2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Over'
The Razorbacks bottomed out last year as Bret Bielema began the painful process of overhauling the Arkansas program. Arkansas went 3-9 and is just 7-17 the past two years after going 21-5 in 2010 and 2011.
Arkansas did show signs of progress late in the season. The Razorbacks lost at Ole Miss by 10 (covering a 17-point spread), fell in a tough OT game with Mississippi State, and then gave LSU everything it could handle as a 26-point underdog, losing by just four. Arkansas has seven starters back on both sides of the ball and will be much more familiar with Bielema's program heading into this fall.
Arkansas has to open on the road with defending SEC champion Auburn. They also have a pair of tough road trips into Texas to take on Tech and A&M. Alabama, Georgia, LSU and Ole Miss also come to Arkansas this year (the Georgia game is in Little Rock).
I think Arkansas is going to be an improved team this year. They have a lot of indicators suggesting a much stronger record. But while they could be a good bet at the window against the spread I'm not sure how many times their performances will translate to wins for this wager.
I think that it will be a tall order for Arkansas to get bowl eligible at 6-6. But I actually think they can do it. Nicholls State, Northern Illinois and UAB should be gimmes. I think they can beat either Texas Tech or Texas A&M. I also think they will pull an upset in one of their four SEC home games. Add in a trip to Missouri and I think they can find their way to six victories. Play Arkansas 'over'.
