Why is the tu/Arkansas line only -6.5
FPI only gives Arkansas a 33% chance. Sagarin has it even lower.

t.u. is ranked 15 with a ranked win while Arkansas had some trouble with Rice.

What am I missing here?

Road game hostile environment against a team that played several top SEC teams tough last year
TX has a RS Fr Qb and new coaching staff

re: Why is the tu/Arkansas line only -6.5
Because half of the money is coming in on one side.. and half of it is coming in on the other side..

Texas should win this game, but I 100% believe that Arkansas can win this game.

The crowd will be electric. Texas has a new coach, with a new offense, and a new QB. There are a lot of question marks.

On top of that, Odom actually played Sark pretty good last year. The score was lopsided, but it wasn’t really because of the offense. They had a punt return and several turnovers which gave them a short field.

Mac Jones had 0 passing touchdowns
The longest pass play was like 23 yards

That being said, the RBs did have a big day. But Texas doesn’t have that OL.

Odom will force a young QB to drive down the field and not make any mistakes.. It’s an interesting matchup that could go either way.

The other side of the ball is where I think Texas wins this game. I think Jefferson throws some picks.. and I think Texas scores on special teams.

Texas 45
Arkansas 17

I watched Arkansas vs Rice last night. As much as I’d like to see the hogs win against TX, they were bad against Rice, I mean weak in the LOS. …It took two ints for AK to win.

Unless TX is weaker than Rice, I don’t see AK winning.,too bad..

Jefferson will spend most of the game lying on his back in the backfield looking at the sky.

Home. If we were away it would be at least -13.5+. First sell out, Pittman covers spread often.

It's a TD basically on the road. Texass hasn't exactly been nails on the road.

That can not be denied but much of that was because of Herman's lack of discipline. I believe Sark will correct this.
