Alabama at Arkansas College Football Betting

Auburn Tigers College Football Betting

Last week the Alabama Crimson Tide faced an improving but outmanned Vanderbilt Commodores program. The Tide rolled as expected for an easy payout. Gamblers are still concerned about the Alabama team that barely got out of Texas alive. Consider that the Longhorns had the Crimson Tide on the ropes. But Texas let Alabama off the hook at the climatic moment. But it was a lesson about softer and lesser teams being able to compete with Nick Saban’s powerhouse dynasty. The Arkansas Razorbacks are coming off a gut-wrenching loss against the Texas A&M Aggies. Specifically, that rivalry matchup at Jerry World served as a proving ground.

Alabama Crimson Tide Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Alabama Crimson Tide of the SEC will face the Arkansas Razorbacks of the SEC. At DWR Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Kickoff time is 3:30 p.m. ET, with television coverage on CBS.

Gamblers have conflicting views on the Razorbacks and Crimson Tide. Certainly, Arkansas is a rapidly improving program. But they are not yet at the level of Alabama. Especially roster-wise. The Crimson Tide has a deeper roster and greater confidence as a dynasty. Alabama will be overpriced for this game at Fayetteville. Cause by their brand as the ultimate college football program. In comparison, the Razorbacks could provide strong value as a quality home dog.

Last game, the Arkansas Razorbacks lost 23-21 against the Texas A&M Aggies as 1-point dogs. The game went under the total of 51.5. Arkansas has a record of 2-1straight up, 2-2 against the spread, and 2-1-1 over/under the total. Arkansas ranks 24th for total offense, 74th for passing, 8th for rushing, and 56th for scoring. Defensively they rank 94th overall, 126th against the pass, 29th against the rush, and 77th for points allowed. Also, Arkansas ranks 116th for turnovers lost and 105th for takeaways.

Demani Richardson picked up an Arkansas and went 82 yards on a wild fumble return touchdown for No. 23 Texas A&M. KJ Jefferson lost the ball when inexplicably trying to leap over the blocking linemen on a first-down play from 3 when Arkansas had a chance for a 21-7 lead late in the first half. The Arkansas quarterback ended up going straight up, and the ball was knocked out of his hands by linebacker Chris Russell.

Richardson had the big return while Acane ran for 159 yards and a touchdown as Texas A&M scored 23 consecutive points after falling behind early, eventually beating the 10th-ranked Razorbacks 23-21 on Saturday night.

Texas A&M quarterback Max Johnson Johnson, the LSU transfer, was 11-of-21 passing for 151 yards in his second A&M start. Jefferson completed 12 of 19 passes for 171 yards and ran 18 times for 105 yards. Jefferson had a 6-yard scoring run with 10 minutes left in the game.

The Aggies recovered from their slow start offensively when they went 3-and-out on their first four drives. They trailed 14-0 before getting their initial first down on a 63-yard run by Achane midway through the second quarter.

The Razorbacks missed a chance to have consecutive 4-0 starts for the first time since 1988-89, which was still a couple of seasons before joining the SEC. The Hogs haven't won their first two SEC games since 2006. They got to 4-0 overall last year with a win over the Aggies, who had won nine in a row in the series before that.

Alabama Crimson Tide Weekly Recap

Last game, the Alabama Crimson Tide rolled 55-3 against the Vanderbilt Commodores as 40.5-point home favorites. The game went under the total of 61.5. Alabama has a record of 4-0 straight up, 3-1 against the spread, and 1-3 over/under the total. Alabama ranks 5th for total offense, 32nd for passing, 10th for rushing, and 6th for scoring.

Heisman Trophy quarterback Bryce Young passed for a season-high 385 yards and four touchdowns as No. 2 Alabama beat Vanderbilt Saturday night in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams.

It was the first 300-yard game of the season for the reigning Heisman winner, who didn't play in the fourth quarter yet still completed 25 of 36 passes. It also was a different cast of characters for a Tide offense that lost its top three receivers, with two more injured, and had felt their absence in the first few games.

It was the most passing yards for Young since perhaps locking up the Heisman with 421 yards against Georgia in the SEC championship game. Alabama outgained Vandy 628-129 in total yards. Ja'Corey Brooks had a career night in the first half when he had six catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns.

Jahmyr Gibbs, who started the first three games at tailback, mostly lined up at receiver while Jase McClellan took over in the backfield. McClellan ran for 78 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Gibbs caught three passes for 43 yards and a score.
