RED HOT Ben Burns has enjoyed an almost UNPRECEDENTED run of success here in August. Already, he's gone an INSANE 59-26 this month and we still have four days to go. Those four days just happen to be the start of the NCAAF season.
You'll want to join Ben now as he's anticipating another MONSTER season. A monthly sub also includes the start of NFL!
I'm playing on ARKANSAS. Auburn is coming off a fairytale season. After going 0-8 in the SEC in 2012, the Tigers were one play away from their second BCS Title in four years. This remarkable turnaround under Gus Malzahn has raised the bar in 2014 and you can see that by taking a look at the number for their first game of the season. All of last year the Tigers were favored by more than 20 points just once - aganst Florida Atlantic.
Not that Auburn doesn't deserve to be favored in this situation. They did beat Arkansas by 18 last year and that was in Fayetteville. The Razorbacks are basically where Auburn was at this time last season. The Hogs failed to win a single SEC game in Bret Bielema's first year here. But if the faithful need to draw inspiration from somewhere all they need to do is look across the field Saturday afternoon.
This SEC West rivalry has a history of upsets. The dog has taken the game outright eight of the last 13 years. The home team is just 4-8 straight up.
Arkansas will be better this year as they've had a year to adjust to Bielema's system. I don't think Auburn will be able to match last year's magic per se. They'll win here, but it will be closer than the oddsmakers projection. 1* free play.
