Alabama Back On A Roll After Texas Scare

The Crimson Tide weren’t at their best in a Week 2 road matchup against the Texas Longhorns, narrowly escaping with a 20-19 win in a game that was supposed to be a lot easier as 21-point favorites.

It has been smooth sailing for the Crimson Tide since that upset scare, however, as Alabama has cruised to a 63-7 win over the LA-Monroe Warhawks and a 55-3 win over the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Bryce Young went 25-for-36 with 385 passing yards, four touchdown passes and no interceptions in last week’s win over Vanderbilt. After blowing out three weak teams at home through the first four weeks of the 2022 season, Alabama will now face a more legitimate test on the road against the Razorbacks in their second road game of the campaign.

Arkansas Fell Just Short Against Texas A&M

KJ Jefferson completed 12 of his 19 pass attempts for 171 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday against the Texas A&M Aggies. Jefferson also rushed the ball 18 times for 105 yards and a touchdown, but despite the junior quarterback’s efforts, the Razorbacks fell shy of upsetting the Aggies in a 23-21 loss at AT&T Stadium.

Bettors who got on Arkansas early in the week at +2.5 cashed their bets, but those who were on the closing line of Arkansas +1.5 also fell just short of a victory.

Prior to the loss to Texas A&M, Arkansas was 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS with an average of 34.2 points per game scored over that stretch. When these teams met last season in Alabama, Arkansas was competitive as a 20.5-point underdog in a game that eventually went Alabama’s way by a final score of 42-35.

Alabama: Keys To Win

While Arkansas has taken great strides under head coach Sam Pittman, the Razorbacks are a clear step behind the nation’s elite like Alabama. If the Crimson Tide play to their potential and don’t have issues on the road again like they did against Texas, they should be able to get the win and cover as an Alabama vs Arkansas prediction.

Arkansas: Keys To Win

Arkansas’ defense is allowing 26 points per game this season and isn’t likely to fare well against this high-powered Crimson Tide attack. It will be up to KJ Jefferson and the offense to keep up with Alabama if Arkansas hopes to cover the spread or try to score an upset as an Alabama vs Arkansas pick at home.
