The Georgia Bulldogs and Arkansas Razorbacks meet Tuesday in college basketball action at the Bud Walton Arena.

Rayshaun Hammonds is averaging 13.2 points and 6.4 rebounds while Nicolas Claxton is averaging 12.8 points and 2.2 assists. Tyree Crump is the third double-digit scorer and Derek Ogbeide is grabbing 5.9 rebounds. The Georgia Bulldogs are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 72.8 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia Bulldogs are allowing 31.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The Georgia Bulldogs have lost four of their last five road games.

The Arkansas Razorbacks could also use a win after losing five of their last six games. The Arkansas Razorbacks are averaging 78.1 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 72.7 points on 41.2 percent shooting. Daniel Gafford is averaging 16.2 points and 9.2 rebounds while Isaiah Joe is averaging 14.4 points and 1.7 assists. Mason Jones is the third double-digit scorer and Jalen Harris is dishing 6.2 assists. The Arkansas Razorbacks are shooting 33.1 percent from beyond the arc and 64.8 percent from the free throw line. The Arkansas Razorbacks are allowing 32.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.7 rebounds per game. The Arkansas Razorbacks have split their last eight home games.

The Bulldogs are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Southeastern and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Razorbacks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Southeastern, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Bulldogs are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Arkansas and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 10-2 in Razorbacks last 12 overall. The under is 15-6 in Bulldogs last 21 road games.

Both teams enter this contest in full struggle mode, but the Arkansas Razorbacks have shown more promise recently, which includes almost beating the Texas Tech Red Raiders on the road. Arkansas is still good enough defensively to put together some wins and are winning by an average of 8.8 points at home this season. The Georgia Bulldogs lack the outside shooting to hang around against decent teams and are losing by an average of 12.8 points on the road. Arkansas should be able to defend its way to a comfortable victory.

Pick:
Arkansas -7
