The Alabama vs Arkansas predictions will most likely favor the Alabama Crimson Tide, but there is reason to believe the Razorbacks can make a statement.
The Arkansas Razorbacks are off arguably the worst loss in the school’s history. They will be playing without their best player as quarterback Tyler Wilson will be out for the game. No one is giving the Razorbacks a shot at beating the Tide and the odds on Alabama vs Arkansas are in double-digits as the Hogs are 20-point underdogs for this battle.
With all of that being said, the Hogs have a chance of winning. They are just one of the many underdogs that can win on Saturday.
The Razorbacks are not without superstars on offense. Brandon Mitchell is a stud athlete and if the Razorbacks decide for him to play quarterback he can perform admirably. If the Hogs go with Brandon Allen, they have a quality, but young superstar in the making. If Allen gets the nod, Mitchell will play wide receiver and has the size to make an impact against the Crimson Tide background.
Mitchell is getting reps at quarterback and the choice will be a game day decision.
The Razorbacks have a tandem of solid running backs to carry the load out of the backfield with Knile Davis and Dennis Johnson. Both backs have super star potential and if they can find some holes to run through they can control the line of scrimmage, open up the passing game and control the time of possession.
The Razorbacks are 20-8-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 29 home games against a team with a winning road record and 20-6 ATS in their last 26 home games. The Razorbacks are a desperate team and they have the season on the line.
The Razorbacks have no chance of a national championship or the SEC crown if they don’t win this game. They are embarrassed and beat down and all they have left is a shot at this game. If they win this game the Louisiana-Monroe game will be an afterthought.
If they lose this season is over. This team has heart and desire and will go all out to keep this game close.
