Texas vs Arkansas Odds

The Texas Longhorns will travel to Fayetteville to face the Arkansas Razorbacks in this huge game that kicks off this Saturday, September 11, 2021 at 7:00pm et.

This line opened with Texas -6 and the over at 58.5 total points and now the DraftKings College Football odds have Texas listed as a -7 point favorite against the spread with the total at 56 points.

The betting public is loving the Longhorns in this matchup and have 83% of the money is moving behind.

Texas Longhorns Betting Preview:

Texas comes into this game after getting the 38-18 Week 1 win against the 23rd ranked Louisiana Ragin Cajuns. With that win they were able to jump six spots, putting them now #15 in the nation.

They’ll now have to go on the road to this sold out crowd of 80,000 fans. Redshirt freshman QB Hudson Card will get his second start of his career. Card went who went 14 of 21 for 224 total yards and 2 touchdowns last week and he’ll hopefully not let the pressure get to him with the fans excited to be back and the stadium rocking.

Running back Bijan Robinson got banged up a little in that Week 1 game, but he should be good to go in this one and put up big numbers. Wide receiver Jordan Whittington put up 117 yards in their opener and you should also expect him to have a great performance against the Razorbacks secondary. Coach Steve Sarkisian will have Texas’s defense prepared to contain the run and let Arkansas Quarterback K.J. Jefferson sling it.

The Longhorns last season scored an average of 42.7 points a game and gave up an average of 28.5 points per game on defense. Texas is 5-0 straight up in their last 5 games played in September and the total has gone over in 4 of the Longhorns last 5 games on the road.

Report came in Wednesday that the Arkansas Razorbacks defensive end Dorian Gerald suffered a broken leg in practice and will miss the rest of the season. Without him, Arkansas will likely start junior Zach Williams. They were close to getting the team back to full strength until that unfortunate news came in.

Last week against Rice, the Razorbacks got off to an extremely slow start the game was 17-17 going into the fourth quarter until they woke up and scored on five of their last six possessions, getting the  38-17 win. Arkansas held Rice to 81 rushing yards, but that won’t be that case for this matchup.

The Razorbacks in 2020 only averaged 25.7 points per game, but on defense gave up an average of 34.9 points per game.

Arkansas is 2-18 straight up in their last 20 games when playing as the underdog and the Razorbacks are 0-8 against the spread in their last 8 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points.
