Against the Spread Pick
The Arkansas Razorbacks have lost three of their last four games, but there is no reason to panic–not for the team or for bettors. Their two most recent losses have both come in overtime and the other recent setback came via a 79-77 decision against South Carolina. Mason Jones has been absolutely on fire, with seven straight games with at least 17 points and three of those with at least 30 (one with 40). The Tennessee Volunteers have been far worse than the Hogs of late, losing four of their last five and failing to be overly competitive in those losses. Leading scorer Jordan Bowden has shot less than 50 percent from the floor in five of the past six outings. Arkansas is 5-2 ATS in its last seven following a loss. The Volunteers are 1-5 ATS in their last six at home, 2-5 ATS in their last seven against opponents with winning percentages over .600, and 1-5 ATS in their last six at home against opponents with winning home records. Lean toward the RAZORBACKS.
Over Under Pick
On the bright side for Tennessee, four different players are averaging in double-figures. In each of Arkansas’ last 10 games the winning team has scored at least 73 points. The over is 10-1 in the Razorbacks’ last 11 overall, 5-0 in their last five on the road, and 5-0 in their last five against opponents with winning records. It is also 4-1 in the Volunteers’ last five overall and 5-0 in their last five against opponents with winning records. Look for this one to go OVER the total.
