Upon the arrival of Chad Morris as new Arkansas head coach were hopes of improved recruiting and production. Arkansas had collapsed under Brett Bielema after flirting with contender status. Unlike Bielema, Morris was going to spread out the offense and throw it around. Such a stark contrast in style needs time to develop for success with College Football betting Games. Certainly, a different type of player must be recruited. So far Morris is not making traction in his second season. Fans’ patience is already wearing thin. By contrast, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn is always on the hot seat.

Auburn Tigers vs. Arkansas Razorbacks Overview
Auburn has a sportsbook record of 5-1 both straight up and against the spread with 3-3 on totals. Last week the Tigers were on a bye that followed a 24-13 loss at Florida. Auburn ranks 55th for total offense with true freshman quarterback Bo Nix learning the ropes. Counter to that is an impressive defense ranked 18th for points allowed.
Following a 24-20 loss at Kentucky, the Razorbacks are 2-4 straight up, 2-4 vs. the odds, and 1-5 under the total. Arkansas ranks 80th for scoring offense and 75th for defense. To be exact those are the metrics that call into question the ability of Morris to turn around the program. Arkansas is not in a fertile recruiting territory and the SEC West is a brutally tough division. Morris is trying to push a boulder up a mountain.
