The Arkansas Razorbacks and the LSU Tigers meet in college basketball action from the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Saturday afternoon. Two teams who could use a win in the bottom half of the SEC, who comes out on top? Let’s dive in and find out with our Arkansas vs. LSU Prediction.

Arkansas Team Preview

The Arkansas Razorbacks come into this one looking to build on a 91-84 win over Missouri last time out. Tramon Mark leads the Hogs in scoring with 17.7 PPG while Khalif Battle has 11.2 PPG with 2.7 RPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Arkansas up to this point in the year. Trevon Brazile has 8.9 PPG with a team-high 6.5 RPG to lead the Hogs on the glass while Davonte Davis has 2.1 APG as well to lead Arkansas in assists up to this point in the year. As a team, Arkansas is averaging 76 PPG on 44.3% shooting from the field, 32.2% from three and 72.2% from the foul line this season.

LSU Team Preview

The LSU Tigers come into this one looking to snap a three-game losing streak after a 109-88 loss to Alabama last time out. Jordan Wright leads the Tigers in scoring and assists with 15.7 PPG and 2.7 APG along with 5.2 RPG while Jalen Cook has 15.1 PPG and 2.7 APG in 10 games so far this season. Will Baker has 11.1 PPG with 5.2 RPG to lead LSU on the glass up to this point in the year while capping off the trio of double-digit scorers for LSU so far this season. As a team, LSU is averaging 76.7 PPG on 45.3% shooting from the field, 34.7% from three and 72% from the foul line this season.

Arkansas vs. LSU Prediction

I’m backing Arkansas and the points in this one. I get why LSU is favored at home, but this Arkansas team is far too talented to continue struggling the way they have been. I also think that while LSU’s done a good job picking up some wins and turning things around from last season’s debacle, it also feels like this year’s LSU team is punching a bit above their weight. I’ll take a stab at Arkansas and the points.
