Arkansas Great At Covering vs the Big 12

Arkansas Football

The Arkansas Razorbacks continue to be one of the toughest teams in the nation to play, ask anyone in the SEC, and they have proven this when they square off against Big 12 opponents. Arkansas is 7-2 ATS in their last nine games facing off against Big 12 foes. The Razorbacks will take on the Kansas State Wildcats in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in Arkansas’ past seven games in January.
  • K-State is 11-0 SU when coming off a win as an underdog.
  • The underdog has covered in six of the last eight Liberty Bowls.

Arkansas have ended the season with a respectable 7-5 record, but they went 5-1 in the final six weeks with wins over Ole Miss and LSU with their loss coming by one-point. Brandon Allen was the third-leading passer in the SEC this season and has two 400-plus passing yards and six-plus touchdown cgames in his past four appearances.

Kansas State was on the outside looking in, but a three-game winning streak to end the season (plus an amazing APR) got them to the bowl games. It will be important for K-State to try and solidify their secondary this season as injuries have riddled them and caused them to be in the bottom 10 in passing yards allowed.
