroe Is Starting to Air It Out

We already knew Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe could hurt opposing defenses with his legs, but now the playmaker is showing off his arm. Milroe threw for 321 yards, three touchdowns and an interception while completing 63.6% of his passes against the Aggies in Week 6.

One of the main beneficiaries of Milroe’s coming out party has been wide receiver Jermaine Burton. The senior posted a sizzling nine receptions for 197 yards and two touchdowns versus Texas A&M.

Can KJ Jefferson Help the Hogs Keep It Close?

Arkansas will lean on quarterback KJ Jefferson as the team attempts to hang with Alabama. Jefferson has thrown for 1,300 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions while completing more than 67% of his passes through the first six games.

The Razorbacks signal-caller has not been as much of a threat this season with his legs. Jefferson has 136 rushing yards and a touchdown. He had 640 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground in 2022.

Arkansas vs Alabama Pick: Bet Hogs to Cover

This matchup for Alabama is sandwiched between two ranked opponents as the Crimson Tide battle Tennessee on Oct. 21. We have seen Alabama allow lesser teams to hang around (see South Florida game). The recipe for Arkansas to do the same is to lean on its defense and a return to form for star running back Raheim Sanders.

The Crimson Tide will get the win, but with Arkansas coach Sam Hartman on the hot seat, I like the Hogs to hang around. Let’s back Arkansas to cover the spread in the Las Vegas college football odds, but Alabama keeps its win streak going.
