Against The Spread Pick
Arkansas once looked like a lock for the Big Dance, but have gone through several rough patches since the start of SEC play. The Razorback are 5-9 in the SEC and just snapped a five-game losing streak when they beat Missouri in their last game. Tennessee have clawed their way back to 7-7 in the conference, but still have a ton of work to do if they want to return to the tournament. They have been inconsistent as of late, alternating wins and losses over their last seven games. Note that Tennessee beat this Arkansas team 82-61 just two weeks ago, so I look for them to be competitive here as well. The Volunteers are 4-0 ATS against the Razorbacks in the last 4 meetings and I lean to the Vols to cash a ticket.
Over Under Pick
I like this total more because the Razorbacks defense has really dropped off. Over their 1-5 stretch, this Arkansas team is allowing about 77.1 points per game. Tennessee does not have a great defense either, and have seen the total go over in 8 of their 12 away games. The over is also 5-0 in the last 5 meetings and 9-1 in the Razorbacks last 10 games overall. Look for both teams to have scoring success and take the over to cash without much issue.
