The Arkansas Razorbacks have their matchup set in the SEC Basketball Tournament.
Arkansas Razorbacks basketball is set to play against Ole Miss in their first game in the SEC Tournament. The Razorbacks will be rematching them after beating the Rebels 98-80 back in February.
Daryl Macon scored a ridiculous 30 points in their last match up. Not only did Macon hang 30 on the Rebs but Kingsley, Beard, and Barford all had double-digit scoring.
Another noticeable stat from that game is the scoring column for Ole Miss. Arkansas held “Mr. Double-Double” Sebastian Saiz to a total of 8 points and 5 rebounds. The Hogs must do this again if they plan on making any kind of run in the SEC Tournament.
According to ESPN.com, the Razorbacks are a 5 point favorite with the over/under at 159, Arkansas is 13-5-2 as a favorite. The money line for Arkansas is -200.
Overall, I think Arkansas stands a good chance in this game. They should be well rested after receiving the double-bye in the tournament. Ole miss played just last night in their defeat of Missouri.
The rest can also go in a negative direction as well. Arkansas not playing may be trouble. Ole Miss could come in more relaxed after already playing their first game and give the Hogs a little bit of trouble.
Regardless if Ole Miss is warmed up or not, I am still putting my money on the Hogs for this matchup. Arkansas should come out and find a way to get the win against a team that obviously will be wanting some payback. Arkansas is just a superior team in my honest opinion.
The Razorbacks take on the Rebels at 8:00 p.m. tonight. This game will be televised on the SEC Network, on Watch ESPN and on the ESPN app. Woo Pig!
