Hair of the dog: Florida Gators versus UARK Razorbacks
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
The Florida Gators will be the favorite of people betting on college football when they visit the Arkansas Razorbacks at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville on Saturday, November 5th. Here are the NCAA football betting odds for the game:
Florida -4½ (-110) 47 (-110) -200
The Gators attended the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party on Saturday, and as I have found out myself, a little sauce in the blood doesn’t have to get in the way of getting some work done. And Florida’s defense went to work against the Georgia Bulldogs, limiting Georgia running back Nick Chubb to 20 yards on nine carries, shook QB Jacob Eason up like he was a good martini. The Gators forced seven three-and-outs and stopped two fourth-down plays on the Bulldogs last two drives. Florida held Georgia to 164 yards, and while the former’s own 231 yard production was no great shakes either, it sufficed to defeat the Bulldogs 24-10.
The Razorbacks had a pretty good reason to drown their sorrows as well. Not only did Arkansas drop off the top 25, they were almost wiped off the face of the earth by the Auburn Tigers on Saturday before last. In other words, the Razorbacks got Au-burned. Arkansas allowed 543 yards rushing, and produced a meager 215 total yards. “I am just at a loss for words at what happened,” Razorbacks wide receiver Keon Hatcher said. Well, there’s this thing called a thesaurus… oh, wait. Never mind. The final score was a whopping 3-56.
And now it’s time for the betting on college football part of our broadcast, brought to you by the letters A and S, and the number 7. The Gators are averaging 29.4 points and 398.6 yards per game. QB Luke Del Rio has completed 57.9% of his passes with eight touchdowns and six interceptions. Jordan Scarlett has run for 468 yards and 6 touchdowns. Antonio Callaway has 27 catches and two touchdowns. Florida is allowing 11.7 points and 239.9 yards per game with 10 interceptions, 3 fumble recoveries, and 21 sacks. Jarrad Davis has 55 tackles. The Gators are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games on the road, 10-4 ATS in their last 14 conference games, and 11-5 ATS against a team with a winning record.
But wait! There’s more sweet betting on college nothings I’d like to whisper in your ear. The Razorbacks is averaging 30.9 points and 416.8 yards per game. QB Austin Allen has completed 62.2% of his passes with 18 touchdowns and seven picks, and has been sacked 21 times due to his deer-in-the-headlights tendencies. Rawleigh Williams has run for 807 yards and five scores. Drew Morgan has 41 catches and two TDs. Hatcher has 28, what’s the word? ah, yes, receptions and five touchdowns. Arkansas is allowing 31.4 points and 428 yards per game with seven interceptions, seven fumble recoveries, and 15 sacks. Brooks Ellish has 57 tackles. The Gators are 4-1 ATS after a loss, 10-4 ATS after a game they didn’t cover the spread, and 1-4 ATS in the last five games.
