Alabama will take the field on Saturday night as a 32-point favorite over Arkansas. With Mac Jones slated to take the reigns of the offense, can the Tide cover that spread against the Razorbacks? Arkansas is coming off a 41-point home loss to Auburn last week.
Unfortunately for Jones, Mother Nature isn’t going to do him any favors. Early forecasts are calling for rain and potential thunderstorms all day on Saturday leading up to kickoff. Wind and precipitation shouldn’t be too bad during the actual game, but who knows what kind of condition the field will be in.
