Auburn vs Arkansas Prediction

Arkansas began the season in the top ten as they were seen as one of the more talented teams in the nation. Injuries slowed the Razorbacks down and forced them to an average season, going 19-12 overall and 8-10 in the conference. This is a team that is much better than their record indicates, as they will enter this game tonight fully healthy. The star of this Razorbacks team is Nick Smith Jr, who is slated to be a first-round pick in the upcoming NBA draft.

If Auburn wants to have any chance to pull off the win tonight, they will have to limit the production of the young star. The Tigers have had a solid year themselves going 20-11 overall and 10-8 in the SEC. This is a typical Bruce Pearl-led team. They play hard and grind a lot of games out. The one issue Auburn does have at times is scoring the basketball. This is a team that averages 72.7 points per game but can go on some serious scoring droughts. Big man Johni Broome was the best offensive threat for the Tigers, averaging a team-high 14.0 points per game. Arkansas enters play as a three-point favorite.

I am all over the Razorbacks tonight. This is a line that I expect to continue to jump through the day, so try and lock this in as soon as possible. Arkansas is a much better team than their record indicates, and I believe they will take care of business in this game tonight. The Razorbacks are as healthy as they could be for this game, and that is a scary sight for opposing teams. They match up very well here with Auburn, and I think that they will be too much offensively for the Tigers to keep pace with. Let’s stay hot and cash in!
