Arkansas vs Texas A&M Prediction & Pick

Even though Texas A&M has more momentum on its side, Arkansas has the advantage of being the home team. The Razorbacks have been dominant at Bud Walton Arena, going 19-1 in their last 20 home games.

Arkansas is 10-1 at home so far this season with that lone loss coming against No. 4 Alabama. Meanwhile, Texas A&M is only 4-2 on the road with a plus-2.7 scoring margin, whereas Arkansas is a plus-16.1 at home. Furthermore, the Aggies are just 2-2 as underdogs while the Razorbacks are 13-3 as favorites.

This game should be closely-fought, but Arkansas' impressive play at home can't be ignored. Texas A&M will press all night, but the Razorbacks will be victorious in Fayetteville.

Final Score Prediction: Arkansas: 69 | Texas A&M: 65

Arkansas vs Texas A&M Best Bet

When it comes to the best bet, I'm actually looking at Texas A&M to cover as the +3.5 underdog. On top of being 6-3 ATS in their last nine games, the Aggies are 5-1 ATS against SEC rivals on the road this season.

Arkansas hasn't been that reliable, going 3-6 ATS in its last nine outings. If that isn't bad enough, the Razorbacks have failed to cover the spread in each of their last seven meetings with the Aggies.

Considering how Texas A&M is also the hotter team, I wouldn't be surprised if it keeps things close; potentially even pulling off the outright upset.

Bet: Texas A&M +3.5 (-110)
