Despite coming off a huge win over Alabama, LSU opened as just a three-point favorite heading into Saturday’s road contest against an Arkansas team looking to bounce back from a loss to Liberty in its last outing.
As the week has gone on, the betting lines have sat essentially still. As of 1:30 p.m. CT on Friday, the Tigers remain just a three-point favorite with the over/under still set at 62.5. The only difference in the latest lines is that LSU is a slightly greater favorite according to the money line.

Total – O/U
The Tigers could clinch the SEC West with a win on Saturday if Alabama takes care of business against Ole Miss. If they can keep winning, they also remain in the College Football Playoff discussion.
But they will need to avoid a trap game this week, and Vegas seemingly expects this one to be a close game.
