Why Mississippi State can cover
Mississippi State is in an excellent scheduling spot on Saturday afternoon, playing its third consecutive home game against an Arkansas team that is having to recover mentally and physically from its game against Alabama. The Bulldogs are also coming off their best game of the year, lighting up the scoreboard in their 42-24 win over Texas A&M. Their lone loss this season came on the road, as they have won all three of their home games by at least 18 points.
Junior quarterback Will Rogers has thrown for 1,715 yards and 19 touchdowns, ranked third in the nation in passing yards and tied for first in touchdowns. Running back Dillon Johnson has provided a lift when needed, averaging 6.0 yards per carry on 50 attempts. Arkansas has gone 2-16 in its last 18 road games, while Mississippi State has covered the spread at an 8-3-1 clip in its last 12 games overall.
Why Arkansas can cover
Any wager made on Mississippi State at this point is a buy-high spot, as the Bulldogs were only 5.5-point favorites early in the week. They are receiving plenty of love from the public after beating Texas A&M in decisive fashion, but they also lost to LSU by 15 points three weeks ago. Arkansas has enough firepower to keep pace on Saturday, as it has scored at least three touchdowns in all five of its games this season.
The Razorbacks are led by junior quarterback KJ Jefferson, but he is questionable to play on Saturday due to a head injury. Running back Raheim Sanders is capable of picking up the slack, rushing for 609 yards and four touchdowns this season. Arkansas is 8-3 in its last 11 games, so this spread is disrespectful to the Razorbacks regardless of Jefferson’s status.
