The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past six-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $3,000 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed the model has seen huge returns.
Now the model has dialed in on Arkansas vs. Missouri and just revealed its coveted picks and predictions. You can head to SportsLine now to see all of the model’s college football picks. Now, here are the college football odds and trends for Missouri vs. Arkansas:
Arkansas has a dynamic dual-threat quarterback in KJ Jefferson. The 6-foot-3, 242-pound junior has completed 165-of-244 passes (67.6%) for 2,149 yards and 20 touchdowns with just three interceptions while rushing for 472 yards and six scores in eight games. Despite missing two contests, Jefferson is one of two SEC quarterbacks with 20 passing touchdowns and five or more rushing scores this season.
In addition, Arkansas has the potential to get pressure when Missouri drops back to pass. Led by former Alabama linebacker Drew Sanders (who has a team-high 8.5 sacks), the Razorbacks lead the SEC and are tied for fourth nationally in sacks (37). That’s the most by an Arkansas team since 2010 (37 sacks in 13 games).
Missouri has one of the best defenses in the SEC. The Tigers rank fourth in the conference in scoring defense (21.4 points per game), rushing defense (86.3 yards per game), passing defense (192.4 yards per game) and total defense (304.1 yards per game). Last week Missouri gave up just 259 yards and 14 points to New Mexico State.
In addition, the Tigers excel at getting into an opponent’s backfield. They average 7.2 tackles for loss per game, which leads the conference and ranks 15th in the country. Ty’Ron Hopper leads the team with 11.5 tackles for loss.
SportsLine’s model is leaning Under on the point total, projecting the teams to combine for 52 points. It also has an against-the-spread pick that cashes in well over 50% of simulations. You can see the model’s Missouri vs. Arkansas pick only at SportsLine.
