Overview of College Football Picks for Tigers and Razorbacks
This Saturday, the LSU Tigers will be heading on the road to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks, and this game is shaping up to be one of the best games of the weekend.
College football picks can be tricky. LSU has found a way to win their close games, scoring a touchdown against Mississippi late in the game, resulting in a 43-36 win. Arkansas displayed some endurance as they went into double overtime against Mississippi State last week. Between these two teams, LSU is in the lead overall, although Arkansas has won two out of their last three meetings. It would’ve been three out of three, but they barely lost last year 33-30.
The odds for this game place the Arkansas Razorbacks as the favorite by 3.5-points.
College Football Picks Overview for LSU Tigers
LSU is currently sitting on a season record of 10-1, succeeding in finding ways to win their games. In last week’s game, quarterback Jordan Jefferson completed 13 out of 17 attempts for 254 yards with one touchdown and one interception. In this game, the Tigers will need to keep their offensive momentum in order to overpower a strong Arkansas offensive line-up.
Keep an eye on LSU who should be focused on running the ball, considering the fact that Arkansas just allowed Mississippi State to run 262 yards.
College Football Picks Overview for Arkansas Razorbacks
Last week, Arkansas trailed against Mississippi State by 21-17, but near the end, they took a lead with a score of 31-21. Unfortunately, Mississippi State managed to rebound and tie it up, driving them into overtime. Neither team scored in overtime, leading to a second overtime where quarterback Ryan Mallett ended the game with a successful pass.
Mallett and the Razorbacks will face their toughest challenge yet. The LSU Tigers are currently ranked in fourth for their pass defense, allowing only 152 yards per game, and ranked fifth for total offense.
What’s the choice? The Arkansas Razorbacks will be able to cover the spread even though LSU’s defense has been great this season. It will be a close game, but the Razorbacks will manage to pull ahead late in the game just like last week.
