Vanderbilt vs. Arkansas Prediction

I’m on Vanderbilt here. I get why Arkansas is favored, but Arkansas has been up there as one of the most disappointing teams in the country right there with USC when you look at what the team was expected to do coming into the season. I had Arkansas as a team that could make a run in the NCAA tournament at the start of the year, but now, they may be watching it from home unless they catch lightning in a bottle. Problem is, Vandy’s been a thorn in their side this season, winning both meetings outright and I’m not ready to lay points with Arkansas just because they want some revenge. I think Vandy’s live here. Give me Vanderbilt.
