The Cotton Bowl oddsopened with the Razorbacks listed as 7.5 point favorites and that number hasbeen slowly bet up to eight points at some outlets as the public is all over the Hogs. The betting consensus shows that 61% of the public is behind Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl.

The Kansas State Wildcats are having a good year and should not be underestimated. They have played some of the best teams in the country and are playing well against top teams. The Hogs are a good team, but they have some serious question marks on defense.

The Cats have been cash cats at the betting window this year. The Wildcats are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0, 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog, and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall.

The Razorbacks offense is explosive and Tyler Wilson is one of the better quarterbacks in the country. He spreads the ball around and has a bevy of weapons that he can hit at anytime, however they struggle at bowl time. The Razorbacks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 bowl games and Head coach Bobby Petrino has trouble getting his team ready for the big game.

Quarterback Colin Klein is underrated. He is leading the team with 1,099 yards on 293 carries with 26 touchdowns and can score with the run and the pass. The Cats can run against the Hogs and will control the clock keeping this game close. The points are at a premium in the Cotton Bowl and the play is the Wildcats.
