Tennessee vs. Arkansas Prediction

I’m on Arkansas here. I’m not rushing to bet this game because Arkansas has been so disappointing this season, but this just feels like do or die for Arkansas as they’re running out of time to get their act together. There’s off-court issues for this team, but I think Arkansas does enough to work through them and bag themselves at least a cover here.
