The Arkansas Razorbacks and Mississippi State Bulldogs seek their first SEC win on Saturday.

Favored to win at -6 with the sportsbook, Arkansas looks to put last week’s loss to Alabama behind them.

The Bulldogs come off a win, but the level of opposition improves significantly.

Confidence Returns for Bulldogs

After suffering three consecutive losses, the Bulldogs bounced back with a 41-28 win over Western Michigan.

The sportsbook is giving them some respect at +6 against Arkansas. Bettors could use the Alabama games as the best guide.

The Bulldogs played the Crimson Tide two weeks ago and lost 40-17 at home, whereas Arkansas played last week and lost by three points on the road.

Despite having a much different time against Alabama, College Football betting markets aren’t letting the Bulldogs out of their sights.

Quarterback Will Rogers had three touchdowns last week, and that should give them confidence. However, our worry is that it came against a poor Broncos outfit, which had yet to win on the road.

Better Than They Look

At 2-5 and 0-4 in the SEC, it would be logical to assume the Razorbacks are a bad team. However, we think they’re much better than that.

College football picks against the spread shouldn’t write off the -6 favorites, who have lost four of their last five games by seven or fewer points.

They lost the last two games on the road against Ole Miss and Alabama by a combined margin of 10. That’s a good form guide, especially for a team with two wins on their record.

Being on a losing streak doesn’t do much for confidence levels, but they pushed a nationally-ranked team close, and they should be proud.

We knew it would be a tough task for us,” Arkansas coach Sam Pittman told the media. “But we wanted to be in it in the fourth quarter with an opportunity to win it, and that’s what we were.

We thought Arkansas would have been at least a touchdown favorite, so bettors can find value with the current line.

We expect late betting online movement to come for the home side.
