Against the Spread Pick

The Razorbacks were looking like a contender for the SEC title, but recently they have gone through a rough stretch. They are just 1-3 straight up an against the spread in their last four games. Most recently, they lost to South Carolina as a 7-point favorite. As for Alabama, they have a couple quality wins, but it likely is not enough just yet to have them in the tournament. They just lost to LSU 90-76, which snapped a four-game win streak. One important note is that Alabama plays so much better at home, where they are currently 7-2 ATS. Over the last 9 meetings between these teams, the underdog is 7-2 ATS. Alabama is also 10-1 in their last 11 home games. Because of this, I lean to the Tide to keep it close.

Over Under Pick

When Alabama is involved in a game, the over tends to be the way to look. The Tide are averaging 82.4 points per game compared to Arkansas, who scores 74.2. The over is now 7-1 in the Razorbacks’ last 8 games and 4-0 in the last four meetings between these teams. Arkansas is also allowing 73.2 points per game in road games, and I believe the Crimson Tide are going to run all over them. That said, it is a lean at best to the over.
