On Wednesday, March, 1 Arkansas travels to Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators. Here’s how to watch and all your betting info.
The Arkansas Razorbacks basketball team is on fire heading down to Florida to face the Gators. The Razorbacks are on a 5 game win streak in the SEC with 6 road wins in the SEC for the season.
The Hogs may be hot and battle tested on the road but Florida isn’t just another SEC basketball team. The Gators are currently ranked 12 in the country and picked by ESPN’s Joe Lunardi as a 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
According to oddsshark.com, the spread has the Gators at an 11.5 point favorite. Arkansas ranks 87th in their power rankings while the Gators come in at a whopping 5th.
One thing to look at is the edge finder on odds shark. Offensively, the Hogs are averaging better in all categories but the total rebounds.
Total score, field goal percentage, three-point percentage, and free throw percentage are all dominated by the Razorbacks. Flordia beats Arkansas 37.28 to 36.48 in total rebounds.
The offensive stats for Arkansas are alluring but not quite sweet enough for me to take them over the Gators. Florida is just too good to bet against in this matchup so I’m taking the Gators to smoke the Hogs and cover the 11.5 point spread.
