TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28TH
#247 KANSAS (+2′) over Arkansas at 5:30 PM EST
Even though the Jayhawks enter this contest on a dismal 0-3 SU and ATS run and holding a rough 1-6 SU and 2-4-1 ATS mark in their last seven battles, Kansas will step up in a big way inside the Liberty Bowl and upset Arkansas. The Razorbacks struggled in November as well inking a 1-3 SU record and head coach Sam Pittman and his boys will definitely have issues here.
In the Liberty Bowl, underdogs (or pick ’em) have been solid investments notching a solid 27-18 ATS record. If our “play on” pup is tackling a foe that busts in off a straight up loss, this situation improves to a golden 7-0 ATS. Also, since 2015, Big 12 bowl teams that are matched up against a foe that enters off a pointspread loss own a lucrative 17-3 ATS record. Lastly, in their last six bowl battles, Rock-Chalk-Jayhawk has assembled a nearly perfect 5-1 SU and ATS mark.
Since 2016, teams from the mighty SEC conference have been average at best as bowlers notching a soft 38-33 SU and 33-37-1 ATS record. If our SEC school is priced as a favorite and currently matched up against an opponent that arrives off a pointspread loss, this conference angle crashes to a woeful 3-14-1 ATS. In addition, the Razorbacks haven’t enjoyed much success in the college bowl season inking a soft 9-15 SU and 8-15-1 ATS mark in their last 24 tries. Provided Arkansas is priced as an underdog or a short favorite of -2.5 or less this team trend falls to a miserable 2-14 SU and ATS.
Head coach Lane Leipold is making significant strides at KU, and he wants to add a bowl win to his teams resume. Look for the Jayhawks explosive offense (avg 7.01 ypp) to be the difference in this Big 12 vs SEC showdown. Take Kansas. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
