The Aggies came through for us on the cover, and they came through for moneyline bettors on Thursday night, knocking off UCONN. The upset was led by guard Teddy Allen who was dynamite the entire game. Allen really stepped up and led the way, supported by a spirited defensive effort. Arkansas got a first-round scare from a very good Vermont basketball team. Arkansas pulled away towards the end of the game and ended up winning the game by four points. They will once again be tested tonight by New Mexico State. The star for Arkansas has been senior guard JD Notae. Notae, who is a native of Georgia, has stepped up all season long and played a huge role in their win on Thursday in the second half. They will need Notae to step up once again if they want to continue to dance to the Sweet 16. The Razorbacks are a six-point favorite for tonight’s game.

I will be staying away from a side in this game because I hate betting on public dogs. I think the line actually suggests that Arkansas may roll in this spot and that the performance we saw on Thursday was a fluke from the Aggies. The play I am taking is going to be to back a team total under in the New Mexico State Aggies. The Aggies really struggled to score in the first half against UCONN, and I think this Arkansas defense matches up better and is more athletic. I expect a strong game plan on Teddy Allen that will force him into a lot of double teams. The pace that New Mexico State will play with will also favor this team total under. I think Arkansas defense steps up here, and we cash another play-in!
