College Football Picks & Predictions - Arkansas vs. Auburn Week 7 NCAA Odds: Two top fifteen teams will meet in a key SEC ollege football picks match-up as #12 University of Arkansas visits #7 University of Auburn. NCAA Vegas odds makers have installed Auburn as -3½(-105) point college football predictions favorites playing at home.
Arkansas (4-1) came within a whisker of beating then #1 Alabama at home but now must play a college football predictions contest on the road against a tough opponent. This is a passing team, led by quarterback Ryan Mallett who, at 6’ 6” is one of the tallest quarterbacks to play NCAA football. A Heisman candidate, Mallett has lived-up to his billing, throwing for more than 1,700 yards and 13 touchdowns. He throws to a bunch of receivers, though the leading receiver is Joe Adams with 408 yards receiving. The running game is nothing but a complement and teams know that and still can’t handle Mallett. The Razorbacks, though, are not just about passing the ball – they play defense too. Arkansas is ranked in the top fifteen in scoring defense, though they will have their hands full against Auburn in today's week 7 college football picks contest.
Auburn (6-0) escaped with a close college football predictions match-up against Kentucky on the road 37-34. Auburn averages more than 36 points per college football picks contest and nearly 500 yards of total offense, but they have been involved in a lot of high scoring games and will be challenged by Mallett. The Tigers are led by their quarterback too, but in a much different way. Cameron Newton is a duel threat on offense as a runner and a passer. He is the team’s leading rusher with 672 yards, including a 71-yard touchdown run, but he has also passed for 12 touchdowns and over 1,100 yards. Auburn is ranked 8th nationally as a rushing team and features a deep stable of backs, including Michael Dyer and Onterio McCalebb. As a group, they are averaging 5.8 yards per carry with 16 rushing touchdowns.
More than anything, this week 7 college football predictions contest will be a battle between Mallett and Newton – whichever quarterback scores the most points win. The over/under in this college football picks match-up is 60( ov-115) so take the over and take the Tigers to cover at home and defeat Mallett’s Razorbacks, with their dynamic running game just too much to overcome.
