Bettors are reportedly backing Arkansas big-time against Georgia
Arkansas was a nationwide secret just weeks ago. Not anymore.
Since beginning the season 4-0 and upsetting No. 15 Texas and No. 7 Texas A&M, the Razorbacks are one of the best stories in college football. Arkansas is ranked No. 8 today as they travel to Athens, Ga., to take on the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs.
Gamblers have taken notice, too. The tweet below by ESPN gambling analyst David Purdum is proof of that. Georgia is a 17-point favorites, according to DraftKings, but that doesn’t seem to matter to those backing the Hawgs’ proponents.
More bets have been placed–and more money wagered–on Arkansas plus the points against Georgia than any other team @BetMGM books.
