This is going to be quite the easy call in our eyes to make, and we think that the whole world is going to just overthink this game. The oddsmakers have lined this game exactly right at three TDs, and within a field goal one way or the other, that’s how we expect it to go. However, there is a hidden gem of an ‘under’ play waiting in the wings. Yes, Alabama, has beaten the crap out of two teams this year, and there is no end in sight to the carnage that the team is going to create. This is still an SEC game though, and an SEC West game at that. The Tide aren’t going to be able to put 45 on the board in all likelihood. Arkansas still has an SEC defense. Of course, this offense is really going to be questionable at best after losing QB Tyler Wilson for the week, and we just don’t see how any freshman making his first career start is going to get anything going against one of the best defenses assembled in the country. The Razorbacks aren’t going to score a bunch. The Tide aren’t going to be able to run it up. It’s the perfect mix for another game that should be played in the 40s.
Alabama @ Arkansas Pick: Alabama/Arkansas Under 53.5
Alabama @ Arkansas Score Prediction: Alabama 31 – Arkansas 10
