Alabama vs Arkansas Prediction & Pick

The first meeting of the season between these SEC rivals didn't go well for Arkansas, losing 84-69 at home back in January. Unfortunately for the Razorbacks, this game won't be any easier. Alabama is a perfect 13-0 at Coleman Coliseum, where it averages 89.8 PPG (No. 2) and wins by an average of 27.7 points.

Arkansas is also an unimpressive 2-6 on the road this season and has lost four of its six meetings against ranked opponents. I also see the Razorbacks getting beat up in the paint all night long. While they average just 35.5 rebounds per game (No. 111), the Crimson Tide lead the nation with a 44.4 RPG clip, which only grows to 46.2 RPG at Coleman Coliseum.

Arkansas will make things interesting at times, but Alabama has the talent and firepower to solidify itself as the SEC team to beat with a victory.

Final Score Prediction: Alabama: 85 | Arkansas: 75

Alabama vs Arkansas Best Bet

When it comes to the best bet, I see Alabama covering as the 8.5-point favorite. Although Arkansas is a respectable 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games, it has only covered the spread once in seven road matchups against SEC rivals this season. Meanwhile, Alabama is 6-1 ATS in conference games at home and is 11-5 ATS in its last 16 outings overall.

After Alabama destroy Arkansas in their last meeting, I fully expect the Crimson Tide to win big again this afternoon.

Bet: Alabama -8.5 (-110)
