Actually, you may both be right, you get two, two mints in one with this one.  Both defenses have holes, and both offense can score.  It looks like a high scoring shootout. 

The difference to me is Auburn is primarily a run based offense and Arky isn't awful against the run.  The Hogs are great at passing, Mallet will drill you if you give him time to set, but they also have better balance than AU because they have a good RB.  I think passing against a questionable pass defense, and balance, trumps Auburn's offense.  Leaning toward the home team and the points here.  Should be a great game to watch.  Too close for a big play, but one unit on Arkansas for me.

AUBURN has way too much offense for a bad Arkansas defense.

I like the Razorbacks here........they have the offense to score with Auburn......at home they will be ready.  Auburn has run as far as they can without a lose yet.......and this offense on the road is far, far better than what Tenn put on the field last week.

I kinda like Ar Kansas here.  Don't know a whole lot about either team but doesn't the homefield count for something

Hogs by 21

Unless Arkansas forces Auburn to turn the football over Auburn will win this game in a shootout.  I like the over in this game.  Mallett is an NFL-type QB and is much better then what he has shown so far this year.  I look for him to come out slinging the ball in this game but Auburn's running attack will ultimately win it in the fourth quarter.

No my friend, Arkansas is the sleeper here, its not worth a whole chunk of change, but I'm going to play Ark for a small bet that i believe has a lot of value, and as joe says above, the under isnt that bad of a bet also.

Damn i really want to take Auburn here, but I have some sort of bad feeling about this game, plus I have almost 15 units out on the early games today.

Really leaning towards the UNDER. SEC isn't known for high scoring games, and this year it will start to fade down to low scoring, ground and pound like it has always been.
 
I like both teams here, leaning more towards Auburn, even if Arkansas has Mallet, but look for a few picks today.
 
Think I'll take Auburn and the 2.5...and might make a parlay with the under too.. Should be a MONEY IN THE BANK game.

65 points in the SEC, 5 games into the season is just too much.  Take the under.

Okay, well I know the game started and I know I said I was LEANING Auburn and the Under.
 
 
But I ended up pulling the trigger on Arkansas. (Posted on my profile before the game started)
 
Believe it or not I watched ESPN all and for the first time ever  I made a pick based on what majority of them said. Crazy I know.
 
BOL to everybody with all your picks!!

I was going to seriously kick myself in the behind for not buying the hook if this game ended sitting on 64

Jerry Garcia, Bravo to you sir.
 
I really didn't see this game getting this many points, I was thinking 55 AT MOST. But I thankfully layed off the UNDER and just played ARKANSAS ATS.
