That’s not necessarily to say that Arkansas is all that dangerous as far as the straight-up victory is concerned; in fact, the Hogs have lost 16 straight SEC contests. But they do know how to run the football, and when that happens there is always the possibility that they can run some clock. This game takes place in Starkville, and football betting action gets underway at 7:15 PM ET.

MSU is #1 in both major polls, as well as the new college playoff rankings that were released this week. It’s a tight squeeze in the SEC, as going into the weekend, Auburn was #3, Ole Miss #4 and Alabama #6.

In the NCAA odds that a been posted on this game by the people at BetAnySports, Mississippi State is a 10-point favorite, with a total of 57 points listed.

Brett Bielema is the coach at Arkansas, and many people remember him when he was the head man at Wisconsin. And if they do, they know that his game is to pound the ball into the line. Arkansas is not necessarily fancy, and, well, when they are in a Southeastern Conference game, they haven’t been effective enough to win either. But they did take Texas A&M into overtime before losing, and they gave Alabama a very big scare on October 11 at home when they lost 14-13.

In fact, Arkansas has actually covered six of its last seven games against the football betting pointspread.

However, in that game against the Crimson Tide, they were held to 89 yards on the ground. Will they get more of a problem for Mississippi State? Well, the Bulldogs have allowed only 3.4 yards per carry on the season, although there have been three different occasions this year where they have permitted 500 or more yards on the part of their opponents. And their performance last week against Kentucky undoubtedly made a lot of BetAnySports Asian Sportsbooks customers unhappy, as they barely missed covering in the football odds. In fact, they suffered a scare against the Wildcats. But MSU has indeed covered ten of its last 12 games.

Quite obviously, Arkansas has to be on the lookout for the multiple talents of quarterback Dak Prescott, who is one of the leading Heisman Trophy candidates, but Prescott has had a bad ankle, to the extent where he spent most of the week in a walking boot. If this restricts his mobility, football bettors might expect that more of the burden would be placed on running back Josh Robinson, who was averaged 7.5 yards per carry.
