Arkansas vs LSU Prediction

Arkansas is coming into this game as a 2.5 point favorite with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Arkansas has been playing well in their games this season and they only have 1 loss in their last 5 as they are playing great in their recent games. LSU has been the opposite, playing bad in a lot of their games this season and coming into this one on a losing streak. They are also coming off of a game against Alabama which they must have put a lot of physicality and emotion into that game as they only lost by 6 points. This is going to be a let down game for them and Arkansas has been playing much better in their games anyway. The best bet to place in this game is on Arkansas to cover the spread here.
