Ole Miss vs Arkansas Betting Preview and Expert Picks
Week 12 of the season brings us the 69th meeting between these two teams and a matchup that has given us quite a few thrillers. There was the 52-51 Ole Miss win in Oxford last season, a 53-52 overtime win for Arkansas in 2015 and a 58-56 Arkansas win in 2001 that set a record with seven-overtime periods (that record was finally broken last year when Penn State and Illinois went nine overtimes). Needless to say there is a lot of history between these long time SEC rivals and in that history, Ole Miss has only gone into Fayetteville and come out with a victory twice. This year very well could make a third time as Ole Miss comes to Fayetteville with an 8-2 record to meet up with a Razorbacks team that is now 5-5 after losing back-to-back games to Liberty and LSU.

Ole Miss at Arkansas Betting Picks Week 12
This game brings us a matchup of two of the best rushing attacks in the nation, Ole Miss sits third in the country with 259.8 yards per game, behind triple option offenses Air Force and Army; meanwhile, Arkansas sits at 12th averaging 223.3 yards per game on the ground. Both teams also boast 1,000+ yard rushers so far on the season in Ole Miss's Quinshon Judkins and Arkansas' Raheim Sanders. Arkansas is also hopeful for the return of KJ Jefferson after missing both the Liberty and LSU games.

Ole Miss at Arkansas Prediction
This number just feels really high for two teams that build their offense around running the football. Yes both teams have very potent offenses and quarterbacks that can strike at any moment but, with a game focused around the run on both sides it will likely eat clock, even with the Ole Miss hurry up, and make it difficult for both these teams to score 30+ points. In the end I think this game stays under 64.5 and Ole Miss covers 34-28.
