Arkansas vs UNC Asheville Prediction & Pick

Arkansas comes into the contest red-hot. Eric Musselman's group has gone almost a full month since its last loss on Nov. 22, winning six straight contests, including a win over then-No. 17 San Diego State during this stretch. The Razorbacks are a well-balanced squad, ranking in the top 40 for team PPG (78.9) and placing No. 42 in PPG allowed (62.9).

Arkansas has the clear talent advantage that should help this team overpower a Bulldogs defense that sits No. 305 in scoring defense.

Final Score Prediction: Arkansas: 85 | UNC Asheville: 75

Arkansas vs UNC Asheville Best Bet

The Razorbacks are set to tear up their opponent, who's allowing 76.9 PPG. However, UNC Asheville can rack up points in a hurry as well. They're No. 56 in the country with 76.7 PPG, with Pember (19.7 PPG) leading the charge. There should be plenty of buckets with seven double-digit scorers combined between these two sides. I like the over here.

Bet: Over 151.5 (-110)
