Arkansas vs LSU Prediction & Pick

Playing in the SEC has proven to be tough for both of these squads. LSU's lone conference win came against this Arkansas team back on Dec. 28 at Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Arkansas has the advantage of playing at home this time around, where they have won 18 of their last 19 contests.

The Razorbacks have posted a reliable average scoring margin of +15.7 at home, while the Tigers have posted a subpar average scoring margin of -3.6 on the road. That's because Arkansas finds the open man and shoots 48.0% at Bud Walton Arena, which is the third-best home mark in the SEC.

LSU has lost five straight road games and I don't expect that streak to come to an end on Tuesday.

Final Score Prediction: Arkansas: 71 | LSU: 61

Arkansas vs LSU Best Bet

LSU is 0-5 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games and Arkansas is 1-6 ATS in its last seven games. Avoiding picking a side and focusing on the point total is the way to go here. The Razorbacks are allowing only 59.9 points per home game, while the Tigers give up 71.3 points in road contests.

The total has hit the under in six of Arkansas' last nine games overall and in 12 of its last 17 home games played on a Tuesday. LSU has been held to 60 or less points in four of its last five games, too. Expecting Arkansas to put up around 80 points and hit the over lines up as a bet with too much risk.

Bet: Under 138.5 Points (-105)
