The Arkansas Razorbacks will look to build on their first win of the season, coming in the form of an 81-58 beatdown of UC-Davis in their last outing. Mason Jones led the Hogs with 21 points on 6 of 10 shooting with 4 threes and a team-high 8 rebounds while Adrio Bailey came right behind with 20 points. Isaiah Joe added 14 points and 3 steals while Daniel Gafford chipped in 12 points and 4 blocks to round out the quartet of double-digit scorers for the Razorbacks in the winning effort. Jalen Harris scored just 2 points but dished out a team-high 4 assists in the win for Arkansas.

Indiana is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games while the under is 6-1-1 in their last 8 road games. Arkansas is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win.
Arkansas getting points at home is tempting, but this is too low of a line for me to pass up considering how well Indiana is putting points on the board so far this season. The Razorbacks definitely have a rest advantage, but some slight rust could come along with that and rust isn’t what you want to have when you play a team like Indiana. I’ll lay the points with the Hoosiers here.
