Creighton vs Arkansas Prediction & Pick
Fans are in for a treat on Tuesday night as two of the top-10 teams in the nation meet head-to-head in Hawaii. Arkansas is still missing a five-star recruit as Nick Smith Jr. remains day-to-day with a knee injury. It hasn't made a huge difference quite yet, but this is the first test for the Razorbacks in 2022.
Arkansas plays its best basketball when it is forcing turnovers. However, Creighton averages just 9.0 turnovers per game (T-No. 11 in NCAA) and owns a 1.89 assist to turnover ratio (No. 6 in NCAA). Head coach Greg McDermott will have the Bluejays to take advantage of an aggressive Razorbacks squad.
Final Score Prediction: Creighton: 72 | Arkansas: 68

Creighton vs Arkansas Best Bet
Creighton has looked unstoppable through its first five games of the season. The Bluejays have won each contest by at least 12 points and outscored Texas Tech by 11 in the second half on Monday. They rank fourth in the country in offensive efficiency and 15th in shooting percentage (51.0%).
Arkansas' best hope of winning here would be via the long ball as Creighton has been susceptible to giving up open looks from beyond the arc. The Razorbacks are only shooting 30.0% from three-point range, though (T-No. 255 in NCAA). Seeing that mark suddenly improve in Maui would be surprising.
Bet: Creighton Bluejays ML (-115)
