Arkansas Texas A&M Betting – Razorbacks Face The Aggies In A Nonconference Clash

Posted by Blake Frazier on 9/26/2011 6:38:43 PM

The Texas A&M Aggies have just announced their formal entry into the Southeastern Conference. How fitting that is. A&M gets to play an SEC school this Saturday.
Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Texas A&M Aggies - Saturday, October 1
Sports betting line: Texas A&M -3
Why Arkansas Will Win
The ranks of MLB baseball betting experts know that one bad game against a good team shouldn’t be used to write off a season. Plenty of chatter on Twitter and the rest of the internet really buried Arkansas after the Alabama Crimson Tide disposed of the Razorbacks with relative ease this past Saturday. Alabama cruised to a 38-14 win over the Hogs, punishing Arkansas at every turn with its suffocating and physical defense. Arkansas didn’t belong on the same field as the Tide – that much is true. However, the important point to realize is that Alabama is going to make a lot of opponents look at that bad this season. Arkansas is still a really good team, and head coach Bobby Petrino – who lost to Alabama last September but then guided his team to the Sugar Bowl anyway – should get his boys to rebound this season as well. Tyler Wilson, Arkansas’s quarterback, absorbed a lot of hits against Alabama, but he kept getting back up, a sign of the toughness that will be needed to win against Texas A&M.
Speaking of A&M, the Aggies can’t be expected to win this game… not after they blew a 20-3 halftime lead this past weekend against Oklahoma State. A&M simply doesn’t close down opponents, and it simply doesn’t win big games. This is a big game because it will have BCS (at-large) bowl implications. The loser will be eliminated. Arkansas is certainly the team that should be trusted in a pressure cooker such as this one.
Why Texas A&M Will Win
When you pore over the details attached to this duel and consider your sports bet on Razorbacks-Aggies, you do need to realize that Arkansas is going to be shorthanded. The Hogs got walloped against Alabama and will be very tender to begin with. A lot of college football teams schedule cupcake opponents in between tough contests, but Arkansas is having to play A&M right after going up against Bama. That’s a tough assignment for the Razorbacks, and it should play to the Aggies’ advantage.
The injury situation for the Hogs is dire: Defensive end Jake Bequette might play against A&M, but he missed the Alabama game and can’t be considered anything more than questionable. Moreover, the Hogs are without stud running back Knile Davis, who got injured in August training camp and will miss the entirety of the season. Davis would have been a key difference-maker in this contest, but without his presence, A&M’s defense can focus on Tyler Wilson and emphasize the pass rush. A&M is probably the team with more run-pass balance in this matchup.
Who Will Win
It’s hard to deny that Texas A&M comes up short in big moments. The Aggies choked against Oklahoma State and have to be doubting themselves at the present time. Arkansas got whacked by Alabama, but that loss is easier to take than A&M’s epic collapse. Arkansas will be more confident, and it will stride into Arlington, Texas, and prevail in this neutral-site event.
