The Arkansas Razorbacks are 2-1 this season as the try to replace the talent they lost off of last year’s team. Arkansas is averaging 86.3 points and they are shooting 46.8 percent from the floor with their opponents averaging 77 points and shooting 42 percent. Dusty Hannahs leads the Razorbacks averaging 19.3 points per game. Moses Kingsley is averaging 18 points and 10 rebounds, Anthlon Bell is averaging 16.3 points, and Jimmy Whitt is averaging 10.7 points. Arkansas has played well enough and their one loss was to Akron who is no slouch.
Georgia Tech is 4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread and 0-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Arkansas is 7-16 against the spread in their last 23 neutral site games, 1-7 against the spread against the SEC, and 1-8 against the spread following a win.
The line is up to six but I see this one being more competitive that that so I will take the points.
