#football lines bettingThe Arkansas vs Alabama odds matchup is a rivalry that is gaining a bit of steam, but there won’t be much of a punch to this battle. Online sports betting fans know that Alabama is possibly the best team in the nation while the Hogs are still very much a work in progress. The Tide won’t have much trouble in this game.

Arkansas vs Alabama odds: Alabama -15

  • WHAT: NCAA Football betting
  • WHEN: Saturday, September 26th – 3:30 PM ET

  • PICK: Alabama -15

Arkansas vs Alabama odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
The Razorbacks (1-1, 0-1 SEC) are coming off a disappointing loss. The Razorbacks were hoping to make a statement that they’ve arrived in the SEC, but instead they made the statement that they can’t play any defense. The Hogs lost 52- 41 to Georgia.

For Alabama (3-0, 0-0 SEC), everything is falling into place. They have looked so good that they are even getting some first place votes in the polls and some people are starting to wonder if this team could beat Florida. They simply can’t – and won’t – stumble in this game.

Betting Edge: Alabama

Arkansas vs Alabama odds maker breakdown: Offense
Bobby Petrino has found an offense – and a quarterback. There’s no question about that. With Ryan Mallett leading the way and throwing five touchdowns last week, it’s pretty clear that this team can put up points. We’ll see how they do against one of the best defenses in the land on Saturday, though.

NCAA football betting fans have watched Alabama attentively this year and their offense looks stronger this time around. Alabama scored on nine of 11 possession last week and quarterback Greg McIlroy looks really comfortable as a first-time starter. With a fluid ground game and a confident McIlroy, this offense is functioning at a high level right now.

Betting Edge: Even

Arkansas vs Alabama odds maker breakdown: Defense
Arkansas defense was shredded by Georgia last week, which really hurts their chances of winning this game. The Razorbacks gave up 530 yards of total offense including 375 through the air. They better hope to bounce back quickly or they will be embarrassed two weeks in a row.

Sportsbook odds makers know that Alabama has one of the best defenses in the nation – if not the best. They are experienced and dominant at every level. Nick Saban has this team focused and nobody is going to score many points on this Crimson Tide defense at any point this year.

Arkansas vs Alabama State betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
The Razorbacks are getting better in the SEC but last week’s loss to Georgia shows that they have a long way to go. Alabama is among the best the conference has to offer and they are going to manhandle Arkansas this week.
