The emotional high from Saturday night’s win over the Alabama Crimson Tide in Death Valley still hasn’t faded, but the Tigers can’t afford to take their eye off the ball now.
The Alabama win put LSU on the inside track to win the SEC West, and with a win and some help from the Crimson Tide against Ole Miss, coach Brian Kelly could clinch a division title on Saturday if all goes well.
But for that to happen, the Tigers can’t slip up in an obvious potential trap game as the team hits the road in Week 11 to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks, who sit at 5-4 on the season and are coming off a disappointing loss at home to Hugh Freeze and the Liberty Flames.
The Hogs will hope to fare better at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Saturday when one of the hottest teams in college football comes to town for an 11 a.m. kickoff on ESPN.
We’ll give you the latest point spread, money line odds and over/under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet at BetMGM.
Fresh off the win over Alabama, it seems the oddsmakers are a bit wary of an LSU letdown, though the Tigers are still a field-goal favorite on the road, as of 11 a.m. CT on Monday.

With [autotag]Major Burns[/autotag] making his return to the field in Saturday’s win, the biggest question mark health-wise for the Tigers is guard [autotag]Garrett Dellinger[/autotag]. He’s missed the last three games, and his status remains unclear moving forward. [autotag]Sevyn Banks[/autotag] is approaching his expected return, though we haven’t heard an update on him in a bit.
Arkansas, meanwhile, is relatively healthy though it lost star safety Jalen Catalon for the year earlier in the season.

Prediction and best bet
As mentioned above, it’s clear from the current point spread that Vegas sees this one as a trap game for the Tigers. That’s understandable, as Arkansas is still a dangerous team despite taking a few tough losses this fall so far. I’m not sure I see it, though. With the Tigers hitting their stride on both offense and defense, I don’t see Arkansas being able to keep up in this one, even at home. Give me LSU to win and cover.
Prediction: LSU 35, Arkansas 27
