Arkansas +12

The Arkansas Razorbacks have been running the football very well. Bret Bielema knows how to coach teams to run the football, as we saw for many years at Wisconsin.

Arkansas runs the football well and that tends to keep them in the game.

Florida is a team that doesn’t typically blow out the opponent. The Gators win with good defense and timely scores. Dominique Easley was the team’s top defensive lineman, but he is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Without Easley, I do think this Arkansas team will have a chance to put up some rushing yards on Florida.

The Arkansas defense was torched by Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M last week, but who doesn’t get torched by that offense? This is a unit that is improving, and Florida’s offense still needs a lot of work.

The Gators can’t throw it very well, and the strength of Arkansas’ defense is their front seven.

Both teams will be running the ball a lot here, so points should be at a premium. These low scoring games can be a great chance to play the underdog.

The Razorbacks are being given 12 points by the oddsmakers here, and that is plenty for me to grab the points on the underdog.

Take Arkansas. Good Luck, Razor Ray.
