Betting Analysis

This game is being held at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, Tennessee.

Kanas State won their last 3 games of the season to become bowl eligible including beating a bowl-bound West Virginia in their season finale. Still, they are a big 13-point betting underdog facing Arkansas in this bowl game.

Arkansas has a solid offense that ranks 33rd in the nation in passing yards per game and 39th in rushing yards per game. Alex Collins was the SEC’s 3rd leading rusher on the season and he rushed for over 100 yards in 5 of the last 6 games on the season. He will face a Kansas State run defense that ranks 51st in the nation.

One player that may have a big game is Razorbacks’ QB Brandon Allen, who passed for 3,125 yards on the season with 29 TD. He has a good WR corps and a solid offensive line and will face a Wildcats’ pass D that was one of the worst in the nation this season ranking 119th out of 127 teams.

Kansas State has to pick it up on defense, as they really cannot rely on their offense, which ranks 107th in the nation in passing yards per game and 74th in rushing yards per game.

One player Arkansas has to keep in check is RB Charles Jones, who led Kansas State with 652 rushing yards and 5 TD. The Wildcats do not air it out much and they have had major injury issues at the QB position, but will face an Arkansas pass D that only ranks 120th in the nation. The strength of the Razorbacks on the defensive side of the ball is their run defense, which ranks 15th in the nation.

Bus Man’s Pick: I think Allen will have a big game, but Kansas State will not get blown out and they will at least cover the 13-point spread.
